“Unforgettable”
Reviewed 23 April 2012 via mobile

What else can you say about a luxury hotel in which every room has a view to the Taj Mahal?
My wife and I had one of the most romantic days of our lives there. Everything was perfect, and I mean it! One night I made a small comment that my dish was different than what I expected and before I knew it they had another one in front of me :-)
when you go to Agra this hotel is definitely worth it.

Stayed September 2011

This was an expensive option, but worth every penny. We opted for it to enjoy the luxury of a view of the Taj Mahal from every room and it was stunning to have the it so close. Our room was beautiful with a terrace on which we could sit and gaze at the Taj.
This is a real 5 star hotel, with the service levels to match. The pool area is beautiful and while we were sunbathing, complimentary chilled bottles of water, face towels and even mango ice cream were brought to us. The restaurants were of an extremely high standard and the food and drink delicious - the one specialising in Indian cuisine was a great experience. The hotel has a policy of staff not taking tips, with a request for guests instead to place a single tip in a box at departure. This is a relief, since the service is attentive and impeccable at all times and you'd otherwise be tipping all the time.

This review is long overdue. Everything about this hotel is excellent. The views of the Taj are second to none, the rooms are beautifully maintained, the service is top notch, the pool is beautiful and the food is delicious. Probably the only downside is the price, however, if you visit off-season during the monsoons you can get a bogof deal as we got...we had interconnecting rooms for a family of four at the price of one room.

My husband and I just returned from a 4 day excursion to Agra to see the Taj Mahal. We were on a Silversea cruise and disembarked at Cochin and flew to Delhi and then drove to Agra fo see the Taj. We then flew back to Bombay to rejoin the ship. Ventours (As India tour company) made all the arrangements which included our stay at the Oberi in New Delhi as well as the Oberi Amarvilas in Agra. It was a wonderful and memorable glimpse of India. Highly recommend the Oberi Hotels and Ventours.

Room Tip: No bad rooms, all have verandas that overlook the Taj Mahal with beautiful grounds.

Very convenient hotel to visit the Taj Mahal, since it's a few minutes by golf buggy to the entrance.

We arrived in the afternoon and had pre-arranged through the hotel to see a moonlight viewing of the Taj Mahal (the night after the full moon). We then went back at 6:30 the next morning, with tickets and a guide organised by the hotel. The guide was excellent. It was well worth going first thing, as there were fewer people and the temperature was lower.

We stayed a second night at the Amarvilas, and unfortunately got no sleep due to loud music playing somewhere outside the hotel all night. Otherwise, the hotel was excellent, with great service, good food and a good spa.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Taj Mahal is extraordinary as much for what it is as how it has escaped the banality of cliché. For 350 years, this monument evokes a sense of wonder. Only by being there can you witness its true majesty, its symmetry, its setting and the delicacy of its carved marble inlaid with precious stones. Now just suppose you were to overlook it from your hotel room? The Oberoi Amarvilas is 600 metres from this tribute to love. The lavish interiors and elaborate gardens add to the serenity of the scene. The guestrooms are palatial: all have magical views and are luxuriously furnished with traditional fabrics, white marble, hand-crafted ornaments and every modern amenity. There is a luxury spa offering a range of therapies, a swimming pool where snacks and drinks are served; an ornamented ballroom and fine restaurants to suit the international palate. But the lobby lounge is a feast for the eye designed, as it was, around that glorious view of the Taj Mahal. ... more   less
