We only had one night in Agra but wanted a hotel with a view of the Taj Mahal. The Oberoi Amarvilas - although incredibly expensive - provides spectacular views. The rooms are beautiful and the service is impeccable. It is also incredibly convenient for sunrise viewings of the Taj Mahal, just down the road and the hotel provides complimentary electric...

This magnificent palace-type hotel is renowned for its bedroom views of the Taj Mahal and, on the basis that a couple of nights might be just affordable, be aware of the extras: a packet of biscuits from the room bar marked clearly as IR 60 was billed as IR 2000 but admittedly the reception dropped the item when it was...

Whilst in Agra on 9th Feb, for our last night special treat we put our best clothes on and went to the Oberoi for a drink and dinner. Its a beautiful hotel and i can see why it gets such good reviews, however at reception we explained that we hadn't made a reservation and would like to have dinner in...

We were hesitant to take a day on our trip from Delhi to Jaipur to see TajMahal, but the lady that helped book all of our Oberoi stay and travel recommended it and it was absolutely worth it. We had great views of the Taj Mahal and it was beautiful experience to watch it as the sun rises. Rooms were...

We only came for brunch after a sunrise tour, as the place is a short walk from the east gate to the Taj Mahal complex. Very attentive staff, omelettes etc. made to order, fresh and delicious buffet, and great Danish pastries (and I'm Danish!). Only downside was that I didn't get to sit in their beautiful garden. About 4000 INR...

Unparalleled service from the moment we arrived until we departed. Excellent food, beautiful pool, spectacular grounds, oh and there is the view from every room of the Taj Mahal. A must place to stay if visiting Agra.

This hotel was magical, the service is extraordinary and the property is just beautiful. I had a view of the Taj from my room which is beautifully decorated, the pool area is stunning as well. The only thing that was so-so is the big thali dinner we had. I found this to be true at most hotels in India, they...

We just completed a 19 day visit to 8 locations in Northern India and had the pleasure of staying at five different Oberoi hotels. This was our first trip to India and the Oberoi hotels introduced us to facilities and services at levels above what we have experienced at the best hotels in other parts of the world. We have...

Fantastic hotel with great staff. Anything you want or need is done for you. Hotel is beautiful and the views were magnificent from our room. You couldn't be closer to the Taj Mahal unless you decided to open up a stall across the road. Gardens and courtyards are beautiful and peaceful. Great place to stay if you are coming to...

Perfect and beautiful as all the oberoi vilas are. I had a beautifully furnished room with a big balcony facing the Taj Mahal. Service is perfect. I want to express a special thank you to the Chef Ankoush with whom I had the honor to visit the hotel kitchen (cleaner than many I have seen in Europe!) and to share...

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
