I have stayed with major 5 star categories hotels of the world but when it comes to the Oberoi Group Hotels no one can beat them in hospitality. Straight from the Welcome to Check out the experience was impeccable. The best thing about the hotel was the hospitality of the staff who were always seen wearing a smile which is...

Just returned home after a three night stay and everything still seems a little surreal! The hotel is amazing in all ways and highly recommended.

This hotel and grounds are simply beautiful. We stayed 2 nights in a fourth floor Palace room with a beautiful view of the Taj Mahal. The fair sized rooms are beautifully decorated without being overly ornate. The beds are very comfortable with crisp linens. The bathrooms are a hint small but have a separate shower with a choice of 2...

Like many, we stayed for only one night when we visited the Taj. The rooms were clean, well laid out and of course the balcony provided an excellent view of the Taj and the hotel pool areas.

We lay on our bed in our sumptuous room and looked out over the balcony to beyond the sybaritic swimming pool to see the Taj Mahal glowing in the evening sun. This was a hotel out of Shangri-la or some other mythical paradise (which Agra, an ugly and polluted city, is definitely not). All the hotel facilities - the shops,...

When the majority of your guests stay just one night and tend to arrive late and be up early to visit the Taj Mahal then I suppose it is only to be expected that such a large hotel has a feeling of just being a big rather functional property. Before I am too harsh it is in a great location...

This hotel is just heaven. You drive through Agra which really isn't an attractive town and then through the gates into stunning landscaped grounds.

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
