Stunning uninterrupted views of the Taj Mahal from every private and public room. I have only good things to say about this hotel. It was built in 2001 and was designed to mirror the Taj. It is stylish, elegant and sophisticated but also comfortable and welcoming. The staff are charming, warm and extremely helpful in every way. The gardens and...

Every room at this Ob eroi has a view of the Taj Mahal. We were able to say good morning and good night to the Taj. This hotel was beautiful and the service was impressive.

Ok so this is nearly a year overdue but I wanted to make sure my experience was here. Amazing hotel! I'm not one for luxury but I'm so glad it married a lady who enjoys the finer things in life.

Exemplary hotel. The rooms, communal areas, gardens and restaurants are all of a very high standard. When the haze lifted towards the afternoon the view of the Taj Mahal tempted me out onto the balcony to enjoy it in quiet contemplation with the hotel's manicured lawns serving as a lovely foreground.

The place is simply a dream and the best you can get, maybe on a global scale. Still for the price you are willing to pay service could definitely be better.

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
