Without a doubt the hotel with the best of the Taj Mahal
The only Agra hotel to offer uninterrupted views of the Taj Mahal from every room
Just 600 metres from the iconic Taj Mahal itself
The Oberoi Amarvilas is one of the most iconic hotels in the world due to it's spectacular view of the Taj Mahal. The view can be enjoyed from all of the hotel rooms and suites so there really is no bad room here, and the lobby, lounge and bar look out to the Taj as well. The hotel bar is in fact the only bar in the world with views of the Taj Mahal and drinks here or on the bar terrace are exceptional. The whole resort is a picturesque displace of terraced lawns, tinkling fountains, reflection pools and pavilions with sumptuous interiors. The colourful umbrellas around the pool area create a beautifully cheery picture with fountains spilling down the walkways on either side of the pool and lush gardens spreading beyond with the Taj Mahal towering over them in the distance.
There are 95 rooms and seven suites at The Oberoi Amarvilas, and all either have balconies or vast floor to ceiling windows looking out to the Taj Mahal. Burma Teak flooring, tea armoires and elegant marble bathrooms take you back to an era of Emperors and Prices.
The hotel has two main restaurants, one serving traditional Indian cuisine and the other both International and Indian dishes. Afternoon tea is served in the lounge or on the hotel terrace, and the bar offers a wide variety of cocktails each evening.
The Oberoi Amarvilas is located in Agra, just 600 metres from the world-famous Taj Mahal. Guests can enjoy a gentle stroll down to the Taj Mahal or hop onto the hotel golf buggies which deliver guests back and forth throughout the day.
Agra is approximately a three and a half hour drive from Delhi, or there is a domestic airport just thirty minutes from the hotel. The railway station is just 20 minutes away.
The Taj Mahal is considered one of the Seven New Wonders of the World and is widely considered one of the most beautiful buildings ever created. It was built as a mausoleum built for the Mughal ruler Shah Jahan’s wife, Mumtaz Mahal, and the love that inspired this is as much of a draw to the spot as the beauty of the building itself. The Taj Mahal is visited by people from all over the world and where better to stay on such a visit than a hotel from which you can enjoy the view of the Taj Mahal at every moment.
The Oberoi Amarvilas is a five-star resort and so comes with all of the luxuries and services you could wish for including: complimentary Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, meeting rooms, concierge, car rental, a beauty salon, laundry and valet service, doctor on call, and as well as the outdoor swimming pool there is a steam room, spa and fitness centre.
