For a trip to see the Taj Mahal, The Oberoi is simply a no-brainer! The views from the balcony rooms are not to be missed. The grounds are splendid and the service and attention to detail are what makes the hotel so special. The management suggested a show Friday evening that depicted the love story behind the Taj. It's an...

If you want to go to an impressive looking hotel not far from the Taj Mahal that also gives you a view of the Taj, this is the place to go. When we walked through the entrance, we were taken to the lounge area where my breath caught at the beautiful view of the Taj through the large doors. My...

Beautiful hotel in wonderful lush and manicured gardens. But of course the main attraction is the view of the Taj from almost every point in the hotel. We chose a room on the third floor (306) with a terrace overlooking the Taj. The services and amenities are as you would expect for a top luxury hotel, shame about the miserable...

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
