Because of that, we decided to splurge and it was worth it.

My daughter and I stayed at the Oberoi for two days while touring the Agra area and visiting the Taj Mahal. We couldn't have hoped for a better hotel. Everything about our stay was perfect. The grounds are breathtaking and the hotel itself is gorgeous, and a true tribute to the Mughal style. Our room was the kind of hotel...

You go here for the fantastic views of the Taj Mahal. This is a stunning looking hotel. The greeting was lovely and the staff very attentive. We had a balcony room but the view from all rooms were great. We watched indian dancing on the hotel terrace. We ate in the restaurant serving continental foods, the quality was really good.

This hotel is perhaps one of the most relaxing places we've been to. It's ideal to use as a base when visiting the Taj Mahal and surrounding monuments.

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
