My family and I stayed here over Christmas last year. We booked our stay a week before our arrival. This is our first stay in an oberoi hotel and will not be the last.

We arrived in Agra on Saturday January 10th - it was cold and foggy. When we entered the Oberoi, our mood changed immediately. The entrance hall is spectacular and we were immediately ushered onto the terrace for tea and a mysterious and ghostly view of the Taj. The public rooms and gardens of the hotel and are incredible. All bedrooms...

A lovely hotel with fantastic views of the Taj Mahal. However, it is the team that really make your stay. Always smiling, ever friendly and truly putting into practice the Indian belief that 'guest is god'. They really couldn't do any more. Thoroughly recommended if you want a complete spoiling experience in India.

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
