It's hard to imagine a hotel could be better than this. Our 2 night stay was flawless. We were checked in on the balcony (with a magical view of the Taj Mahal) and taken directly to our room. After an overnight train trip and early morning arrival, it was heaven to have a room with THE view not to mention a hot shower! We, of course, ventured out to see the Taj but pretty much spent the rest of the time enjoying the wonderful, colourful hotel. It's stunning - the architecture, the lush gardens and pool, the rooms, the restaurants are all top rate. And did I mention the view?! The Taj Mahal is ever present - as are reminders of it in the architecture, design and decor. And to top it off, the staff were, without exception, amazing. I especially loved the chef inviting us into the kitchen to see the Tandoor oven and to show us how they made parathas. I'd stayed elsewhere in Agra on a previous trip and whilst it was a lovely hotel, it's nowhere close to Amarvillas.
Absolutely worth every $ - don't hesitate to stay here for the ultimate hotel experience.
- 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
