“Amazing!”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

I loved this hotel, we stayed on a suite on the 5th floor and the views of the Taj are just stunning! The service is top class, we really enjoyed staying here and will definitely recommend it to my friends and relatives. If you go to Agra, you should stay here, even if it is expensive, it's worth every penny.

I loved every minute of my stay at the Amarvilas. From the moment I walked into the lobby and saw the breath taking view of the Taj , the same view in my room, to very creative pool, and fabulous meals. Everything here was just terrific.

I recently stayed two nights at the Oberoi in Agra. The hotel and staff were all very nice. Once spa services and meals were added to the bill, the value was a little thin for what we were paying. The hotel seems like it is designed so that you don't leave and end up paying 1500 rupees for chicken masala. I had been eating that for 150 rupees in Varanasi two days earlier.

I should have eaten at restaurants outside the hotel, true, but the prices at the restaurant were offensive.

My girlfriend also got very sick with a stomach bug and the concierge also seemed unable to get her Imodium with a doctors recommendation.

My wife took ill shortly after we checked in. The staff nearby were genuinely concerned and word quickly spread among the staff and management. For the rest of our one night stay there was continued interest in her well being.
The complimentary golf club ride to the Taj is a huge plus. Coffee, tea and snacks are provided for those guests getting up to see the Taj at dawn. Afterwards, you return to the hotel for a very very good breakfast.

After our tour of the Taj, we left on a long road trip and without our asking, we were provided with a complimentary lunch box each. These people are truly wonderful

From the rose petal welcome to the traditional yoghurt and sugar farewell, this place is top notch. Upon arrival, the first thing you notice is the view of the Taj Mahal from the reception room. It literally takes your breath away. As a matter of fact, each room has a view of the beautiful pool below and the Taj Mahal in the distance. At sunset, dancers come out on the roof and you can enjoy the show from any one of the terraces or even from your lounge chair at the pool. An true oasis to come home to after all the sightseeing that Agra has to offer.

This is absolute the perfect place with the best professionals we have met in Rajastan!
Everything is 100% and the people are not to formel but just very good. Of course the view of the Taj Mahal is perfect, but without that the stay is perfect.

This is a great place to stay for your visit to the Taj Mahal. It is only about 600m from the east gate, so an easy walk, or you can ride on golf carts provided by the hotel.
The hotel is very good, and our room was very clean and tidy. Food in the restaurants was great. And just wonderful having views of the Taj from many parts of the hotel.
I really liked their scheme for tips; guests were invited to leave any gratuities in an envelop at the front desk. This is much more convenient than trying to find small change for every porter, waiter and other staff member.

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
