Quite simply the place to stay in Agra. If the budget can cope (and it’s probably just for one night after-all), then no doubt, this is one of the finest hotel experiences in the world. It goes without saying that being an Oberoi property, accommodation and facilities are first class. But this is all about the location. Amarvilas is currently the only hotel in Agra with a direct view of the majestic Taj Mahal. Experience India’s most famous and romantic landmark as the sun rises and again as the sun sets, all from the comfort of your private balcony. Beat that!
The hotel is located 600 meters from the Taj Mahal and all rooms, suites, lobby, bar and lounge offer breathtaking views of the monument. Built in a style inspired by Moorish and Mughal architecture, the resort is a splendid display of terraced lawns, fountains, reflection pools and pavilions with rich interiors that take you back to an era of Emperors and Princes. Richly detailed interiors are perfectly complemented by a choice of international and Indian cuisine. A range of activities are on offer to relax and recharge yourself. The outdoor swimming pool and surrounding gardens are simply magnificent.
The hotel has 95 rooms and 7 suites with or without private balcony. All the room categories offer a picturesque view of the Taj Mahal. The rooms feature Burma Teak flooring, teak armoires and spacious marble bathrooms with both a bathtub and a separate shower cubicle. Each of the suites has a separate living room and bedroom. The Kohinoor suite and the Luxury suites, located on the highest floor of the resort, have a private open air terrace with a view of the landscaped gardens and the beautiful Taj Mahal.
For a special treat, we can organise a private dinner on the balcony of your room which will be decorated with candles. With moonlight views of the Taj Mahal, it doesn't get any more romantic than this. It is also worth noting that the pricing policy of Oberoi hotels reduces the per night cost, the more Oberoi nights are included in your itinerary. There are Oberoi hotels in all major locations in India so please do let us know if you would like us to base your India tour on Oberoi properties.
A stay at The Oberoi Amarvilas is a truly unforgettable experience and will no doubt be a highlight of your trip to India.
