If you have plenty of cash to throw around then why not a stay at the Oberoi amarvilas . A newly constructed hotel with stunning views of the Taj. Thier views mind, you need to be excellent as they charge around seven hundred Dollars a night ,plus twelve & half percent tax and if you still have small change left over, then their sister hotel in Mumbai will relieave you of that without problem.

Hotel Amarvilas Agra: For A Luxury Stay

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 10, 2008

I had booked Hotel Amarvilas, Agra for my quick visit to the city during the month of May and I was very much impressed with the spacious grounds, clean and comfortable rooms and brilliant services it offers. This time my visit to Agra was made in a haste and I didn’t got enough time to venture outside the hotel as all my meetings were scheduled in the hotel itself. Yet I was able to experience the traditional hospitality of the city through the efficient services provided by hotel staff at Hotel Amarvilas Agra.

The room was tidy and clean and was well spacious so I have perfectly no complaints about my stay their. The view from the room is also very beautiful that refreshes the entire ambience of the room once the curtains are pulled back. When I got some free time beside my official work I visited Spa where the ayurvedic treatments and milk bath completely chased away my fatigue caused by long hours of conferences.

The Oberoi Amarvilas: A Breathtaking View of Taj

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 7, 2008

The Oberoi Amarvilas is just the right place for all the lovers of the spectacular monument of Taj Mahal. From my room I had a private view of the Taj as this hotel is just a few meters away from it. Built in a style inspired by Moorish and Mughal architecture this hotel along with other features of the foregone era with terraced lawns, fountains and pavilions impressed me at the very first sight. Mine was Kohinoor Suite which was surely heavenly beauteous and had separate living and dining rooms.

This suite also has a private study and a bedroom which has a separate dressing area. Even my bathroom overlooks the stunningly beautiful monument of Taj Mahal. Just like all the other rooms in the hotel I was also provided butler service which gave me a complete princess like feeling in the regal city of Agra. I had all my meals at Esphahan which is a specialty Indian restaurant and I enjoy Indian cuisines the most.

Wonderful Hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

We splurged and stayed at the Oberoi Amar Vilas. Its a fantastic hotel with a view of the Taj from every room. I upgraded to a Executive room with the Balcony.

Its a wonderful hotel with fantastic service. The rooms have the standard of any international 5 star with execllent service. You have a personal butler service 24 hrs if you need anything.

Had one of the most comfortable pillows that I have ever used in a hotel.

Unique Quality: I should say the unique proxmity to the Taj Mahal and fantastic service at the hotel are excellent. Its also a fantastic hotel that is superbly manicured with water fountains all over the property.

The layout of the pool is also nice which is open 24 hrs.

Directions: Everyone know where this hotel is... its #1 in town.

Excellent faultless service, superb surroundings, fantastic views of the Taj Mahal and the mainly young staff are helpful , informed and attentive. The hotel arranged car and driver for transfer from Delhi and local sightseeing, a fantastic guide called Arif and a romantic Royal Thali dinner in the grounds attended by 2 staff for my birthday

Unique Quality: The views are unbelievable and leave you speechless. Every window frames the view of the Taj Mahal. Ask for a room on the higher floors - our was on the 4th and it was superb. We stayed 3 nights and were sorry to move on.

The Spa facilities were first rate and the suite has superb views. One of the most memorable parts of the holiday was enjoying the ever changing light on the Taj Mahal from the quiet of our hotel balcony

The Oberoi website offers pictures but none of them do justice to the views and surroundings

The grounds are spacious, the rooms lovely, the staff and service excellent, and the spa heavenly - 3 hours of treatments was topped off with a rose and milk bath for 2 in a room overlooking the Taj! The hotel organised everything for us including car transfer from its sister hotel in Delhi, guides and driver/car to take us to the various sites - wee hate being shepherded as part of a group. The hotel arranged a special dinner for my birthday - in the grounds under the stars, a romantically decorated table for 2 with a Royal Thali dinner cooked to own own taste (not too hot) and attended by 2 staff.
The whole stay was faultless and did not want to leave after our 3 mights were up.

Unique Quality: We saw the hotel on the Oberoi website and the views from the rooms were what drew us to the hotel - it was our honeymoon and my birthday whilst we were there. It is totally unbelievable and fantastic!
We were checked into the hotel in our room and as we walked inside we took one look out of the window and we were speechless - each arched window perfectly frames the uninterupted view of the Taj Mahal. It has the same effect on all guests. Each room has its own large balcony and every day we woud return from sightseeing to sit in our own private space admire the view and watch the effect of the changing light on the Taj Mahal. This is one of the outstanding memories of our holiday. We had a room on the 4th floor - the higher you are the better the view - so ask at check in.

The best view possible of the Taj Mahal from every room. You can see the Taj change colour as the sun rises and sets. This hotel is about location, location, location! The rooms are superb , the staff excellent, the pool is stunning ... it is a magnificent hotel.

Best hotel I stayed at in India, hands down. On par with any Banyan Tree hotel.
Best view over the Taj. Unbelievable service, much better than what I am used to in China where I live.

Taj View Luxury Hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 18, 2005

One of my great regrets about my recent trip to India was that we had only one night at this amazing hotel.

The Amarvilas is a luxurious, palatial hotel, with views of the Taj Mahal from every room.

While the grounds are not vast here, they are beautifully laid out. The rooms are lavishly appointed and you would come to Agra just to lounge in their sumptuous comfort. The colours of the decor were most unusual with a very vivid turquoise tamed by white. It set the tone it's meant to - rich, cool, and expensive.

The bathrooms are large with both a bath and a seperate spacious shower. One thing I love about the newer or newly renovated hotels these days is the amount of space given to showers. There is nothing worse than being cramped behind a plastic curtain hung over a bath as water trickles from a minute shower-head!! Amarvilas is a statement in bathrooms:-)

Outside, tiered terraces overlook the pool, and cooling waterfalls flow from tier to tier. As you lounge in the sun, jasmine tea is served by beautifully sari'd waitresses. There are covered poolside terraces, also, providing shade for a cool drink or delicious snack between swims or sunbathing.

There are two restaurants and we dined that evening in the international restaurant. The food was incredible - quite easily the best meal I ate in the course of my sixteen night trip. The staff are friendly, chatty, and helpful. I wore a special dress to dinner that evening and they complimented me - it made me feel great.

Unique Quality: The view of the Taj Mahal from every room of this amazing hotel cannot be beaten. No other Agra hotel shares this view.

Directions: In direct view of the Taj Mahal, a short ride away by golf cart.

Amazing AmarVilas

If you can afford it, this is the only way to do the Taj Mahal with complete style and luxury.

Every room of the hotel and the bar/lounge have an uninterrupted view of the Taj and the service and whole experience are everything you would expect of the Oberoi group.

Unique Quality: The pool wins our personal award list for 'Best Hotel Pool' and the hotel is a serious contender for the coveted 'Best Hotel' title.
