The Detail

For those looking for the best option in Agra, The Oberoi Amarvilas is the definitive luxurious choice. All rooms overlook the Taj which is just 600 metres from the hotel, many with your own terrace from where you can kick-back and marvel at the mighty grandeur of the Taj.  The Oberoi group did not hold back when designing Amarvilas, expect to find extensive use of marble and colonnaded courts, a gorgeous pool and elegance around every corner. As with all Oberois, the staff are exceptional, always there when you need them. There are 102 rooms at The Oberoi Amarvilas, all offering a classic and rich design, using dark teak flooring set against earthy and elegant rich fixtures and fittings. We suggest opting for a Premier Room with Balcony, giving you the chance to sit down and just look out at the Taj. The Suites offer more space, the pick of which are the two luxury suites at either end of the hotel offering the best views, and even bathrooms with a view of the Taj. The restaurants are excellent; enjoy a sunset drink overlooking the Taj in the Bellevie Terrace before heading to Espaham for dinner.
