DETAILED DESCRIPTION

The only Agra hotel to have uninterrupted views of the Taj Mahal from all its rooms, the Oberoi Amarvilas is less than 600 metres from the temple. By day, guests can take a private golf buggy to the ancient monument. At night, they can enjoy a candle-lit dinner beside its soft silhouette.

The hotel’s Mughal influence pays homage to its famous neighbour. There is a central quadrant, with cascading fountains, an arched passageway and gold-leaf frescoes. And each of its 95 rooms includes intricate arrangements of dark sandstone and white marble, with coin and fabric wall-hangings.

After working up an appetite in the health club and spa, guests can go one of two ways to eat. Head towards brightly lit Bellevue for continental and Indian classics. Or across the hallway to Esphahan, an Indian speciality restaurant with live traditional music and candle-lit dining.

WHAT WE LIKE ABOUT THE HOTEL

  1. Its views. A place of pilgrimage and wonder, the Taj Mahal is a World Heritage sight. But are its pavilions and pools more beautiful at sunrise or sunset? With a view from every guest room, you can debate that every day.
  2. Its setting.  The hotel is approached by a sweeping, tree-lined and torch-lit driveway. Its lush, verdant gardens are full of native flora and fauna and water bodies.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

ROOMS & SUITES

Total number of rooms: 95
Total number of suites: 7
Number of floors: 5

Wooden blinds decorated with hand-printed gold patterns cast an amber glow along the corridors to the rooms. This warm, welcoming tone continues inside, with sandstone and marble flooring and antique fabrics covering the walls. That said, the most striking aspect of all 95 rooms is the view. Every one looks straight across to the Taj Mahal. That means there are a myriad ways to see the monument. Premier and Deluxe Suites have soft silk armchairs for viewing, while larger rooms and suites include balconies. However, the exclusive Kohinoor Suite offers perhaps the most exquisite experience. Here wall-to-wall windows mean guests can walk the length of the suite and gain a different aspect from every room.
