Oberoi Amarvilas, India

Posted On March 24, 2011 

India is proud to have one of the most premier luxury resort called Oberoi Amarvilas in Agra, the city of the incredible Taj Mahal! If you are fond of this great monument, I would recommend living this time in this resort as you enjoy its shimmering vistas of this monument right from your elegant room throughout the day. Thanks to the location of the Oberoi Amarvilas that is only 600 m away from the Taj Mahal.

This resort not only offers 24-hour views of the monument, but also boasts thoroughly selected rooms or suites. Even the arrangement of these rooms as well as suites add to the joy of viewing the white wonder since sun-lit morning to moon-lit  night. So, you are greeted by this sun-lit Taj wonder when you wake up, when you have tea in your room in the afternoon, and when you simply stand at the window at night to marvel at its moon-lit as well as manually lit architectural excellence.

Not only the Taj Mahal, but Oberoi Amarvilas boasts a beautiful mix of the Mughal and Moorish architecture rendering it as a majestic engineering feat. To this visually striking appearance add the tranquility as well as richness of recreational facilities such as reflection pools, rich pavilions, Yoga sessions, Spa, Indian cuisine, terraced lawns, and splattering fountains all offering the classical royal life experience. I would recommend a stay of a minimum three nights for easy excursion to the nearby Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri – the World Heritage Sites.


In this Taj facing hotel, you can expect Deluxe suites that feature a bedroom, living room, and the views of the gardens and the Taj Mahal; Luxury suites on the top (5th) floor with two terraces, entrance hall, living rooms, private pantry, four poster bed, washroom, and a generous bedroom adorned with sandstone flooring as well as Burma Teakwood; and Premier Room with twin beds. On the same floor, in the center, the Kohinoor Suite features all the amenities of the Luxury suites, but also provides bidet, luxury toiletries, granite bathrooms, vanity counters, and water closet.

Irrespective of which you choose, the Oberoi Amarvilas ensures that all the suites or rooms have:

• Telephone  • AC  • Hairdryer  • Satellite TV  • Internet  • Safe • DVD player  • Tea & coffee maker  • Ayurvedic toiletries  • Bathroom

Among the room types, besides the Luxury and Deluxe, there exist Kohinoor, Premier (Standard), and Premier with Balcony. And yes, you can also avail of a non-smoking room if you have kids with you.


• 24 hours room service, concierge, personal butler service, business centre, and laundry services • Valet  • Baby sitting  • Travel desk  • Restaurants  • Wireless Internet  • Banking  • Retail arcade  • Complimentary transport to/from the airport and railway station

The Oberoi spa is where you revive your senses via the outstanding customs as well as therapies whose roots have come from the old Indian traditions emphasizing on healing as well as health with now mixed international rituals.


There are two restaurants at the Oberoi Amarvilas, which are No.1 in preparing as well as serving a grand international cuisine, especially the authentic Indian dishes. At the Bellevue that is the main one, you enjoy all three meals with Indian or globally favorite dishes. The other one is Esphahan, a special Indian eatery, for a dinner in any of the two seatings: 7:00 pm and 9:30 pm with prior reservation.
