Oberoi Amarvilas: a window onto the Taj Mahal

There’s nowhere else in Agra where you can enjoy such exclusive views of the Taj Mahal from your hotel…

By Sunil Sharma
Deputy Vice President of The Oberoi Group

Stay at the opulent Oberoi Amarvilas for supreme views of the Taj Mahal. We’re located in a green belt just 600 metres from this world-famous monument to love, making us the closest hotel to the Taj in the whole of Agra. Almost every window in the hotel showcases unobstructed views of this UNESCO-listed landmark, whether you’re dining in the restaurant, relaxing with a drink in the bar or sat on your balcony. There’s nowhere else in Agra where you can enjoy such exclusive views – I’ve seen guests arrive and tear-up when they get that first glimpse of the Taj Mahal.

The Oberoi is a five-star luxury resort inspired by Moorish and grand Mughal palace architecture with white columns and crystal chandeliers. Our 102 rooms and suites are decorated with Burmese teak and hand-woven fabrics. Outside, in our manicured grounds, you can stroll among fountains, reflection pools and pavilions. Most guests like to relax by the pool after a trip to the Taj Mahal. Of course, we’re also known for our incredible Oberoi service, which includes a 24-hour butler and mix of eastern, western and Ayurvedic treatments in our spa.

Dine at one of our two restaurants – the Bellevue has a golden-domed roof and serves a fusion of Thai, Indian, Indonesian and Lebanese cuisine whilst Esphahan is the place to go for Indian fine dining, with a menu inspired by the food of the Mughal Emperors. Guests love watching the sunset over the Taj Mahal with a cocktail on the bar patio, often accompanied by traditional evening dance performances. If you’re looking for something different, we can also arrange authentic cooking demonstrations or set up private dining experiences on a terrace.
