The Oberoi Amarvilas

Delhi & Agra

Located just 600 metres from the Taj Mahal, the Oberoi Amarvilas is perfectly positioned as the closest hotel to the world’s greatest monument, and there is nowhere better for viewing this seventh wonder of the world than from the roof terrace at sunrise or sunset.

Built in a style inspired by Moorish and Mughal architecture, the resort is a splendid display of terraced lawns, fountains, reflection pools and pavilions with rich interiors that take you back to an era of Emperors and Princes. The 64 luxury rooms and suites all have a dramatic view of the Taj Mahal and are luxuriously furnished.

There are two restaurants to chose from, a spectacular terrace bar, and a huge swimming pool and spa.

The Oberoi spa offers an array of therapies, rituals and journeys and the sparkling colbalt-blue 23m swimming pool is wonderfully relaxing after a long day exploring all the sights and sounds of Agra.

Why we recommend The Oberoi Amarvilas

The proximity of The Oberoi Amarvilas to the Taj Mahal is incomparable. You can not only reach this magnificent monument with minimum fuss, but the hotel has been designed so that every room has an unobstructed view of it. There’s nothing better than seeing the sunset from the roof terrace, and it’s at this time that the property is at its most romantic due to the staff lighting the braziers.
