The Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra

Home to the Taj Mahal (one of the Seven Wonders of the World, arguably one of India’s top attractions), the city of Agra in Uttar Pradesh is known for its historical heritage, cultural mystique, romance, folklore and charm.

Home not just to the Taj Mahal but also to such attractions as the ancient city of Fatehpur Sikri (the old capital of the Mughal Empire), the majestic Agra Fort, Mughali gastronomical delights and grand old bazaars, Agra transports you back to a bygone era of old-world Hindustan of legends.

These reasons make Agra one of the most visited cities in the north of the country (along with Delhi, Jaipur and Varanasi). It is also an integral part of the Golden Triangle Tourist Circuit which comprises Delhi, Jaipur and Agra.

No visit of yours to India is complete if you fail to get a glimpse of the Taj Mahal — the eternal ode to undying love. The Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore described it as “a teardrop on the cheek of eternity.”

No other place in Agra gives you quite the Taj Mahal experience as the marvellous Oberoi Amravilas.

Located right across the Taj Mahal a mere 500 meters away, this iconic hotel gives you exclusive views of the Taj from its rooms and terraces.

Interesting Facts About The Oberoi Amarvilas

The Moorish-Mogul design of the hotel with facades of arches, sandstone columns, carved fountains, reflecting pools and colonnaded courts is inspired by…—you probably guessed it—the Taj Mahal!

Its premises have 64 stone fountains that replicate the fountains in front of the Taj Mahal.

Our Opinion : We think that the Oberoi Amarvilas is hands-down the best hotel in Agra. Not only do you get exclusive unhindered views of the Taj Mahal from your hotel room, but also feel the Taj-inspired aura with its Mughal-inspired architecture, reflecting pools, terraced lawns, landscaped gardens and orchards.

Amenities at the Amarvilas include a large outdoor swimming pool, various dining options (including the quintessential Mughlai cuisine), a fitness centre, and a spa.

Picture your-(Shahjahan)-self with your Mumtaz on a candle-lit dinner date on a full moon night on the terrace of the Oberoi Amarvilas with the Taj Mahal shimmering like a white pearl in the moon and artificial light.
