we spent part of our honeymoon here last month. we stayed at 4 oberoi properties on the trip, and this was by far our favourite. unlike the reviewer from camden, we had booked a premier room, and what do you know-they upgraded us to a suite!!! we had 3 nights of pure indulgence, and felt like royality. we had room service a couple of times-who wouldn't when you have your own dining room, and an outdoor dining pavillion next to your private pool. the food and service was exceptional. the chef came along too to make sure it was perfect.
we went to the spa one afternoon, and had multiple treatments. the therapists we would highly rate, very highly.
as for it being confusing and widely spaced out. yes to being spread out over beautiful gardens and pools, but confusing-don't think so...i wish we had gone to the taj lake palace just to compare, but honestly we couldn't have been more pleased with the oberoi in general. i can agree with some of the service complaints, but feel it is more of an oberoi thing rather than the specific hotel or staff. they make the service so complicated at times(as noted below re the coke)that is does become almost farcical in execution. they could simplify some of the serving procedures to be sure.
we would highly recommend this hotel to anyone-especially if you can bag a suite...
