Perfectly located, fabulous hotel with a luxurious feel and a high level of service.
The terraced heated pool area is stunning.
The hotel provides golf cars that drop you off near the Taj Mahal. We visited for sunrise and it was good but foggy. So when the sun came out we went back and enjoyed the contrast of the white marble and blue skies. We paid extra for these tickets but the premium tickets are only £7.50 each and well worth it for shorter queues. We bought these at the hotel where you are also given overshoes which means that you don't have to take your shoes off to walk on the Taj marble. Men and women are separated as you pass security so make sure you take your ticket with you.
I think we had the only room where the view of the Taj Mahal was obstructed by a tree (except from corner of balcony) - go for a room on a high floor and avoid room 124.
The Oberoi policy of 30 mins complimentary wifi a day was much appreciated.
Thank you to Trinetra for organising our trip.
Make sure you check out the seasonality of fog before booking your holiday as we didn't realise how badly northern India is effected by fog in the winter months. We were lucky that the fog lifted later in the day but travellers during the previous week saw little…
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Taj Mahal is extraordinary as much for what it is as how it has escaped the banality of cliché. For 350 years, this monument evokes a sense of wonder. Only by being there can you witness its true majesty, its symmetry, its setting and the delicacy of its carved marble inlaid with precious stones. Now just suppose you were to overlook it from your hotel room? The Oberoi Amarvilas is 600 metres from this tribute to love. The lavish interiors and elaborate gardens add to the serenity of the scene. The guestrooms are palatial: all have magical views and are luxuriously furnished with traditional fabrics, white marble, hand-crafted ornaments and every modern amenity. There is a luxury spa offering a range of therapies, a swimming pool where snacks and drinks are served; an ornamented ballroom and fine restaurants to suit the international palate. But the lobby lounge is a feast for the eye designed, as it was, around that glorious view of the Taj Mahal. ... more less
