Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra

India

Indulgent Mughal-inspired accommodation and unparalleled views of the Taj Mahal.

There aren’t many hotels where you can wake up to one of the Seven Wonders of the World. At the Oberoi Amarvilas you can do just that – it’s the only hotel in Agra with uninterrupted views of the Taj Mahal from every room.

As you step into the gold domed entrance hall, the windows frame a glorious silhouette of the Taj’s iconic, instantly recognisable outline. The views are astonishing throughout. Not least from the immaculate gardens, which are dotted with numerous fountains and reflection pools against the backdrop of the world’s largest monument to love.

Rooms are richly decorated in Mughal fashion, with antique furniture and Indian fabrics adorning the walls. Marble bathrooms only add to the sense of opulent indulgence. We recommend picking a room with a balcony, where your personal butler can serve you a private candlelit dinner against the shadow of the Taj.

Hop in one of the hotel’s complimentary golf buggy transfers to the Taj Mahal for a closer look at this mausoleum masterpiece. Explore nearby Mughal temples, forts and palaces like the marble Itmad-Ud-Daulah, often called the ‘baby Taj’ and considered by many to be its inspiration.

Once you’ve finished sightseeing, the hotel’s secluded location provides the perfect respite from busy Agra. Unwind with a dip in the pool, pamper yourself in the spa, then try the dome-roofed steam room. Or, head up to the fourth floor and treat yourself to a massage with a timeless Taj view.

Location

Delhi's Indira Gandhi international and domestic airport terminals are the closest to Agra. From here, we recommend taking the train, or a private transfer, both take approximately 3 hours.
