The Oberoi Amarvilas

Situated in Agra and located only 600 metres from the Taj Mahal, The Oberoi Amarvilas is a quiet and peaceful haven set away from the bustle of the city. It has the best views of the Taj Mahal in Agra which offers guests the luxury of enjoying the beauty of this monument to love out of visiting hours. Built in a style inspired by Moorish and Moghul architecture, with terraced lawns, fountains and reflection pools it has rich interiors reminiscent of the era of Princes and Emperors

The Experience

There are two dining options at Amarvilas with Bellevue the main restaurant open for breakfast lunch and dinner featuring International and Indian cuisine. The speciality restaurant Esphahan, open for dinner serves exquisite traditional Indian cuisine.

There is a saying that the world is divided into two parts; those who have seen the Taj Mahal and those who have not. Built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan as a monument to his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal, a visit to this iconic beautiful haunting monument is the premier experience for guests staying here. Rise early before dawn, take the electric buggy and enter the Taj Mahal as dawn is breaking. Wonder at her beauty as the sun rises and washes over her, changing the colour of the marble from pink to sparkling white. Make a return visit at dusk and be swept away by her magic in the moonlight.

Relax in the peaceful surroundings of Amarvilas, swim in the beautiful cobalt blue pool which is straight from fairy-tale pages of the Arabian nights. The Oberoi spa will take you on a journey of rejuvenation with its unmatched array of therapies designed to renew refresh and replenish the soul.

An interlude at The Oberoi Amarvilas will be a truly memorable experience
