WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

History: Oberoi Amarvilas looks over one of the most famous monuments in history. The layout and design of the property recalls the grand Moorish and Mughal architecture of the middle ages.

Location: The Oberoi Amarvilas is only 600 meters from the Taj Mahal – a prime position for sightseeing, giving travelers the most advantageous position when visiting this unforgettable site.

Service: This award-winning property is where rock stars and dignitaries stay – every room and suite gets top-notch service from staff on the ground and a 24-hour butler.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

Located just 600 meters from the Taj Mahal, the Oberoi Amarvilas offers views of this romantic monument from each of its 109 guest rooms and suites, as well as the property’s lobby, bar and lounge. With a nod to Moorish and Mughal architecture, the resort features terraced lawns, fountains, reflection pools and pavilions with rich interiors. Room and suite amenities include a separate walk-in closet with electronic safe, lavish marble bathrooms with deluxe toiletries. The Amarvilas is also home to two restaurants, Bellevue and Esphahan, which serve fine international and Indian cuisine. Complementing the grandeur of the Mughal era is the spa that befits the self-indulgence of royalty, with holistic treatments based on Ayurveda and ancient Thai and western massage techniques, as well as beauty and body treatments. Other facilities include a swimming pool and a state-of-the-art gymnasium.
