Hotel Description

Most visitors to Agra are here for one reason only; to see the Taj Mahal. Where better to stay, then, than Amarvilas, where every room has a spectacular view of the Taj, a mere six hundred meters away?

This hotel, the latest in the Oberoi group’s series of reconstructed palace hotels, faced a number of challenges; it had to be restrained enough in its elegance so as not to attempt to challenge the Taj Mahal itself, and more prosaically, it was limited to just three stories — the Taj remains the tallest structure in Agra.

In this task it succeeds; Amarvilas is splendid, yet never ostentatious. Even its grand entry hall, topped with a gold and cobalt blue domed ceiling, is merely a frame for the postcard-perfect view of the Taj Mahal, visible through the vast windows. Rooms are the patented Vilas blend of meticulous traditional craftsmanship and attention to detail with the best in modern hospitality design, with the eye drawn, as always, to the view. Some rooms have views of the Taj from private terraces, some from the exquisitely crafted king beds, others even from enormous freestanding bathtubs.

Ayurvedic, Thai and Western spa treatments are administered, naturally, with one eye on that famous view, and the restaurants and lounge are built around wide picture windows. This is something of a one-attraction town, and it’s a quiet, contemplative sort of place, perfect for honeymooners and stressed-out executives alike. But what an attraction it is; if you’re somehow not impressed by the prospect of soaking in a hot bath, viewing the Taj Mahal by the light of the moon, then there’s little hope for you.

Travel advisory: Passport and visa requirements differ from country to country. Please check with your local authority before booking.

How to get there:

The Oberoi Amarvilas is approximately a 25-minute drive from Agra's Kheria Airport. It takes approximately 45 minutes to fly from New Delhi to Kheria Airport. For guests who prefer to drive, the trip from New Delhi to Agra takes approximately four hours by car. Additionally, train service is available. The main railway station at Agra is the Agra Cantonment station. The journey takes approximately two hours from New Delhi by Shatabdi Express and three hours by Taj Express. From there, it’s a 20-minute drive to Amarvilas. Please contact customerservice@tablethotels.com to arrange transfers from Kheria Airport or Agra Cantonment train station.
