Visiting the taj mahal

A travel blog entry by dasandyas


today flat stanley had a long, boring car journey before arriving at Agra and visiting the Taj mahal. This was a tomb built by Shah Jehan, the mughal emperor, for his beloved wife, mumtaz mahal, who died in childbirth. it is very beautiful and about 400 years old. it is made from marble and precious stones and people come from all over the world to visit.

Taj Mahal

A travel blog entry by kverhey


Friday the 7th we started the last leg of our journey to the city of Agra, southeast of Delhi. We arrived after sunset to the luxurious Oberoi Amarvilas. The Oberoi is the closest hotel to the Taj Mahal and all rooms have a view of it. After a long travel day - Agra is a four hour drive from Delhi, we enjoyed massages and an early evening. …

Indian Train to Hotel Paradise

A travel blog entry by gr8escape


(S) I write this as we ride the Indian rails to Agra. We are rolling through the country-side now, with people out in the fields, harvesting what looks like wheat, by hand. Others are tending to their small herds of cows. It is about 107 degrees outside and we are in our tiny, but cool train car. Not all is perfect. We have also rolled by absolute …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Oberoi Amarvilas Agra



    Delightful, spacious room with a truly unforgettable view of the Taj Mahal. Lovely public areas, excellent service and food and one of the most beautiful hotel pools I have ever seen. Very efficient and comfortable arrangements for transporting guests to the Taj Mahal.

    Definitely worth the expense


    Everything about this hotel is fantastic. The grounds, the common areas, the pool and the rooms. Also, the view of the Taj Mahal is amazing. I understood that the hotel was close to the Taj, but I was surprised how close it actually is (it is much closer than it appears in the pictures posted on the hotel website). Every room has an incredible view of the Taj, and the rooms with a balcony are best.

    The Only Place to Stay in Agra(vation)!


    OK its a bit pricey but this hotel really is THE place to stay in Agra.

    Adorable Amarvilas


    We stayed in January as part of a tour in a terrace room overlooking the Taj it was amazing there is nothing to fault whatsoever!

    The view of the Taj at dusk is spectacular, the pool is unbelievable, the indian restaurant is to die for,a total experience AAAAAAAAAAAA+

    Probably one of the best hotels in the world second to the Peninsula in Hong Kong

    Perfect place to stay


    This hotel was the best hotel I have ever stayed at. The Oberoi group really knows how to do luxury right - immaculate grounds, the most perfect location in Agra, wonderful staff, and the great "no-tipping" policy where you give your tip in one lump sum at the end of the stay, make it a relaxing place to stay in a hectic country.

    Great Hotel with Great Restaurants


    We spent 2 nights here in February 2005. As this was our first destination in India, we needed a quiet, luxurious place to recover from our flight and the 4 hour drive from Delhi to Agra. The Amarvilas fit the bill well. We had a very spacious room with a deck overlooking the pool and the Taj Mahal in the distance. The bathroom was also quite large. There are two restaurants at Amarvilas - one continental and one Indian. A huge breakfast buffet, included in our rate was served in the continental restaurant. We had dinner in both restaurants - we ordered the excellent vegetarian thalis on both occassions. There was entertainment in the Indian restaurant as well as out by the pool at dusk. Service was flawless from arrival to departure. In all a wonderful experience.

    Great Hotel. Great Location


    My wife and I stayed at the Oberoi Amarvilas for one night in January 2003 on our way to the Taj Mahal. The hotel is palatial, the service fantastic and I got a sense that the staff took real pride in their hotel and serving their customers. We arrived in the late morning and was quite hungry. Breakfast had finished but the staff made us breakfast anyway which was delicious. Rooms are fantastic with great views of the Taj. Well worth building into your itinery if you're planning a visit to Agra.



    Arrival at the villas is part of the experience . The space allocated for fountains and columns is vast, the lobby - worth a photograph itself. In so many ways it vies to be a tourist atrraction in its own right - you quickly feel you are in your own palace and tourists should be visiting you! The staff here know the difference between service and obsequiousness - they are confident - happy and seem to take a real delight in the hotel and the looks on the faces of guests.

    The only place to stay in Agra


    If you can afford it, this is by far the best, dare I say it, the 'only' option in Agra. The hotel is absolutely stunning with a location that you can only dream of - every room in the hotel has unspoilt views of the Taj Mahal surrounded by a carpet of trees. This is not just the usual marketing hype - I cannot stress how good the views really are, and include your bedroom, spa and communal rooms.

    Deluxe hotel with a stunning view on the Taj Mahal


    This hotel was extremely luxurious. The room was very spacious, comfortable and well appointed. The staff was very nice and professional.

    Our room had a stunning view on the Taj Mahal.
