Amarvilas Luxury Hotel in Agra
The Oberoi Amarvilas is the only hotel with direct, uninterrupted views of the Taj Mahal. The hotel lies just 600 metres from what is one of the most beautiful buildings in the world. The Oberoi Armavilas opened in January 2001 and is breathtakingly luxurious hotel. There is only one way to truly experience the Taj Mahal.
The challenge for Bombay-based architect Prabhat Patki was to create a haven that would reflect the exotic grandeur of the monuments around them. The aim was to provide guests with every modern service in luxury and comfort, while adhering to strict planning laws.
He succeeded. Straight out of an Indian fairytale, The Oberoi Amarvilas - Sanskrit for 'Eternal Haven' - is set among lush and serene Mughal-inspired pools and terraced gardens. Ancient and traditional Persian and Moorish influences combine with the very best in modern Indian interior design.
This fusion is exhibited to spectacular effect in the cobalt blue and gold domed entrance hall, whose windows frame a fabulous vista of the Taj Mahal. Sixty-four fountains, filigreed stone bridges and pillars greet guests as they cross the torch-lit forecourt of the ceremonial entrance pavilion of what appears to be a Mughal palace
Remarkably, all 105 bedrooms and all the suites enjoy uninterrupted breathtaking views of the Taj Mahal.
