Wonder and awe in the City of Ancient Emperors and Monuments at The Oberoi Amarvilas
Northern India is a lush and green place where it nears the Himalayas, and the waters from the great mountain valleys and the fields to the south make their way down to the wide Ganges River. The Yamuna River is one of these streams, a shallow flowing channel, and it links the cities of New Delhi and Agra together, before it joins the Ganges where the city of Allahabad stands. This is how the immense Ganges River basin unites so many cities of Indian into a single culture, and near the centre of this basin the city of Agra proudly wears the honours of its history as an ancient Mughal capital. This history includes the construction and maintenance of the world famous monument, tomb and temple to love known as the Taj Mahal. If you have ever wished to explore India, Agra will make a fine starting point, and in the south-eastern quadrant of the city, just a few hundred feet from the entry to the Taj Mahal, you will find the Oberoi Amarvilas, one of the leading luxury hotels in the region.
Like the ancient palaces of the great rajahs of old, the Amarvilas is a grand estate that includes fountains, pavilions, and gardens, and the rooms of the central facility, with arched windows open to the north, rise in tiers above each other to create the sense of an opulent palace. The Amarvilas features a set of private golf carts for trips to the Taj Mahal, and guests can enjoy a 24-metre-long swimming pool on the northeast pavilions of the estate. Your concierge will be happy to assist you in developing bespoken services for your itinerary as you explore the Taj, the city, and the beautiful region around Agra.

The Oberoi Amarvilas is a grand affair, offering 102 rooms to its guests, each of which features the finest in luxury amenities and furnishings.

The rooms are categorised into Deluxe Suites and Premier Rooms, with balcony views attached to an expense upgrade. There are several Luxury Suites available and the penthouse option is called the Kohinoor Suite. Banquets and weddings are frequently held in the lavish ballrooms of the Amarvilas, and the Oberoi Amarvilas Spa is well worth a visit, with a fitness centre and steam room available to all guests, and beauty and massage services available by bespoke arrangement.
Dining Like Royalty Above the Gardens of Amarvilas
The Oberoi Amarvilas, as you might expect, is able to offer four fine dining areas on its estate.

Near the centre of the estate, the Bar and the Lounge both offer excellent snacks and refreshments along with fine and unprepossessing cocktails. The nearby attractions of the Agra Fort can be explored with professional guides on a bespoke basis, and some guests derive tremendous satisfaction from exploring the Kinari Bazaar in downtown Agra. When you return to the hotel, you can relax as the Taj Mahal glows in the distance, and you rest in the lavish comforts of the Oberoi Amarvilas deluxe resort.
