About Oberoi Amarvillas
The Oberoi Amarvilas enjoys an unrivalled position, just 600 metres from the iconic Taj Mahal. Each of the rooms affords uninterrupted views of this ancient monument, while the layouts and design of the rooms pay homage to its Mughal splendour.
The Oberoi Amarvilas is undoubtedly the hotel to stay in for a visit to Agra and the Taj Mahal. The Oberoi team have been meticulous in their attention to detail and the service they provide, from the architectural design right the way through to private dinners under the stars, next to the beautiful pool and beside the silhouette of the Taj Mahal itself. This is the kind of hotel that sticks out in one's memory, for all the right reasons.
Of course the biggest draw to the area is the Taj Mahal and The Oberoi's unparalleled location allows straightforward access in true luxury, however there are a number of other famous monuments close by that the hotel provides private excursions to as well. These include Akbar's impressive Red Fort, the atmospheric fortified city of Fatepur Sikri and the outstanding sandstone and marble tomb of Akbar.
With each room having an unobstructed view of the Taj Mahal, Oberoi Amarvilas really is in the perfect location to enable you to see this wonder of the world at its very best. It is just 600m from the Taj Mahal itself and a stones throw from the centre of Agra.
How to get there
Oberoi Amarvilas Agra is a 15-minute drive from the City Centre and a 20-minute drive from Agra Cantonment Station. Kheria Airport is 8.1 miles away.
