Posted on January 6, 2011 | HotelsNo Comment

Agra is known for the most celebrated monument of love that is best seen in private at The Oberoi Amarvilas. Recognized amongst the prominent resorts on the planet, this luxury hotel is just at a distance of 600 meters from Taj Mahal. No matter which room or suite you choose, you are bound to be soaked in the breathtaking vista of this white wonder. Wake up facing the splendid sight of the spectacular structure bathed by the initial sun rays, gaze at its shine during the day as the sun beams lights its architectural excellence, marvel live at the this love abode in evening, and sweep away by the magic of Taj moonlight at night.

Boasting a shimmering blend of Moorish and Mughal architecture, Oberoi Amarvillas is a glorious showcase of reflection pools, fountains, terraced lawns, and rich pavilions taking you into the classical lifestyle of the Emperors. The richly detailed interiors, international as well as Indian cuisine, recreational activities for recharging yourself, Yoga sessions, and Spa offer a holistic aura and resting interlude to its guests.
