Room With A View: The Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra
Located 600 metres from the Taj Mahal, The Oberoi Amarvilas is a lesson in luxury, a Sultan’s Palace of opulent furnishings, rich design and spectacular views of one of the eight wonders of the world, the Taj Mahal.
Inspired by Moorish and Mughal architecture, The Oberoi Amarvilas resort boasts an array of terraced lawns, pools and luxurious fountains. Through a pathway of arches and surrounded by smooth mosaic marble is the hotel’s extravagant outdoor pool, where guests can swim through ornate arches in the glow of surrounding orange candle-like lighting.
The grandeur of the hotel’s leisure facilities continues into the spa, which offers a refreshing array of treatments for both mind, body and soul, inspired by ancient Indian traditions of health and healing.
The hotel’s main restaurant, Bellevue, offers a range of International and Indian cuisine, whilst the hotel’s speciality restaurant, Esphahan offers a menu of authentic Indian cuisine, accompanied by live music.
Whilst views of the Taj Mahal can be found from every bedroom in the hotel, in addition to the bar, lobby, spa and lounge, the opulent Kohinoor suite offers guests palatial accommodation with breathtaking scenery. Located on the top floor of The Oberoi Amarvilas, The Kohinoor suite covers 3,000 square feet, providing indulgent accommodation with its own foyer, living room, dining room, study, pantry, spacious marble bathrooms and two bedrooms. If this wasn’t enough, guests can enjoy majestic views of the Taj Mahal bathed in dusty pink hues at sunset from each of the suite’s three balconies.
