THE OBEROI AMARVILAS, AGRA

The Oberoi Amarvilas enjoys an unrivalled position, just 600 metres from the iconic Taj Mahal. Each of our rooms affords uninterrupted views of this ancient monument to love, while elements of the layout and design pay homage to its Mughal splendour.

The hotel is approached along a sweeping driveway, verdant with native trees and lit by flaming torches. Just inside, a Mughal style quadrant is ornamented with cascading fountains and framed by an arched passageway and gold leaf frescoes.

By day, guests can travel in our private golf buggies to the Taj Mahal. At night, they can savour a candlelit dinner beside its soft silhouette.

DINING

  • Bellevue

  • Esphahan

  • The Bar

  • The Lounge

Bellevue

Our bright, airy Bellevue restaurant is uniquely decorated with dazzling bevelled glass panels that divide intimate tables and long sofa seating. During the day, wall to wall windows afford views of the picturesque garden and terraces. Guest may savour pan Indian and continental cuisine in the fresh ambience.

Esphahan

Esphahan is  a demure restaurant with intimately arranged candlelit tables. Secreted behind carved wooden door panels and adorned with dramatic sandstone and marble stacked pillars, guests can enjoy live traditional music while savouring marinated kebabs and soft Indian flat bread.

The Bar

Behind the bar, a large oil canvas depicts the Taj Mahal as seen from above. Looking out of the windows, guests can see the Taj Mahal itself and relax on the oversized silk sofa or sit on a stool at the bar and take in the view while sipping on an aperitif, single malt, champagne cocktail or a signature iced tea.

The Lounge

Our lounge sparkles under the crystal chandelier which hangs from the central golden domed ceiling, while antique figurines stand majestically on gold fretwork shelves set into mirrors. Guests may take a seat inside with a tea or coffee, or step out of the glass doors onto the terrace for an even better view of the Taj Mahal.
