In “Rude Travel: A celebration of love”, Mr. Vir Sanghvi highlights that “There are few things in life that are more relaxing than lying in a bathtub and staring at the Taj Mahal. A fortnight ago as Covid cases mounted in Delhi, my wife and I drove for two and a half hours to Agra’s The Oberoi Amarvilas, the one hotel where every room has a view of the Taj. The view from our room was not just stunning but it was almost impossible to escape. The bathroom had glass windows that let you gaze at the monument. We ate breakfast every morning overlooking a garden, beyond which the Taj loomed in all its majesty and beauty. And yes, there is no better view to wake up to each morning than the Taj Mahal.”
Mr. Sanghvi further emphasis that “I hadn’t realised before that the colour of the Taj subtly changes every hour as the sun shifts in the sky. And Amarvilas is so near the Taj that you often feel that they are two buildings in the same compound, separated only by a garden. I always say that Vilas holidays are worth saving up for. But at Amarvilas, its not just the splendour of the hotel. It is also the sense that you are getting a close-up view of India’s glorious heritage. Go there with someone you care for. The Taj is, after all, about love..”
