Bathroom – I fell in love with both the bathroom designs as well as the materials used in all of the Oberoi hotels, they were simply stunning. But the bathroom at the Amarvilas was one of my favorites, with stunning shades of aqua, peacock motifs and gorgeous marble, it made getting ready in the morning that much better!
Design – One thing I love about the Oberoi hotel brand is their ability to have each hotel unique in design, yet all stay similar in overall feel. Each hotel is designed to match its local settings, so this hotel displayed lots of carving, teak wood floors and furniture and gorgeous shades of teal, browns and tans. The aesthetic felt “regal” as it should, standing up to the stunning and most regal neighbor of the Taj Mahal.
Dining – We had both breakfast here (which was lovely) as well as a nice dinner our first night there. We ate at one of the hotel’s two restaurants and could not have asked for more. I had Italian, Nick had Indian and our meals were delightful.
Overall Impressions – Our upgrade to the Oberoi Amarvilas was such a shock but such a wonderful memory. We had originally planned on going out that afternoon after arrival to find some good shots of the Taj Mahal from across the river, though as it turned out the storm would have prohibited us from doing that anyways and we ended up spending the afternoon in our lovely room, taking photos through the windows of the monument. It ended up working out so perfectly and I couldn’t have asked for a better hotel experience in Agra.
