I'm taking the opportunity to look back at what's sometimes overlooked: the unusual and interesting places we stay while visiting amazing destinations. This is the second of four Oberoi properties I stayed at while traveling in India.
Agra is most famous for the Taj Mahal. My first look at this testimony to undying love wasn't when I entered the site. It was when I entered my hotel room.
The Oberoi Amarvilas is located less than a half-mile away from the Taj Mahal. As I opened the window of my suite, I could see the monument in the distance. All the rooms of this five-star hotel offer unrestricted views of the Taj Mahal. But this view is only the beginning. The grounds feature fountains, terraced lawns, reflection pools, and pavilions.
From friendly service and fine dining to the glorious surroundings and view of the Taj Mahal, this is the perfect hotel to stay at while in Agra.
