R Hughes

"This is THE place to stay if visiting the Taj Mahal. Our room, as all of them do at Amarvilas, had a great view of the Taj Mahal, and it was so convenient to be so close. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and we were treated to flowers, special turndown service including rose petals in bath and at dinner a special anniversary cake. I have a severe food allergy and Head Chef made it his business to cook personally for me. My husband was totally impressed. Bar staff were very friendly, efficient and genuine with their service. Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough."

David Houghton
"This was probably the best hotel we have stayed at anywhere in the world. It was comforable the standard of cleanliness was second to none. The food was varied and good, the pool great and the view of the Taj from the balcony was stunning. The staff were kind and thoughtful."
Jim Macpherson

Doctor Colleen Ross
"This was a real treat for us. All elements of the stay were amazing and celebrating my mother's 80th Birthday there was fantastic. They even spontaneously provided a Birthday cake."
