The Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra

Also amongst the Top 10 Luxury Hotels in India according to TripAdvisor 2010 Travelers’ Choice awards

TripAdvisor Review: “This property is more than just a nice hotel to stay at while you’re visiting Agra to see the Taj Mahal. It’s a whole another reason to visit Agra. My wife and I stayed here for two nights on a short anniversary getaway. The view has to be seen to be believed. The grounds are lush and immaculate. The aesthetic of the pool area is superb. The food is among the best we’ve had at any resort, and we’ve stayed at more than a few . The service is the best part: efficient, friendly, and extremely polite without being obsequious. The staff went out of their way to facilitate a balcony dinner for us, whipping up a beautiful romantic setting without being asked to, even calling in an electrician to make our raclette-maker work. There were several other instances of outstanding service during our short stay”.

Taj Rambagh Palace, Jaipur

Amongst the Top 10 Luxury Hotels in India, Hotels with Best Service and the winner of Overall Top 25 hotels in India according to TripAdvisor 2010 Travelers’ Choice awards

TripAdvisor Review: “It is an exquisite place, where every surface gleams and everyone has a smile for you. Our palace room was just a basic room tucked away in the former "women’s wing", it was absolutely delightful, spacious and complete with a golden canopy above the bed, mirrored fireplace and a window seat lined with a dozen or more gorgeous silk cushions. If you want to experience luxury and service and enjoy a romantic holiday at the same time, I highly recommend you experience it at the Rambagh Palace.”

Oberoi Rajvilas, Jaipur

TripAdvisor Review: “We stayed here for only 2 nights. I wish I had booked it for longer. All personal requirement is met by staff at any time at reasonable price. Check in was easy and our room was ready and waiting for us , and it lived up to it’s photos . The room was spacious with a small balcony, a small anti room with a safe & wardrobe and a good size washroom with toiletries and fresh towels . This was clearly the best hotel we stayed at. If we come back to Jaipur sometime again, we would certainly stay here.” said one TripAdvisor member
