There is a saying that the world is divided into two parts; those who have seen the Taj Mahal and those who have not. Built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan as a monument to his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal, a visit to this iconic beautiful haunting monument is the premier experience for guests staying here. Rise early before dawn, take the electric buggy and enter the Taj Mahal as dawn is breaking. Wonder at her beauty as the sun rises and washes over her, changing the colour of the marble from pink to sparkling white. Make a return visit at dusk and be swept away by her magic in the moonlight.
Relax in the peaceful surroundings of Amarvilas, swim in the beautiful cobalt blue pool which is straight from fairy-tale pages of the Arabian nights. The Oberoi spa will take you on a journey of rejuvenation with its unmatched array of therapies designed to renew refresh and replenish the soul.
