To be this close to the Taj Mahal would be a dream come true for many. This Unesco World Heritage site has captivated people for centuries; its magical pull pervades the atmosphere of Oberoi Amarvilas, certainly one of India’s best hotels. But it’s not just the views of the white-marble masterpiece that should bring you here: The service is outstanding, the spa treatments wonderfully blend East and West, and dining at Esphahan is not to be missed. In the Kohinoor Suite, the ode to the Taj Mahal continues: It can be seen through the windows, even from bed, as well as from its three private terraces, and the study even has a telescope so you can admire the details of the incredible Mughal monument and gardens. For the ultimate romantic evening, enjoy an alfresco dinner on your terrace with views of this enduring symbol of love in the distance.
