With plenty of open spaces, excellent business facilities, immersive experiences, warm hospitality, and bespoke culinary experiences, each hotel is designed to offer an unforgettable experience. Add to it abundant privacy, and the perfect combination of luxury and relaxation is guaranteed.
Inspired by Mughal architecture, the newly renovated property radiates sheer opulence. Located just 600 metres away from the iconic Taj Mahal, The Oberoi Amarvilas promises utmost relaxation at its terraced lawns, reflection pools, and sun-kissed balconies that offer uninterrupted views of the legendary monument.
Spread across 32 acres of landscaped gardens, The Oberoi Rajvilas brings princely opulence to the fore. Replete with traditional architecture, reflecting pools, marble bathrooms, and private gardens–the spacious accommodations here assure maximum privacy.
When at The Oberoi Udaivilās, the essence of palatial living heightens. Spread across 50 acres of greens on the banks of Lake Pichola, this hotel sheds the spotlight on its various courtyards, walkways, fountains and gardens. While the guest rooms at The Oberoi Udaivilas boast of beautiful views of Lake Pichola, the alfresco restaurants celebrate traditional Rajasthani (at Chandni), Indian (at Udaimahal) and international cuisines (at Suryamahal)—serving as the perfect base to kickstart tours of the historical Mewar region. Sunlit corridors, floor-to-ceiling glass panelled doors and cascading stairways round the regal ambience.
Surrounded by 8,000 acres of protected forests at the foothills of the Himalayas, The Oberoi Sukhvilas Spa Resort, New Chandigarh stems away from the hustle-bustle of the city to provide tranquillity in abundance. When here, expect spacious accommodations in villas or luxury tents; Mughal-inspired design aesthetic in every corner; and scrumptious seasonal dishes or authentic Punjabi delicacies, handcrafted by Oberoi chefs.
A sanctuary of peace and quiet, Wildflower Hall is ideal for folks who love the mountains. Located 8,250 feet above sea level and shadowed by the picturesque Himalayas, this five-star property brings the outdoors, indoors. Think whiffs of cedar forests permeating through the premises, teak wooden floors and Victorian elements adorning the spaces, garden and valley views from every corner of the hotel, and exquisite cuisines at the terrace of The Restaurant.
Another hilltop property, The Oberoi Cecil is dubbed a ‘Heritage Grand Hotel’ with classic layouts and valley views. Dating back to over a century, this legacy accommodation fuses modern comforts and luxuries with the city’s authentic allure. When here, savour the best of international, Indian and local Himachali specialities.
