Sodha Travel's Favorite Features at Oberoi Hotels and Resorts

Allison Sodha

The Sodha Travel team has spent thousands of hours touring, viewing, and inspecting hotels in South Asia. We believe accommodations are more than a place to rest your head; they are an essential element of experiencing a destination. Although there are several luxury brands offering premium services, we are often drawn back to Oberoi. There is a simple elegance, not an ostentatious display. The hospitality is authentic and not forced. Oberoi also considers travelers of all ages, an often overlooked detail in luxury hotels.

The founder of Oberoi Hotels, Mr. M.S. Oberoi, had a fairly straightforward code of conduct: No effort is too big, no detail too small. The Oberoi Group also established a training center in hospitality management, considered one of the best in Asia. Perhaps this is why the guest experience triumphs across their 30+ properties and cruisers. Not surprisingly, Oberoi holds an impressive list of awards and accolades that include the #1, #2, and #3 hotels in India, Top Hotel in Asia, and Best Hotel Group.

So let's talk specifics. What exactly sets Oberoi apart from other luxury brands? Here are 10 of our favorite features at Oberoi Hotels and Resorts:

The View / Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra: The only hotel in Agra to offer unobstructed views of the Taj Mahal from all rooms
