While you may not be able to splurge on international travel, live like a king at these luxurious hotel suites across India
SMITA TRIPATHI

THE PANDEMIC and the resulting lockdowns ensured that we were all stuck at home for a large part of the past year. However, things are better now and hotels are going out of their way to ensure the safety of their guests. While international travel is still restricted, we suggest you check into one of these luxurious suites in holiday destinations such as Agra, Jaipur, Udaipur, and Goa for the experience of a lifetime.

The Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra Kohinoor Suite

Imagine waking up and having a luxurious breakfast in bed while you feast your eyes on the Taj Mahal. Soak in the tub with a glass of wine as you admire the Taj. Move to the living room for high tea and continue to have the magnificent Taj right in front of your eyes. It is this constant view of the Taj Mahal from every nook and corner of the Kohinoor Suite at The Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra, that makes it unique, and also the suite of choice for the likes of Prince William and Kate Middleton, as well as former French President Nicolas Sarkozy and wife Carla Bruni. Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, too booked it on his visit to see the monument of love. The 275-sq.mt. the suite has a large living room, study, dining room, and a spacious bedroom (with attached bathroom), each offering unparalleled views of the Taj Mahal. There’s an interconnecting room option available (for families), as well as accommodation for accompanying valets and maids. You also get a private butler to look after all your needs round the clock. Our favorite part: a specially-positioned brass telescope in the study that provides stunning views of each architectural detail of the Taj.

The suite can be booked for ₹11 lakh per night plus taxes.
