Whenever someone plans a trip to Agra, it is certainly to visit The Majestic Taj Mahal and why not, it is one of the seven wonders of the world. Well while planning a trip to my city, the first concern is to get a hotel nearest to the Taj and what if I tell you that there is a property which gives you a Taj view from your room, the restaurant, the spa room and even from the pool?
Yes! you read it correctly. I am talking about the Hotel Radisson Agra which is just a few minutes away from the Taj Mahal and gives you the majestic view from almost everywhere.
I put up in Agra but recently went to the hotel Radisson for a staycation for the pre-birthday celebration of my son. It was my 2 days stay there and we had an amazing time. It was a very lavish, totally calm and relaxing and amazing staycation. Let’s start from the start.
I got a very warm welcome with the tilak and a refreshing kiwi juice as I entered the property followed by a special brownie in the room after check-in. So, I booked a room with the Taj View and it was totally worth it. It was a very lavish room equipped with all the required amenities and the majestic view of The Taj.
Room With The Taj Mahal View
After check-in, we had our lunch in the huge buffet area which had n number of dishes. We couldn’t even taste everything. Still, with our overate tummies we (me and my son) went to the room to relax and yeah the super comfortable bed took us into a deep sleep soon after.
The hotel has a beautiful bar named Henry’s which was our adda for the evening. While I was enjoying my favorite Bira White beer, Dew, my son was busy enjoying his favorite chicken snacks. He is a big-time foodie and if he liked the food at Radisson, I will say it is the best 🙂 Favorite beer, tasty snacks, lovely music and the lovely company of my son, what could I ask for. After some drinks, we had our dinner at the rooftop poolside restaurant again with some lovely music and beautiful weather.
The next morning we started our day with another tasty meal in our breakfast with the exquisite Taj Mahal view at the roof-top restaurant. Luckily the weather was so pleasant and the Taj Mahal looked even more beautiful.
Pool Time With a View of Taj Mahal
Our experienced at the pool in the hotel Radisson was again amazing as the water was super clean and the pool was very well maintained. The beautiful weather accompanied by the lovely music and the view of the Taj Mahal made it a perfect evening for us.
Spa in Hotel Radisson Agra
While the USP of this hotel is the view of the Taj Mahal from so many areas, for me, the highlight of my staycation was the massage I got at the spa center. They have a pretty spa center again with a view of the Taj Mahal, so yes, you can enjoy your amazing massage while gazing at the symbol of love.
So, talking about the massage, it was the best every massage I had. I opted for the pehelwaan massage which was just out of this world. Trust me I literally have no words to describe how good it was. The girl was so amazing with her mooves that I was totally relaxed and rejuvenated after the massage.
Overall, this staycation was one of my best ones to date. We enjoyed every single thing there, be it the luxurious room, delicious food, amazing bar, and drinks, super clean pool, spa and above all, the exquisite view of the Taj Mahal.
If you are planning a vacation to Agra and looking for the best property closest to The Taj Mahal, Radisson is the best choice. Even if you are from Agra and looking for a relaxing and rejuvenating vacation, I would highly recommend Radisson Agra.
