Description

A four bedroom Bed and Breakfast in Agra beckons the romantic spirit, the roadside wanderlust, the spiritual seekers and the love worshippers. It stands amidst landscaped gardens and just 15 minutes drive from the monument of love, The Taj Mahal. This luxurious homestay is part of a mansion which has a swimming pool for guests, and yet the guest area is separated in every possible way from the homeowner’s living spaces, giving a sense of privacy. You can enjoy and be surrounded by peace as the cacophony of busy tourists and its related paraphernalia will not reach you, within the oasis that awaits.

This Agra home stay is situated in the cantonment area adjoining the Taj Mahal area. One bedroom is a suite with attached bathroom that can accommodate four adults, is special needs friendly, and its interiors capture the imagination with its subtle charm. The other three double bedrooms come with attached bathrooms and sitting areas. The bedrooms are designed to ensure that each guest feels at home and yet experiences the luxuries of a hotel. Free Wi-Fi, a dining room with cooked meal facilities and a fully equipped kitchen for the use of guests completes the home stay.

Food served at this B&B in Agra caters to different taste buds and fares. Though breakfast is included in the room tariff, you will be required to inform your host about your lunch and dinner plans at least six hours in advance. The upside is that you will get dishes that are freshly prepared and they can be adjusted to suit any particular tastes. The owners are always on hand to guide you about the forts and monuments that you can visit. Don’t forget to take their advice on the areas where you can go for some amazing shopping in this city.

Come to this Indian Home Stay for a short get away from your city to enjoy fruit trees, chirping birds, a swimming pool with its cool waters, squirrels running amok in the landscaped gardens and peaceful sit out areas that will give rise to feelings of love and grandeur.

How to Reach

Air : It is only 30 minutes' hop from Delhi. The 'Kheria' airport is only 6km away from the city center. National and other private airlines connect Agra to Delhi, Khajuraho and Varanasi.

Rail : Agra's railway station is Agra Cantonment. There are excellent train services from New Delhi. Shatabdi Express, Palace on Wheels, Taj Express and Inter-city Express from Delhi takes 2-3 hours to reach Agra.

Road :The six-lane Expressway not only cuts down the distance between Delhi and Agra from the earlier 210 km to 165 km but also reduces the travelling time to two hours. Earlier, it used to take at least five hours to reach Agra, and that too if we were lucky not to get stuck in a traffic jam.
