Trident Agra
Agra

The little sister hotel of Oberoi Amarvilas and one of our favourites in Agra, Trident Agra is a charming boutique hotel, set amidst beautiful tropical gardens, just ten minutes’ drive away from the access point for entering the Taj Mahal by the East Gate.

Home to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Agra remains a popular choice when visiting India. Set in extensive grounds in a quiet neighbourhood, the two-storey hotel is built of local red stone, reminiscent of the Mughal era and designed around a pretty central courtyard, beautiful landscaped gardens with fountains and a swimming pool – the perfect spot to relax after a busy day exploring this fascinating city. The contemporary lobby, restaurant and bar bring the hotel into the 21st century, and there is also a small spa and fitness centre. The hotel comprises of 135 spotlessly clean and comfortable rooms with good quality modern furnishings, all of which have recently been refurbished so are feeling sleek and fresh.

There are a number of dining options to choose from, and the menu always extensive, including an Italian pizza oven and traditional Rajasthani curries, south Indian options for breakfast and Hyderabadi clay-pot biryanis. Lighter bites are served in the bar with refreshing cocktails.

The service at this hotel shines above all its competitors; the staff are incredibly kind and helpful, and the ever-present general manager runs a very happy ship. There is also a concierge desk which can organise sightseeing with local guides.

When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.

Client Testimonials

I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
- Anonymous, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.

I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!

Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
