What Indian honeymoon is complete without paying homage to the Taj Mahal? To get up close in style, book yourself into the Oberoi Amarvilas, where every one of its opulent rooms and suites has a view of this ultimate monument to love.

Built in the same Mungal style as its elegant neighbour, interiors are equally palatial with marble bathrooms, teak floors and hand-knotted carpets. Getting up to see the Taj shimmer at dawn isn't so painful when you're only a golf buggy ride away (although bear in mind when booking that the Taj is closed to visitors on Fridays).

Afterwards, head to the spa for a couple's Balinese massage, then have a candlelit dinner on your private balcony.

WOW FACTOR: Watch the sun set on the Taj from the bathtub of the Bollywood-tastic Kohinoor Suite.
