The Oyster Box
THE OYSTER BOX – THE LEGEND…LIVES ON
Standing majestic on Umhlanga’s prestigious beachfront, with ocean views and direct beach access, the family-run Oyster Box is one of South Africa’s most luxurious and distinguished hotels.
The 86 individually-decorated rooms, suites and villas are equipped with the latest state-of-the-art amenities and facilities.
Renowned for its generous hospitality, passionate service and excellent cuisine, you can dine in one of six venues – from the casual ‘Ocean Terrace’, to the fine-dining ‘Grill Room’. The sunken ‘Wine Cellar’, is ideal for private, intimate occasions. The ‘Palm Court’, serves a lavish, traditional ‘High Tea’ daily. The rooftop ‘Lighthouse Bar’, with views of the iconic lighthouse and ocean, and the contemporary ‘Oyster Bar’, serving freshly plucked oysters, are two of Durban’s favourite ‘watering-holes’.
The luxurious Spa offers the widest range of wellness and beauty treatment options, including South Africa’s only authentic Turkish Hammam.
The Oyster Box is KZN’s premiere wedding and honeymoon destination and a popular venue for conferences, workshops and business travellers. A business centre, 24-seater cinema, valet and secure parking are available.
A number of significant sustainable tourism practices have been built into the classical architecture of the new hotel including efficient water and energy utilisation and waste treatment.
