About The Oyster Box
The Oyster Box undoubtedly lives up to its claim of being one of South Africa’s most cherished hotel. Situated by the sea, it offers uninterrupted ocean views illuminated by the glint of the Umhlanga lighthouse. For those looking for hotels in Durban, The Oyster Box should be first on the list.
For most guests, the morning begins with a breakfast buffet of freshly shucked oysters and champagne. This is followed by a walk through the tropical gardens and sunbathing on iconic striped deckchairs by the ocean-side pool.
The afternoon includes a legendary High Tea in the sunny Palm Court and a luxurious Hammam shower at the spa. Early evening signals a signature Umhlanga Schling at the Oyster Bar, followed by sumptuous spice flavours at the famous Curry Buffet.
Almost all the rooms offer ocean views. Not only is this accommodation in Durban family-friendly, but it’s pet-friendly too, seeing pampered pets accommodated in the Garden Villas.
Why We Love The Oyster Box
- One of the most iconic photo op spots, guests can revel in capturing a postcard-perfect shot of the striped deckchairs, pool and lighthouse, framed by an azure sea.
