The Oyster Box Hotel in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

July 21, 2011 by

Standing grandly on Umhlanga’s celebrated beachfront on the eastern seaboard of KwaZulu-Natal, with all-encompassing views of the Indian Ocean and direct beach access, the Oyster Box Hotel is one of South Africa’s most renowned hotels.
From the moment the Oyster Box opened its doors in 1947 the hotel quickly became one of Africa’s best loved and most illustrious hotels. The combination of colonial charm, flawless service, flourishing tropical gardens and magnificent seaside setting swiftly gained it a reputation that was famous the world over.

Guests are welcome to discover and enjoy the many facilities the hotel has to offer. Stay in one of their 86 luxurious rooms and suites; escape to the privacy of the resident-only Clock Library to read one of the many volumes or write; dine in one of six venues, offering fine-dining and more casual options; relax around the Infinity pool, overlooking the ocean or indulge in the world-class Spa.


The Oyster Box Hotel has 86 diverse types of lavish rooms, suites and villas to choose from. The Oyster Box can accommodate the various individual needs of every type of visitor. Carefully renovated, each room is beautifully designed to provide the highest comfort and style. All of the colonial charm has been tenderly preserved: the exquisite tiles, murals, paintings and antique furnishings have all been kept in their unique glory. The décor also makes excellent use of natural stone and timber, complemented by calming colors that reflect the gentle shades of the nearby ocean and tropical vegetation.


Whether enjoying sundowners while watching the thrilling waves of the Indian Ocean in the distance at the Lighthouse Bar, casual dining with friend at the Ocean Terraces, fine dining with that special someone at the Grill Room, or sinking into a comfortable armchair and swapping stories over a cold beer with a mate in the Chukka Bar, culinary experience of the Oyster Box Hotel is one which justly celebrates the palate.

Vigilantly crafted to meet the wishes and whims of guests from across the nation and world, the Oyster Box is proud to offer tasteful, ethnically inspired menus perfect for guests seeking anything from special fine dining occasions to simple, relaxed meals or just a small bite.


Whether you choose to stay in or venture further out, the hotel is suitably situated for easy access to the Umhlanga Village; the Durban city center (a 15-minute drive). Excellent shopping centers and casino/ entertainment complexes and numerous renowned golf courses and sports facilities, including the spectacular Moses Mabhida Stadium, are all within reach. Guests are invited to visit one of the many local attractions such as uShaka Marine World, the Midlands & historical Battlefields, the Drakensberg mountains or one of the province’s game reserves or protected areas.
The Oyster Box, like its celebrated lighthouse, once again acts as a guiding light of outstanding hospitality, lavish accommodation and personal service unrivaled in all Africa and the world at large.
