A national treasure
South Africa’s most cherished hotel stands majestically on Umhlanga’s beachfront, overlooking the Indian Ocean & the iconic lighthouse.
Umhlanga Rocks, KwaZulu-Natal
Occupying a majestic location on the Umhlanga beachfront in KwaZulu-Natal province, The Oyster Box is one of South Africa’s most celebrated hotels, as famous for its remarkable coastal views as the understated luxury and gracious hospitality that have become the hallmarks of this cherished seaside destination.
Set just 15 minutes’ drive from King Shaka International Airport, The Oyster Box offers an array of individually decorated rooms and suites, an award-winning spa set amid tropical gardens, and a mouth-watering menu of restaurants and bars.
With South Africa’s Covid-19 recovery well underway, we are delighted to once again welcome international travellers back to The Oyster Box.
I have a family of my own and have the first-hand experience of travelling with young children. There is so much you need to think about and remember! The guest experience is always at the heart of our hotel where "No request is too large, no detail too small". I can personally ensure that you and your family are in the best of hands, and that we will do all we can to make this a memorable and special stay with us.
We appreciate that travelling as a family can be expensive, and young families don't always need an extra bedroom, which is why children under twelve years old can stay and dine with us for free when sharing a room with parents.
Our Reservations team will happily assist with organising a fully qualified in-house nanny service should you require it when booking your room, with our established partnership with The Hotel Nanny - the only premium nanny service in the UK created exclusively for the luxury hotel industry.
