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.
As part of a joint venture with Bedford Estates, we have installed bee hives in the leafy enclave of Montague Street Gardens. The hives are home to over 20,000 bees that play an important role in supporting the surrounding ecosystem, as well as providing the beautifully fragrant local honey served at the hotel.
We are continuing our efforts to phase out single-use plastics by 2022 and reducing our food waste in partnership with Winnow. We also help to support the local community as well as a variety of initiatives, and together with The TreadRight Foundation, we strive to #MakeTravelMatter.
