The Oyster Box is one of the world’s best loved and most distinguished, luxury seaside hotels. Standing majestically on Umhlanga’s prestigious beachfront, overlooking the iconic lighthouse, it provides direct beach access and staggering views of the Indian Ocean.
Opened in 1947, it still retains the gracious elegance, glamour, and passionate service that made this one of South Africa’s most cherished hotels. From the impeccable uniforms to the genuinely warm smiles, thoughtful details and the latest amenities and facilities, from delicious cuisine and lush tropical gardens to the splendid luxury of each individually designed room, suite and villa. Guests are treated to an experience as unique, as it is magical.
