We Care

Red Carnation Hotels is part of the TTC family of brands and works in proud partnership with its TreadRight Foundation to #MakeTravelMatter.

At The Oyster Box, we are committed to our community and to supporting local charities such as the Amy Biehl Foundation and Pack for a Purpose. We are proud to make a donation to Rhinos Without Borders for every key card returned to reception, and we encourage our guests to participate in beach clean-ups by offering a complimentary drink for every bucket of rubbish collected.

Beach Clean-up

For every bucket of rubbish collected from the beach by hotel residents, we offer a complimentary drink in the bar. Buckets are supplied by the hotel and once returned to reception, they are redeemed for a voucher enabling you to enjoy a beverage as a ‘thank you’ for helping us with our efforts.
