Standing proud on Umhlanga’s beachfront, directly on the beach and overlooking the Indian Ocean, the 86-room Oyster Box, a Member of Red Carnation Hotel Collection, is one of South Africa’s favourite hotels. Offering charm and nostalgia of a bygone era, but with all the modern comfort and amenities. Facilities include a magnificent Spa, two swimming pools, luscious gardens as well as a 24-seater movie theatre. High Tea is a lengthy, leisurely affair with live piano music providing a welcome addition to the occasion. All pastries and baked goods are prepared on the property by our wonderful pastry team. The high tea table is a visual and taste spectacle of sumptuous treats, with everything from freshly baked scones, pastries, quiches and cakes, to finger sandwiches as well as savouries.
Set in the lush surroundings of the hotel gardens, these charming garden villas each enjoy the luxury of a private plunge pool, relaxing terrace, private lounge, with bar, and an opulent bathroom. If guests wish, these villas can also be converted into a 2 bed-roomed villa, simply by also reserving one of the Garden Villa Lofts.
A national treasure, The Oyster Box is South Africa’s most cherished hotel. Standing majestically on Umhlanga’s beachfront, overlooking the Indian Ocean as well as the iconic lighthouse, discover timeless elegance.
Enjoy a multitude of dining options, including the famous curry feast and High Tea, and indulge in the award-winning spa amid tropical gardens.
