From its prime location on Umhlanga’s beachfront, The Oyster Box is treated to a stellar view of the Umhlanga Lighthouse ahead and the Indian Ocean beyond. As a member of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection, The Oyster Box upholds a very high standard of service and strives to deliver the best experience possible to its guests.
The Oyster Box is seaside living at its finest. Well-placed for easy access to the Durban city centre and a number of shopping locations, there is plenty to see and do with little travel time involved. If exploring the city doesn’t sound like much fun, the hotel’s massive swimming pool, in-house spa centre, and numerous bars are all great spots to kick back and enjoy some much-deserved downtime.
Accommodation at The Oyster Box is the perfect fusion of modern design and old-world charm. Decorated using calm colours and natural textures of wood and stone, the rooms complement the surrounding rocky shoreline instead of overpowering it. Each of the 86 Rooms, Suites, and Villas features an en-suite bathroom, air conditioning, satellite TV, and speedy Wi-Fi.
