The Oyster Box

Overlooking the Umhlanga Lighthouse and Indian Ocean, this luxury five-star hotel was initially built in 1869 as a beach cottage and was later converted into a hotel in the 1930s. Why give up such a prime location after all!

The Oyster Box, an award-winning five-star luxury boutique hotel in sunny Durban, is the ideal venue from which to experience this part of South Africa.

Its views are as memorable as they come, what with the expanse of beautiful blue ocean only steps away. Enjoy leisurely dips in the magnificent swimming pools (you’re sure to be out of breath after a length or two of these bad boys) or head to the gym or the Spa for some pampering.

There’s even a holiday club for the young ones and an in-house cinema – so you really don’t need to leave the hotel. Just sit back in your red-and-white sun-lounger in the massive, well-kept garden area and enjoy the warm rays.

There are a variety of rooms to stay in – whether sea-facing or garden suites are more your thing. It’s worth splashing out for the most luxurious option, we say. When in Rome… or Durban, at least.

Enjoy sundowners at the vibey Lighthouse Bar on the hotel roof or drinks with friends in the colourful Chukka Bar, have casual meals at Ocean Terraces on the patio or savour fine dining at the Grill Room inside with its nautical theme and tufted chairs.
