A near-perfect beach location right on the edge of the Indian Ocean, this classically-influenced hotel offers luxury and comfort in great style, and yet is just a five minute walk from the boutiques, restaurants and bars of Umhlanga village.
Each of the 86 rooms is the last word in comfort, but choose one with an ocean view so that you can enjoy being lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves. By day, enjoy everything the beach and sea has to offer including snorkelling, fishing and surfing, and by night luxuriate in the hotel’s restaurants and bars.
Stylish hotel with excellent facilities and steps down to the beach. The village of Umhlanga Rocks has undergone a massive transformation in recent years and now offers an excellent selection of restaurants, none more than five minutes walk from the hotel.
Oyster Box hosts some fantastic places to tuck into. The Grill is a special one and offers some of the best (and freshest) seafood around. It’s extremely popular so booking in advance is a necessity. For something a little more causal opt for the Ocean Terrace. Showcasing a stunning vista across the Indian Ocean, and serving up a buffet breakfast and in the evening sit down as the sunsets while authentic Tandoori and pizza ovens prepare some of your favourite dishes with exceptional taste and aroma. The bars offer a great range of cocktails, international and local wines and the perfect spirits for a pre-dinner drink or an evening nightcap.
Meticulously refurbished, each room is superbly designed to provide the utmost comfort and style. All of the colonial charm has been lovingly preserved – the exquisite tiles, murals, paintings and antique furnishings have all been retained in their original glory. The décor also makes excellent use of natural stone and timber, complemented by calming colours that reflect the soothing shades of the surrounding ocean and tropical vegetation.
The Oyster Box’s child-friendly attitude makes it a must for parents who want to spoil the whole family. Thoughtful child-friendly touches include:
