The Oyster Box

Standing majestically on Umhlanga’s beachfront just 15 minutes from the airport, overlooking the Indian Ocean and the iconic lighthouse, The Oyster Box is one of South Africa’s most cherished hotels and a national treasure.

Discover the timeless elegance and enjoy a multitude of dining options, including the famous curry feast and High Tea, and indulge in our award-winning spa amid tropical gardens.


Old world charm with modern day comfort

With 86 luxurious rooms, suites and villas to choose from, The Oyster Box meets the individual needs of every visitor. Whether you’re travelling for business or leisure, a family group or solo, each room is superbly designed to provide the utmost comfort and style at your home away from home.


Take a dip in the plunge pool, invigorate the body with a hammam and sensation shower at the spa, or work up a sweat in the fully equipped fitness room. Restore beauty and balance with one of the all-natural B|Africa treatments, with holistic attention paid to all of your senses. Follow this by relaxing and meditating in the tranquility lounge. Signature treatments include full body massages using crystal-infused oil such as rose quartz, amethyst and rock quartz, to inspire a peaceful spirit. 

Dining at The Oyster Box is an extraordinary experience.

Sublime cuisine using the freshest seasonal ingredients will tempt and delight - of course incredible oysters are on the menu - even for breakfast accompanied by Champagne should you wish! The numerous restaurants and bars offer something for everyone, with fresh seafood, incredible steaks and the famous curry feast. A delicious and indulgent High Tea is also a firm favourite with plenty of treats to tempt you. Dine together overlooking magnificent views, dine privately with a group of friends or dine at the Chef's table and watch the magic happen first hand - there's so much choice.
