The excellent, and regularly acclaimed, Oyster Box Hotel is at first a throwback to elegant, colonial South African accommodation, and then a haven of modernity. A short walk from Umhlanga Village, this recently renovated hotel is within easy reach of Durban and the international airports, as well as numerous tempting shopping centres. The iconic red and white lighthouse sends a beacon of friendly allure across the tropical northern coast of KwaZulu-Natal.

The Oyster Box Hotel is ideally located for the plethora of South African treats; from the selection of awesome golf courses nearby, the Ushaka Marine World, Sun Coast casino, the historical Natal Midlands and majestic Drakensberg Mountains, as well as excellent Big Five game parks, lodges and historical battlefields. The global press are awash with reports of the revered hotel’s re-emergence as one of the regions most coveted accommodation choices.

The hotel offers a wide array of beautifully appointed rooms and suites, plus eight divine Garden Villas, each with its own private pool. Each room is replete with a flat screen, satellite TV plus DVD player and iPod docking station plus full wi-fi access is available throughout the hotel. Comfort is ensured with the soap and pillow menus, while fresh fruit and flowers are delivered regularly. The architects worked hard throughout the restoration project to successfully preserve the original character of the hotel, whist carefully weaving in state-of-the-art technology.

Dining at Oyster Box is a gastronomic dream. The menus at the three beautifully set restaurants are exquisite. Dine on freshly caught seafood at Grill Room, or the adjacent Colony Restaurant. For Eastern promise, enjoy the spicy treats emanating from the authentic Tandoori oven of The Ocean Terrace, or take a late lunch beneath the chandeliers of the Palm Court Restaurant.
