property overview

Constructed in 1869 and originally used as a navigational beacon, a beach cottage known as the ‘Oyster Box’, was first converted into a hotel in the 1930’s.

The Oyster Box combines colonial charm, impeccable service, lush tropical gardens and breathtaking seaside setting. A lovingly refurbished landmark, it offers guests a vibrant, contemporary experience, while evoking the warm nostalgia of bygone days, delivering a blend of hospitality and elegance with a wealth of modern facilities and fresh touches to satisfy today's discerning guests.

Situated on an impressive beachfront on the eastern seaboard of KwaZulu Natal, the hotel is just a five-minute walk from the Village Center, a 15-minute drive from Durban, and convenient to Ushaka Marine World, the historical Natal Midlands, the Drakensberg Mountains, and excellent “big five” game parks. With its feeling of classical charm and elegance, The Oyster Box offers a timeless expression of exceptional hospitality, luxurious accommodation and personal service unmatched in all Africa.
