ABOUT THE OYSTER BOX HOTEL

Originally opened in 1947, The Oyster Box has long been one of Africa’s best-loved and most distinguished hotels, with an abundance of colonial charm and a breathtaking seaside setting.

Standing majestically on Umhlanga’s prestigious beachfront near Durban, with sweeping views of the Indian Ocean, lush landscaped tropical gardens and direct beach access, this legendary hotel occupies a special place in the hearts of countless guests who have enjoyed its warm, caring service and relaxed elegance.

The new owners, The red Carnation Hotel Collection, have gone to extraordinary lengths to preserve the original character, texture, environment and allure of The Oyster Box, following two years of meticulous planning, delicate craftsmanship and time-honoring restoration. All of the colonial charm has been lovingly preserved, yet interweaves essential modern touches of technology to bring this legend into the 21st century and to satisfy today’s most discerning travelers who visit for business or pleasure, with family and friends.

The Oyster Box offers a choice of 86 luxurious rooms and suites to suit the needs of every visitor, each individually and tastefully decorated. The exquisite original hotel tiles, murals, paintings and antique furnishings have been well cared for during the restoration program and dare once again perfectly positioned to enhance the distinctive charm of this grand hotel.
The stylish décor is an elegant combination of natural stones and woods, complemented by soothing, light colors that reflect the different shades of the surrounding ocean and tropical vegetation. The restoration of the gracious establishment includes a collection of paintings by local artists that capture the vibrant culture of the Zulu people. The Oyster Box is proud to incorporate the remarkable work of so many talented artists in the stunning décor of a new hotel.
