The legendary 5 star Oyster Box Hotel is beautifully positioned on the ocean’s edge in the beach resort of Umhlanga north of Durban in South Africa’s tropical KwaZulu-Natal province. The Oyster Box Hotel is located only a 5 minutes walk from the Umhlanga Village Centre and can easily be reached from the Durban city centre, the International Airports and the numerous stylish shopping centres.
Nearby sightseeing places and tourist attractions include the Gateway Theatre of Shopping, Ushaka Marine World, the Sun Coast casino, the historical Natal Midlands and the majestic Drakensberg Mountains, as well as excellent big 5 game reserves, game lodges and KwaZulu-Natals’ famous historical battlefields.
After extensive renovations in 2008 and 2009 the Oyster Box Hotel Umhlanga has kept its classical charm and elegance. From the moment the Oyster Box opened its doors back in 1947 the hotel rapidly became one of Africa’s most popular and distinguished hotels. The combination of colonial charm, impeccable service, lush tropical gardens and breathtaking oceanfront setting gained it a reputation that was legendary.
