The Oyster Box, Umhlanga Rocks, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
Right on the shore’s edge (complete with its own lighthouse!), this iconic landmark perfectly marries old colonial and African-contemporary design and delivers a truly-exceptional experience.
One of South Africa's most beloved luxury beachside hotels, this warm, wonderful, welcoming hotel is known for its fabulous accommodation overlooking the lush tropical gardens or out over the Indian Ocean, the jaw-dropping location, tastebud-tingling food and superlative service.
By day you're perfectly placed to explore the best of the Midlands, Drakensberg Mountains, game parks, lodges and historical Battlefields; or just take some time out and unwind at the spa or the oceanfront pool.
But whatever you do, don't miss The Oyster Box's drool-inducing high tea... a lengthy, leisurely affair with live piano music. Then, as the sun sets, feast on freshly-plucked oysters and Champagne in the Oyster Bar; enjoy the best curry found anywhere in KZN at the Palm Court; or an intimate dinner in the celebrated Grill Room.
