Beautifully placed on the spectacular Indian Ocean shoreline is the Oyster Box Hotel. Built in 1869 as a beach cottage before converting to a hotel in 1954the Oyster Box Hotel is a luxury five-star hotel in Umhlanga, just North of Durban, South Africa. It’s presently one of Africa’s most luxurious hotels, and it is a perfect destination for business trips, tours, honeymoon or for vacation.

trv The Oyster Box Hotel is a dream location in Durban

I love the fact that the Oyster Box is just a few meters from the famous golden beaches and within easy reach of tourist attractions like Ushaka Marine World, Gateway Theatre of Shopping, the Sun Coast casino just to mention a few. The hotel boasts of 86 elegant and comfortable rooms and suites, with amazing views of the blue Indian Ocean providing the perfect environment for total body and mind rejuvenation. Additionally, guests can enjoy the hotels gym and fitness centre, a massage, outdoor pool, sauna, restaurant, gardens, jacuzzi, business centre and so many other facilities. The light house bar has amazing live music as well as sundowners that last long into the night. It is no wonder Prince Albert of Monaco and Princess Charlene of Monaco opted to party here before their 2012 wedding. Check out more photos of the Oyster Box Hotel below.

After a ridiculously busy week, pack your bags, dash off to the airport, book that flight to South Africa, check into the Oyster Box Hotel, order up some wine and just soak up all the scenery. There’s a strong sense of character here; the staff are warm and their attention to detail is meticulous.
