Occupying a majestic location on the Umhlanga beachfront in KwaZulu-Natal province, The Oyster Box is one of South Africa’s most celebrated hotels, as famous for its remarkable coastal views as the understated luxury and gracious hospitality that have become the hallmarks of this cherished seaside destination.
Set just 15 minutes’ drive from King Shaka International Airport, The Oyster Box offers an array of individually decorated rooms and suites, an award-winning spa set amid tropical gardens, and a mouth-watering menu of restaurants and bars.
The Oyster Box is famous for the creative seasonal cuisine that takes its cue from both the surrounding coastline and local cultures. Seafood is a signature and the Curry Buffet at the Ocean Terrace is legendary, while the spectacular breakfast guarantees an inspiring start to your day.
Tyler Liebenberg, acting general manager of The Oyster Box, was delighted saying, “The Oyster Box is incredibly proud to be able to carry the flag for South Africa and Africa at this year’s award.”
It comes at a significant time for the owner, The Red Carnation Hotel Collection, which celebrates its own milestone in 2020, with 100 years in hospitality. With its roots firmly in South Africa, the group now encompasses 20 hotels worldwide including The Twelve Apostle’s Hotel in Cape Town and Bushman’s Kloof Wilderness Reserve in the Cederberg.
