A national treasure
South Africa’s most cherished hotel stands majestically on Umhlanga’s beachfront, overlooking the Indian Ocean & the iconic lighthouse.
Umhlanga Rocks, KwaZulu-Natal
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.
With South Africa’s Covid-19 recovery well underway, we are delighted to once again welcome international travellers back to The Oyster Box.
Please mention that your pet will be travelling with you and we will forward our special 'Pet Preference' form. There will be a €75 charge per dog, per night.
In the room for the duration of your stay we will provide a supremely comfortable bed, fluffy towels, duvets, food and water bowls with fresh mineral water, and a turndown treat for your V.I.P (Very Important Pet).
Please contact us for a full list of prices.
You are responsible for any and all property damage and/or personal injuries resulting from your pet. You must further agree to indemnify and hold harmless the hotel, its owners and its operators from all liability and damage suffered as a result of your pet.
The hotel reserves the right to charge your account an amount commensurate to the cost of such damage, and it will be withheld from the damage deposit amount of €1000.
This amount will be posted to your hotel folio, as a pet security deposit, and refunded or credited to your account following a room inspection upon departure. We invite you to attend this inspection. Should a charge be made against this security deposit, you agree that you will not dispute the charges posted to your credit card. Please be aware that these policies are stated to protect both parties, and in no way are a reflection on our desire to host your pet. Should you have any questions, or need clarification on these policies, please do not hesitate to contact the Duty Manager.
