Oyster Box, Umhlanga Rocks

Nostalgic, charming hotel with a superb beachfront location.

Red-and-white striped candy-cane sun loungers sit around the pool, complementing the iconic colours of the Umhlanga lighthouse that stands on the sand before the pool of this charming colonial hotel. From the Ocean Terrace and Oyster Bar, you can spot dolphins leaping from the glittering waters of the Indian Ocean as you sample fresh oysters and sip on a delicious sundowner. Nostalgic and enchanting yet modern and comfortable, this idyllic hotel is the perfect beach retreat.
