Rooms at The Oyster Box

We love the old-world charm and breezy coastal colours in The Oyster Box’s 86 rooms, but the best aspect has got to be the stunning Indian Ocean views.

Food and facilities

The Oyster Box has easily the best restaurant in Durban, and their legendary curry buffet has got a real cult-following (as their chef says: you really haven’t had a curry until you’ve tried a Durban curry). You can also treat yourself to one of their genteel afternoon teas, and for some old-fashioned glamour they have dinner dances every Saturday.

Activities at The Oyster Box

There’s not much you’ll want for here, other than oysters, champagne, and those killer ocean views, but you can also kick back in their very own cinema, relax in their gorgeous spa and pool, or go for a breezy walk along the beach.
