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.
With dozens of London's best restaurants in the surrounding area, many at our own sister hotels, there is a wealth of options for dining out when staying at The Egerton House Hotel.
We are delighted to present an intriguing and carefully chosen wine list that offers an outstanding blend of quality and value. Our wines present a fascinating cross-section of the almost infinite variety and range of the world of wine. Many of the wines listed are available by the glass, including a selection from our sister wine estate, Bouchard Finlayson in South Africa, widely acknowledged as among the finest produced in the Cape. We are confident that even the most discerning wine lover will find something within its pages to satisfy and delight.
