Overlooking the sultry waters of the Indian Ocean, the Oyster Box Hotel sits regally on the rocky crags of the eastern cape of South Africa. Built in the 1860s, this historic property is known as the "Grande Dame of Umhlanga," and is the official custodian of the Umhlanga lighthouse. This 86-room luxury hotel has been voted the best hotel in South Africa by culinary and hospitality reviews alike, frequented by royalty like Princes Harry and William of England, the Zulu King Goodwill and Prince Albert II of Monaco, who selected the property for his wedding reception and honeymoon. Renovations by the Royal Carnation Hotel Group have put the hotel on par with some of the best hospitality destinations in the world. The Oyster Box is a pearl on South Africa's coast, its lighthouse beckoning travellers into the safety and comfort of one of the world's most sought-after hotels and wellness resorts.
