LEISURE

The Oyster Box is proud of its Durban location, just 15-minutes form the city centre, and as such is pleased to offer activities throughout the area as well as within its walls. So, if you ever grow tired of spa treatments, sun tanning and swimming pools, speak to your concierge to organise activities further afield.
 
Whether you love shopping in designer stores, haggling in outdoor markets, or just sampling a bit of local fashion, Durban has everything you could want. Shopping isn’t the only attraction of the area, of course, with fantastic looking beaches in every direction, golf courses covering almost half of the countryside and wildlife reserves never too far away to spend a day visiting.

Get the family together

Considered to be one of the best hotel’s around for a family-friendly trip, The Oyster Box goes far beyond the call of duty to offer you and yours an exceptional holiday that you’ll never forget – even the pets get five-star treatment!  
 
The beautiful gardens are alive with exciting wildlife like monkeys and birds which will keep the little ones entertained for hours trying to spot them and take photos. For a quiet evening activity, take a walk along the beautiful golden sands of the beach just outside the hotel’s front door, most of which have dedicated walking paths. And if this doesn’t impress the kids, their exclusive access to complimentary goodies like a backpack complete with fishing net or wristband that entitles them to candyfloss and milkshakes is sure to get them smiling in no time!   

Step into a world of wellbeing

The spa at The Oyster Box is a secluded and peaceful space, away from the main hustle and bustle of the hotel. Set in a tropical garden paradise the spa is ideally located to combine sensational treatments with the soothing chirp of birds and the heady scents of exotic flowers.
  
Each guest can expect treatments of the highest quality, carefully selected and personalised by a team of specialists. The focus on holistic treatments also means that you won’t have to worry about harsh chemicals in the products as its skincare range uses only natural and organic ingredients.  

Rock-tail around the clock

If you came for sun, sand and sea then this location is an ideal spot for you. With warmer waters than you’d find on the Cape, Durban is a hive of watersport activity that’s just waiting for you to dive in. And where better to make these discoveries than at Rocktail? A pristine, tropical beach that offers a world of underwater experiences.
 
Snorkel the day away in the magical sea world of Lala Nek or get your PADI scuba certificate and catch a glimpse of the diverse marine life in this premier diving location. Animal lovers will definitely want to make Rocktail a place to stop as during the Summer season, this beach offers Turtle drives so you can watch peaceful creatures come ashore and make their nests.
