Traveling to South Africa for holiday, we opted to go to Durban. And found the most amazing hotel. We have stayed at the Oyster Box Hotel and traveled back a month later to simply revisit the place, the Oyster Box Hotel. Remarkable place. The staff, service, food, the spa, and the rooms, simply impeccable. The staff were really friendly and attended to our needs with utmost urgency and with a pleasant attitude (which is very hard to find in a lot of places). They took time to know us by name and never forgot, especially when we went back for our second visit. This creates such a warm environment and makes your stay extra special.
We give OBH, 130%. Thank you so much for making our stay pleasant, comfortable and absolutely romantic. We shall be back. To anyone traveling to South Africa, Durban, make sure you stay at OBH.
Keep it up!
