I recently returned from a weekend at the Oyster Box and cannot wait to go back again! Absolutely everything was perfect.....from the minute you arrive to the sad moment when you have to leave!
This was my 2nd visit and it truly felt like home away from home - I was there on my birthday and every single member of staff helped make it very special - my room was beautiful, fresh flowers everywhere and lots of surprises along the way all weekend long. Tyler Liebenberg and her team are phenomenal and I cannot think of a better place in the world to celebrate a special occasion.
The food at all of the restaurants was superb......don't go expecting to lose weight! Everything is beautifully presented and tastes delicious.
Sadly the weather wasn't great when we were there but that just meant that we could truly indulge in the spa's offerings.....and once again there wasn't a single thing that could have been done to improve any of the visits or treatments.
Yes, the location is superb, the rooms gorgeous, the food delicious, the spa brilliant, the detail everywhere outstanding but what really makes this hotel different from other 5-star hotels that I have visited all over the world is the people - the entire team make you feel at home and welcome and you never want to go anywhere else again! Well done Wayne, Tyler and your whole support team. Can't wait for the next visit!
