From romantic couples’ treatments during the ‘month of love’, to the hilarious Curry and Comedy evening to elegant dinners with guided wine tastings, The Oyster Box is the place to enjoy the relaxed coastal atmosphere of Durban, which has a rightly earned reputation as South Africa’s most popular holiday destination.

Here is a summary of the hotel’s special offerings for summer 2018:

• In honor of Durban’s Indian heritage, the accomplished chefs at The Oyster Box have created a one-of-a-kind Indian Chai High Tea.

• On February 15, sparkling wine enthusiasts are invited to the Domaine Des Dieux tutored tasting with canapés, which is followed by a three-course dinner complemented by your favorite Méthode Cap Classique (MCC).

• Express your love this February with one of The Spa’s special couples’ treatments.
