honeymoon like a princess…

July 28, 2011

The recently married Prince and Princess of Monaco spent a few nights of their honeymoon at the Oyster Box Hotel in Umhlanga, a short drive from central Durban on the eastern coast of South Africa. For years this historic hotel, built in 1869, with its iconic lighthouse was relegated as tired, old seaside hotel which despite its history was more than a little bit tacky. However after an extensive re-build it re-opened in 2009 and is now considered to be one of the places to stay in Durban.

Retaining its colonial charm,  this elegant mediterranean style hotel with stunning views of the Indian ocean is perfect for a romantic wedding or relaxing honeymoon. Weddings can be held in the beautiful gardens or the Pearl Room with views of the ocean while honeymooners can stay in one of the charming 86 rooms or luxurious suites. It’s the perfect place to relax, with a choice of infinity pool or why not sun yourself on the beach or enjoy a pampering session at the new world class spa.
