Some day spas are on another level. Like this one near Durban, set in luscious tropical gardens filled with the chatter of monkeys, exotic birds, and the scent of flowers.

We’re talking about The Oyster Box Spa, set on the Umhlanga beachfront in the KwaZulu-Natal resort town just north of Durban.

The spa has six lush treatment rooms, a grooming lounge, hydrotherapy bath, plunge pool, sensation shower and the only Turkish Hammam in South Africa.

The spa also offers B Africa signature products and a range of holistic treatments.

Treatments and therapies are inspired by the rich cultural diversity of Kwazulu Natal’s African Indian culture.

How about a full body exfoliation, followed by an earth wrap using indigenous ingredients?

Enjoy the healing warmth of the Hammam before washing off and cooling down in the in the sensation mist shower.

An experience here wouldn’t be complete without a sensory African back massage with heated stones.

A visit here will be sure to take you on a journey of rejuvenation, wellbeing and relaxation.

The attached Oyster Box hotel overlooking the Indian Ocean is a treat to stay in too.

The historical hotel has a mix of rooms, suite and villas, two swimming pools, luscious gardens, and even a 24-seater movie theatre.

And fun fact, the hotel is pet-friendly which means that small pets travelling with their owners get five-star treatment as well.
