Pools & gardens

The Oyster Box rests amid lush sub-tropical gardens brimming with wild figs and ancient milkwoods, where princess palms play host to wild orchids and bright hibiscus flowers offer a flash of colour above serene ponds. Selected suites and villas offer private plunge pools, with two large swimming pools open to all hotel guests. True to our commitment to energy efficiency, the swimming pools are heated using excess heat from the hotel’s air-conditioning system.

Oyster Box Clock Library

The Clock Library

Warm textures and rich hues, handpicked furniture and objets d’art characterise the Clock Library, featuring a fascinating collection of antique clocks bought on auction or during the Tollman family’s travels to exotic places. The only room in the hotel for the private use of resident guests, it is accessed with a key card and is the perfect place to enjoy a quiet drink in a leather armchair with lighthouse views or to page through one of the many books that form part of a library of family heirlooms collected over many years.
