The Oyster Collection is family-owned and family-run. Our founders, Nic and Louise Poole have a hands-on approach to hospitality, which is deeply rooted in:

A Passion for Hospitality:

Our dedication to attention to detail, and commitment to exceeding guest expectations set us apart. We believe in going above and beyond to ensure each guest feels not just welcomed but truly a part of the family.

Empowered Employee Ownership:

At The Oyster Collection, we believe in giving our team members not just jobs, but ownership in their roles. We encourage initiative, innovative thinking, and a sense of responsibility in every task you undertake to grow personally and professionally. Understanding how we operate is the first step in ensuring you can thrive in your role. With open and honest transparency, we aim to build trust and strengthen our bonds as a team.

Premium Performance: 

Behind every seamless guest experience is a well-orchestrated effort and hard-working team. We place a premium on consistency, ensuring that each guest receives the same exceptional service, no matter which of our South African destinations and individual properties they choose to visit. Our staff, who care to maintain the continuity of service, play a crucial role in upholding this commitment. 


Our Why

Beyond the layers of luxury, exquisite decor and personalised service, The Oyster Collection has a deeper purpose. We exist to:

  • Serve as ambassadors for South Africa in our carefully selected destinations. Through authentic South African hospitality, we aim to give our guests a taste of this country’s rich culture and natural beauty.
  • Export South African Hospitality to the World: Our ambition extends beyond borders. We’re on a mission to take South African hospitality to global heights, introducing the world to the warmth and authenticity that defines our nation.
