If you’re after a private, truly unusual escape that showcases the city in a completely new way, this is the staycation for you. The Peech Boutique Hotel is leading the way for discreet design-forward accommodation in Joburg blending in seamlessly with its urbane setting.
Their Melrose location is also pitch-perfect for all things CBD. It’s a stone’s throw from all the great experiences in Sandton and other attractions, but you can also afford to never leave the hotel.
For the rooms, expect 32 modern and well-appointed guest rooms and suites that are all exceptionally decorated in an ‘Afri-chic’ style and acute attention to detail. Most rooms are fitted with a bath for the ultimate relaxation (how rare are baths in hotels these days?) and balconies offering commanding views overlooking two acres of lush and largely indigenous gardens.
The Peech offers two restaurants, an exclusive guest-only bistro offering fresh, light meals throughout the day, and a casual fine dining dinner restaurant called ‘Basalt’, an intimate and sophisticated restaurant open to hotel guests and local patrons in the evenings.
In addition to this luxe accommodation, the hotel also has some serious eats: an exclusive guest-only bistro offering fresh, light meals throughout the day, and an intimate and sophisticated restaurant open to hotel guests and local patrons called ‘Basalt’. Both restaurants are run by Chef in Residence, Candice Philip.
