On a recent trip to Johannesburg, I got to stay at the Peech Hotel again and to check out their newly built suites. This family owned and operated boutique hotel is one of my favourites in the city. I love the very central location tucked away in the leafy residential suburb of Melrose and close to the places I like to visit. The very established garden filled with lush subtropical plants and large trees offers guests privacy and a whole lot of zen.
The recent addition of 16 new luxury rooms has doubled the hotel’s size to a total capacity of 32 eco-chic rooms, including a two-bedroom Luxury Villa. I like the simplicity of the décor and the toned down palette with soft layering, and the connection between the outside and the inside. The architects designed the buildings so they feel like they are floating in the garden. The bathrooms are ginormous and open onto a thoughtfully designed utility area that is separated from the bedroom by beautiful screens. This area houses the mini bar, tea & coffee, an open plan cupboard and a desk.
They are in the process of building a second restaurant and wine bar on the property, which will take their food & beverage offering to the next level.
The Peech Hotel which is 5 minutes away from Rosebank (Gautrain) and Melrose Arch totally over-delivers on its 4-star rating and I highly recommend it.
