The Peech Boutique Hotel
JO’BURG – The Peech (FTTSA accredited) is Johannesburg’s eco-chic boutique hotel. Set in the suburb of Melrose, it has sixteen bedrooms spread over a lush one acre garden, a sophisticated bistro restaurant and a boardroom. The hotel blends a contemporary, edgy, Afrocentric design with a sustainability policy that includes eco-friendly solutions, like solar water heating and grey water recycling.
The Garden rooms are in annexes overlooking the hotel’s lush gardens. They are designed with separate work & relaxation areas and have a private patio or balcony facing onto the gardens. All rooms have features, such as iPod docking stations, flat screen TV, high-speed WiFi, and low energy air-conditioning systems.
The Peech bistro is run by head chef Greg Jardim and Robert Chifunyise the wine buyer. Greg regularly changes his menu focussing on flavour and simplicity. He says: “I’ve tried to create a menu that reflects what The Peech is all about: simple, laid-back and chic with an understated touch of sophistication.” Greg’s aim is to use locally-sourced suppliers and ingredients that are as organic as possible.
