Situated in the leafy suburb of Melrose, a stone’s throw from Johannesburg’s buzzing CBD, is The Peech, a hotel that has recently introduced an array of fourteen elegant Luxury Rooms. Each spanning 50m2, the rooms embody a flawless juxtaposition between striking, metropolitan architecture and customised interiors, marked by soft textures.
The rooms have been sophisticatedly designed to boast details that will appeal to the modern, discerning traveller. The handmade furnishings are exquisite yet simplistic, allowing the manicured gardens that The Peech is celebrated for, to be a standout feature. Guests can admire the gardens’ abundant greenery and flora as they unwind on secluded patios or verandas, after sliding open stackable doors.
The rooms are filled with natural light that draws attention to the range of carefully curated artwork, including maps, drawings and prints, displaying indigenous flora and fauna, or playfully hinting at Johannesburg’s recognised architectural icons. The rooms are also embellished with Green Living herringbone oak floorboards, sourced from sustainable forests.
The theme of sustainability continues in the bathrooms– contemporary spaces sporting double-sized showers that are greatly beneficial for water conservation, and lavish amenities that are locally crafted with natural ingredients. Although there are no baths, the walls are fully covered in tiles that create a nature-inspired aesthetic, along with the quartz carpet flooring in monochromatic shades of grey, white and black. Opening stackable glass windows welcomes ample light and fresh air.
