I just adore the month of LOVE! Valentine’s Day gives you free reign to celebrate all things pink, red, heart shaped and romantic for a full 28 days ;)
One of the most romantic things to do is to sneak away to a fabulous hotel for an evening of R&R, great food and the company of a loved one… And I know a hotel that is just perfect for that!
Nestled in the heart of Joburg, The Peech Boutique Hotel has been hosting discerning guests for over 10 years, and with only 16 rooms, it really is an intimate experience. The Bistro is run by chef Greg Jardim, who focuses on regional, seasonal and often organic ingredients, even harvesting a lot of what he uses from the Peech’s own vegetable and herb gardens.
The main house of the hotel was a family home until 10 years ago when James Peech bought and renovated it, adding more rooms in 2006 and 2008. And what I especially like is that they practice ‘Responsible Tourism’, centered on recycling, energy conservation, green design and community support.
The rooms are gorgeous, the gardens and pool perfect spaces to relax and get lost in a book, and the bistro makes the most divine dishes – the perfect breakaway during the month of love.
