The Peech Boutique Hotel Had A Makeover

A Fair Trade accredited hotel, the upgrade of the eco-chic urban offering is the latest step in The Peech’s evolution. The recent upgrade has included the addition of 16 new Luxury Rooms, increasing the hotel’s capacity to a total of 32 rooms and suites, including a two-bedroom Luxury Villa. Also, other than the renovation of the original guest-only bistro dining space, Basalt is a completely new and extra offering providing a stylish and refined dining experience for both Peech residents and the city’s culinary scene. Chef Freddie will be at the helm of both restaurants.

What’s On Basalt’s Menu

Chef Freddie is currently adding the final touches to the Basalt menu, which he describes as “contemporary global cuisine”. All he will share now is that diners can expect carefully selected seasonal produce, influenced by his cooking in some of the world’s finest restaurants, while his Portuguese roots and current love of Asian and Mexican flavours will also filter through. In his own words, “really amazing food” is coming to Joburg!

Opening Times

Basalt will be open for dinner five nights a week  – from Tuesday to Saturday.

Basalt opens its doors at the beginning of September with table reservations opening online on Friday, 30 August 2019. Visit to find out more.
