The Colony Palm Beach is the next best thing to having a home in Palm Beach! From the well situated Colony it’s an easy thing to indulge in all that Palm Beach has to offer. Of course, with the Colony’s delicious culinary offerings, Polo Bar, and nightly Royal Room cabaret, it’s really more than tempting to simply stay put!
Breakfast served poolside is such a treat, and when you’re there, do try the “low country shrimp and grits” and/or the the shrimp and avocado omelette — it’s all so very Duchess of Windsor. We spent pretty much every day lounging and lunching with friends — only leaving the Colony’s confines to soak in some sun in the afternoon at the nearby beach before returning for cocktail hour and the evening’s festivities. We were lucky enough to be there for the infamous Thursday “Boys Night” which is as you may have surmised, an opportunity for local and visiting guys and their pals to congregate — we ourselves celebrated the night under the stars with bottles of rosé, though inexplicably most remained indoors. If you are anything like me, when you’re in the tropics, you want to be, well…in the tropics!
I’m photographed (top) poolside at the Colony dressed for dinner and “Boys Night” in a Tom Ford palest blue silk dinner jacket (worn casual), Tom Ford white cotton twill pants, white cotton shirt, and ivory suede loafers, Mark Pomerantz blue and white floral silk pocket square, Le Noeud Papillion purple and pale blue glen plaid silk ascot worn as scarf, Seaman Schepps pearl and pale blue sapphire cuff links, Paul Stuart blue and white ribbon belt, Creed Windsor fragrance, and a bit of Tom Ford Bronzing Gel to enhance my tan.
