Built in 1947, The Colony is one of the region’s best known boutique hotels. Decorated according to classic tastes, the interiors feature mostly cream and yellow tones with large fireplaces and antique leather armchairs. Famous for their cabaret shows and live music nights, the lounge bar here is a firm favourite amongst locals. Dine on top notch seafood and steaks whilst watching a wide variety of performers, from Jazz quartets to Broadway crooners.
Just round the corner from Worth Avenue, many of the ladies who lunch here stop off for some retail therapy on route. A short walk down the road and you’re at one of the Island’s best beaches. Backed by a fair few millionaire mansions, this expansive stretch of sand is one of the most exclusive spots in town.
Infused with a British West Indies feel, the rooms here are simple and elegantly furnished with pastel colour palettes, tropical inspired curtains and heavy mahogany furniture. Comfy king size beds are covered with pillow top mattresses and crisp white sheets, whilst walk-in wardrobes provide ample space for all your new purchases. The hotel recently unveiled two one-bedroom suites and six rooms which have been designed by Carleton Varney (only one of the most famous interior designers in the world) so request one of these if you fancy checking out the colourful and fresh feel he has incorporated into the design of these stunning rooms.
Why we like it
Bursting with charm and personality, The Colony is one of the most welcoming hotels on the island and treats each guest like a friend as opposed to a customer. Spend your days soaking up the sun on a pool lounger, Mai Tai in hand, or dancing to Motown until the early hours of the morning. Come night time enjoy a fantastic dinner out on the pool terrace and make sure to leave room for desert – they do a mean crepe suzette, flambéed to order in front of your table.
