In Palm Beach, the pink-hued Colony Hotel is turning 70, and has unveiled a fresh point of view under new owners, Andrew and Sarah Wetenhall, who are as enchanted by the hotel’s cheeky elegance as its past guests—like Frank Sinatra and Judy Garland—have been.

To celebrate the hotel’s 70th anniversary, the new owners have debuted new experiences, including complimentary bespoke bikes, new beach amenities, tailored kids’ activities as well as all-inclusive fitness retreats. Recently debuted in partnership with New York’s Voltz Clarke Gallery, the hotel’s exclusive exhibit space, The Gallery, is currently featuring renowned photographer Landon Nordeman’s exhibit titled “High Season.” thecolonypalmbeach.com
