The Setai, Miami

The electric energy and glittering nightlife of Miami’s South Beach can be great fun to explore, but after the excitement you will want somewhere serene, intimate and relaxing to retire to. This is what you are treated to when you stay at The Setai, a magnificent hotel that is an iconic oasis of luxury and serenity. Although a peaceful retreat, The Setai is located in the heart of South Beach and allows guests easy access to The Lincoln shopping district, the dozens of bars and restaurants, plus the hotel opens onto the glorious Miami Beach.

The Setai offers guests a choice in buildings to stay in, with both having their own distinctive style and ambience. Standing a stunning 40 storeys high, The Setai boasts the tallest building on South beach which features glistening aquamarine glass that matches the ocean water. It also has the most beautiful building, which is the landmark Art Deco building on Collins Avenue which was originally the world famous Dempsey Vanderbilt Hotel. Inside the hotel, guests can unwind in a Zen-like setting with Asian inspired décor, which is a refreshing break from the funky décor and brash neon that illuminates all of South Beach.

The Ocean Suites in the majestic glass tower offer supreme luxury and breathtaking views of the sea, with one to four bedroom suites available to guests. The Art Deco suites, meanwhile, are located in the Art Deco building and these are available in studio suites, junior suites and one-bedroom suites, and all feature beautiful Asian-inspired artwork and artefacts. The décor and inventive use of space creates a peaceful retreat, making them the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploring. Both buildings provide guests with king-sized beds, a rainfall shower, a stylish bath in black granite, high definition TV’s, in-room espresso machines, wireless internet and everything you need for a wonderful stay.

The hotel restaurant features seafood dishes with a Mediterranean menu, using the classic Spanish cooking technique of grilling “a la plancha”. The breakfast menu is also a highlight, with waffles, pancakes, eggs, salmon, pastries and everything you could possibly want in a hearty and filling breakfast to get you going for the day. Guests can also unwind and socialise over cocktails in the elegant bar and courtyard, which offers the perfect backdrop for a fun evening on South Beach without having to leave the hotel.

The Setai offers guests wonderful spa experiences, including massages, indulgent rituals, romantic ceremonies for two, facial treatments, waxing and nail treatments. This allows you to pamper yourself and recharge your batteries after a night on the town. Guests can also easily step onto the lush white sands and enjoy the tranquil turquoise waters of South Beach thanks to the hotel’s own private beach.  Here there are day-beds, a wonderful beach kitchen and also the opportunity to jet-ski for the adventurous types. The hotel also has three fantastic infinity pools, kept at the perfect temperature and complete with areas to relax and a fully stocked bar.
