Secluded, serene and seductive, the Setai Hotel is among the top-rated luxury resorts on South Beach. Combining an oceanfront hotel with a 40-story residential tower, the property caters to an upscale clientele who enjoy prompt, professional service surrounded by tropical gardens, sparkling reflecting pools and miles of white sandy beach. Dedicated to privacy and discretion, the hotel serves celebrities and socialites who are seldom mentioned in the press.
The overall aesthetic of the public and private spaces is subtly Asian with lots of natural materials, soft lighting and a streamlined design. Utilizing antique grey bricks salvaged from authentic Deco buildings in Shanghai China, the spacious lobby sets the stage for a vacation to remember. Eighty-five guest rooms averaging over 600 square feet and one- to three-bedroom suites from 900-1500 square feet have spa baths, rain showers, Duxiana beds and sateen linens. Guests enjoy flat panel TVs, Illy espresso machines and BOSE iPod docking stations. While it might seem tempting to simply cuddle up and relax, the full-service spa, fitness center and three beachfront pools offer plenty of diversions.
The Setai kitchen employs a small army of international chefs who craft a Pan-Asian menu based on fresh local and seasonal ingredients. The main lobby encompasses over 15,000 square feet of restaurant and bar options including The Restaurant, The Bar & Courtyard and The Grill. A separate pool & beach bar offers casual all day dining with a Mediterranean flair at a 90 foot expanse of alfresco terrace overlooking the Atlantic coast. For a romantic evening, a casual dim sum brunch or a variety of house signature cocktails, the hotel’s exceptional food and beverage team make every meal a special event. Few South Beach hotels compare to the quality and luxury of the Setai.
