Towering above the eight-story shell of the Art Deco 1938 Dempsey Vanderbilt hotel, The Setai is an oasis of serenity in hip Miami Beach. The design draws from Asian minimalism, from the black granite lobby to guestrooms and suites with teak floors and walls, jade sculptures and silk accents. The stars of the show are the ocean views from the floor-to-ceiling windows, a perk of being one of SoBe’s newest (and tallest) buildings. The uber-exclusive Setai Spa draws inspiration from the Pacific Rim for treatments like Thai herbal massages, Balinese bathing ceremonies and organic seaweed wraps.

Toast happy hour with the hip kids at new tiki-inspired it-bar the Broken Shaker, in the Freehand Hostel. Then have one of the rich house-made pastas at Scarpetta or some bourbon and fried chicken at Yardbird.
How to Get There
From the second you walk in this exquisite hotel you will be treated very very good, they spoil you from the free drinks in the fridge to the free breakfast buffets to the free slippers and the awesome soaps and such... great location in Miami Beach and you get your own lounge chair and umbrella on the beach and they have three pools all different temperatures. gosh I have nothing but good to say about this hotel. Oh they will also pick you up from the airport for free.
Excellent location, walking distance to restaurants, shopping, and of course, the beach. We have been fortunate enough to have visited 67 countries and with that, countless hotels. The Setai is special and we look forward to visiting again!
The service is as good as it gets. The entire hotel feels like a spa. It’s very relaxing! The food is good we ate dinner on Asian night and breakfast every morning. They had free breakfast and free valet parking while we were there. The beach set up is perfect as is the pool. Do note that a room facing the restaurant is loud while the music plays at night but you can see the ocean in the higher floors.
