What are the five best things about The Setai, Miami Beach?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

There’s a lot to love about The Setai, Miami Beach, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star oceanfront Art Deco resort. Besides the recording studio and the sundecks leading out to the Miami hotel’s private beach, here are five things we love most about The Setai, Miami Beach:

1. The design and décor. The design concept of The Setai merges the Art Deco movements of South Beach and Asia. And it’s apparent the moment you step foot in the lobby — the antique gray brick flooring was actually transported brick-by-brick from an Art Deco building in Shanghai.

2. The tower views. The floor-to-ceiling windows in the newer Tower suites offer sweeping views of the Atlantic and what seems like a milelong stretch of South Beach — you’ll feel like you’re on an impossibly glamorous cruise liner.

3. The pools. It’s easy to spend the day lounging in one of the oversized daybeds by The Setai’s three azure pools, each separated with hedges for privacy. With varying temperatures, you can choose which pool is the perfect fit for your afternoon dip — the lap pool is 75 degrees, the lounge pool is 85 degrees and the family pool is 95 degrees. And once you work up an appetite, simply walk over to The Pool & Beach Bar, a 90-foot poolside bar with cool beverages and grilled Mediterranean-style dishes.

4. The Spa at The Setai. Tucked behind the Art Deco and Tower buildings, Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star The Spa at The Setai stands out as a particularly special and private accommodation. It contains just four private spa suites, each complete with its own bathroom, steam shower and  robe and slippers to lounge in. The spa’s traditional treatments incorporate the healing techniques of Bali, India and Tibet.

5. The dining. From Jaya's inventive Asian cuisine to The Ocean Grill's fresh seafood, the hotel is well-stocked with amazing food.
