You won’t have to travel far to find the popular attractions near The Setai, Miami Beach, including the famous Ocean Drive and South Beach — just be sure to walk on the park side of Ocean if you don’t want to be bothered by touristy restaurant hawkers — and the Lincoln Road pedestrian mall, which offers a prime people-watching spot in the evenings and a spectacular place to shop or grab lunch during the day. Miami’s latest architectural gem, the 1111 Lincoln parking complex designed by Herzog & de Meuron is also nearby. Non-design nerds don’t fret: It includes restaurants and designer shops, too. The Bass Museum of Art is just steps from the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, so you really don’t have an excuse not to go.
Also definitely worth a look, if not a visit for a performance, is the Frank Gehry-designed New World Center, home to the New World Symphony and a variety of cutting-edge events that blend classical music with DJs and include movies projected onto the exterior of the hall, for you to enjoy from a seat in the park in front. Check with the concierge for schedule and directions to any of the local attractions and for help scoring tickets and entry into special events.
