When you walk into the lobby at The Setai, Miami Beach, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star oceanfront hotel, it’s tough not to be speechless. We’ve collected ourselves and wrangled up five words to describe the style of this gorgeous Miami hotel:
1. Art Deco. The Art Deco landmark building was originally built between 1936 and 1938 as the famed Dempsey Vanderbilt Hotel and the style of that period, merged with Asian Art Deco, inspires The Setai’s décor. In fact, the antique gray bricks in the lobby were actually transported from an Art Deco building in Shanghai.
2. Zen-like. When you walk into your guest room at The Setai, you’ll notice the black granite bathtub. We recommend taking a relaxing soak after a day spent on the sand of the hotel’s private beach.
3. Modern. Though The Setai’s look may be antique, between the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s two-story Lenny Kravitz recording studio and the technology found in The Setai’s suites, the technology throughout the resort is up-to-date. The TVs in the suites even come with Bose surround sound, and you’ll find a complimentary cell phone in your room to use during your stay with your own personal number to make unlimited local calls and search the Internet as much as you need.
4. Luxurious. The vast wine list at Forbes Travel Guide Recommended The Restaurant, the lobby’s jaw-dropping mother-of-pearl bar and the handmade Duxiana king-sized bed topped with Frette linens are enough to tip you off that this resort is pure luxury.
5. Private. The hotel was designed with privacy in mind, so you can have your own time on the beach or poolside. If you’re looking for even more privacy, try Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star The Spa at The Setai, tucked behind the Art Deco and Tower buildings, which comes equipped with four completely private spa suites, each decked out with its own bathroom, steam shower and robe to lounge in.
