The design concept of The Setai, Miami Beach is “Design Art Deco fusion,” a philosophy that melds the Art Deco architecture of South Beach with the influence of the Art Deco period in Asia. The hotel’s lead designer, Jean-Michel Gathy, envisioned the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star resort as more of a vacation home than a hotel. You’ll feel more than welcome amid the natural materials, expansive space and light filling up Gathy’s beautifully planned design. The tasteful décor has an underlying Asian aesthetic and values, from the antique bricks on the lobby level salvaged from Shanghai’s Old City to the Asian-style teacups used in place of regular glass tumblers in the guest room bathrooms at The Setai, Miami Beach.
