You and your loved one will find many romantic spots at The Setai, Miami Beach, thanks to its alluring interior design, tranquil atmosphere and abundance of dramatic ocean views. Pressed to choose, we’d have to go with the Penthouse Suite or the terrace of any of the oceanfront suites as the most romantic — and secluded — spot on the property. Something about the unique combination of Zen-chic design amid the bustling nightlife surrounding the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel creates a distinctive environment for love at The Setai, Miami Beach that will complete your couples’ retreat.
At night, The Setai, Miami Beach’s dark and sultry Asian-style courtyard at The Bar & Courtyard serves as the perfect spot for a romantic date. A glimmering rectangular man-made pond in the center of the area features several square seating areas — each surrounded by water on three sides — that extend out into the pond and look as if they’re floating (they reminded me of lily pads). These lovely seating areas are lined with gray-padded benches adorned with matching pillows where couples can cozy up and order an Asian-inspired cocktail from the menu (try the Chili Passion Martini with chili-infused vodka, passion fruit-infused rum, ginger syrup and chili flakes). A modest illuminated fountain in the center of the pond fills the area with the soothing sound of trickling water; palm trees planted in square pots throughout the pond rustle in the breeze; and, large candles on dark wood pedestals lining the wall of the courtyard cast a soothing glow. The scene is definitely set for romance.
