The Setai, Miami Beach’s three beachfront pools, divided by meticulously maintained hedges and surrounded by large, comfortable gray daybeds, feature special amenities including sunscreen (on request), beach towels, bottled water, and a range of newspapers including the Financial Times and The New York Times, as well as a few different magazines. If you’re heading down to the beach, you’ll find staff members there who will help you get set up at a lounge chair and they’ll bring over a small basket with ice cold bottled water and a water spritzer that you can take with you if you venture to the beach. (Note that the daybeds are not able to be reserved; they are available on a first-come, first-served basis.) The pool concierge at this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Miami hotel can also help you arrange more active water diversions such as jet-skiing, deep sea diving, and a private yacht charter.
Each of The Setai’s separate pools has a different temperature: The lap pool is 75 degrees, the lounge pool is 85 degrees and the family pool is 95 degrees; the family pool is open to kids but the other two are reserved for adults only. After a day of sunning and swimming at one of lovely pools, simply walk over to The Pool & Beach Bar, a 90-foot poolside bar with cool beverages and grilled Mediterranean-style dishes. Or you can order a cool beverage or snack from your seat by the pool from one of the staff members walking around.
