Hotel Overview


On the infamous South Beach, just north of Miami’s Art Deco district.

Rooms at The Setai

The Setai’s suites are housed in the 1930s Art Deco building and a 40-storey glass tower and are contemporary and cosy, in classic decor with a subtle Asian theme reflected in the teak walls and authentic Chinese jade pieces. Handmade Duxiana beds, black granite baths and Bose surround-sound CD and DVD systems are in every suite, which have stunning sea, courtyard and city views.

Food and facilities

The food at The Setai has earned itself many awards - the restaurant has a share-style menu which draws on Far Eastern and classic Western influences, while the Setai Grill specializes in prime meat and seafood. In the bar, in the courtyard and by the pool and beach, you'll find Asian plates and drinks, Eastern-inspired cocktails and delicious al fresco lunches.  The spa has plenty of pampering treatments, which are personalized for each guest and available in suites overlooking the beach or the pool- the hotel has three temperature-controlled pools as well as direct access to South Beach, along with daybeds to sunbathe on.

Activities at The Setai

Next door to the hotel is the city’s only fine art museum, the Bass Museum of Art, which is a good place to shelter from the afternoon sun for an hour or two. Take a yoga or tai chi class in The Setai’s spa or for something more active, do some snorkelling or deep-sea diving or speed off on one of the hotel’s jet skis. At night all signs point to South Beach’s bar, club and music venues, which come to life after dark.
