The Setai, Miami Beach – Florida, United States
The ocean-front The Setai, Miami Beach is an integral part of Miami Beach’s social, cultural and architectural heritage that combines the destination’s sleek Art Deco style with a serene Far Eastern aesthetic. The façade of the 1938 Dempsey-Vanderbilt hotel was meticulously restored, its interiors enhanced with Burmese teak, Indonesian bronze and dark gray bricks salvaged from historic Shanghai buildings. Counterpoint to the original building is the new adjacent 40-story glass residential tower, which houses some of the hotel’s suites. With three pools, three acclaimed restaurants and a dedicated concierge team, The Setai leaves no request unfulfilled.
In 2017, the Hotel will observe the 80th Anniversary of its landmark Art Deco Building, with a number of 80th Anniversary property-wide celebrations including Setai Vintage.
Adjacent to the Art Deco Building is The Setai’s 40-story glass residential tower featuring The Ocean Suites surpassing all around it in elevation, views, and design with 1-4 bedroom suites and complimentary services.
In this paradise of pools and palms, the waters at The Setai, Miami Beach inspire repose. You’ll find three magnificent azure, temperature-controlled pools, and the beachfront property is poised just steps from the white sand and turquoise waters of South Beach.
Jaya, which means ‘victory’ in Sanskrit, was chosen to honor The Setai’s renowned interior designer Jaya Ibrahim and the hotel’s first decade of successful Asian-inspired hospitality. Executive Chef Mathias Gervais and Executive Sous Chef Vijayudu Veena have collaborated to create standout dishes from Thailand, Vietnam, Korea, India, China and Japan.
Wellness & Spa
The Setai proudly introduces a re-imagined spa experience: The Spa at The Setai by THÉMAÉ.

Miami, Florida, United States
Sun-kissed beaches and art-deco beauties make an alluring backdrop to Miami’s other charms – a burgeoning arts scene, creative cuisine and blazing nightlife.
Nights in the City
When the sun sets and the brilliant colors of a South Florida sunset fill the sky, that’s when the best part of the day begins for Miami’s party people. By moonlight, all the magic of the city unfolds, in its salsa-filled dance halls, swanky candlelit lounges, and rooftop bars with sweeping views over Biscayne Bay and the glittering city skyline. While there’s plenty of bling on display, Miami has something for all, from backyard bars full of indie rockers to hidden dens of debauchery concealed behind neon-lit taco stands.
Creativity, Miami Style
Chalk it up to Miami’s diverse population, or perhaps its love of always being on the cutting-edge. Whatever the reason, creativity is one of the great hallmarks of this city. From art and design to global cuisine, Miami remains ever on the search for bold new ideas, which manifest themselves in surprising ways. You’ll find brilliantly inventive chefs blending Eastern and Western cooking styles, sustainably designed buildings inspired by South Florida ecosystems and open-air galleries where museum-quality artwork covers once derelict warehouses. The one constant in Miami is its uncanny ability to astonish.
The Great Outdoors
Few cities are as blessed as Miami when it comes to natural beauty. Sparkling shores lapped by aquamarine waters set the stage for a memorable array of adventures, from sunrise strolls along peaceful stretches of Mid-Beach to scenic paddles in search of manatees off Virginia Key. You can look for colorful bird species while walking the trails of Oleta River State Park, or simply enjoy some downtown greenery while lounging in Bayfront Park. With year-round sunshine, and a love for celebration, the open-air is also where Miami’s biggest parties unfold – whether at massive music and dance festivals or the neighborhood fiestas that pack Miami’s cultural calendar.
Architectural Jewel Box
Even if there was no beach, Miami would still have undeniable allure. The gorgeous 1930s hotels lining Ocean Dr are part of the world’s greatest collection of art-deco buildings. Tropical motifs, whimsical nautical elements and those iconic pastel shades create a cinematic backdrop for exploring the streets of Miami Beach. Of course, you don’t have to see these architectural beauties at arm’s length. Lavishly restored, Miami’s art-deco and mid-century modern hotels are also the playground for locals and out-of-towners alike, with sunny poolside terraces, artfully designed dining rooms and plush nightclubs.
