Setai is located in South Beach

Originally built in the 1930's as the well-known Dempsey Vanderbilt Hotel, The Setai recreates the style and nostalgic charm of Miami’s fabled past as it seamlessly blends Asian traditions of simplicity and Zen elegance with au courant allure.  The adjoining 40-story residential tower is set in a breathtaking oasis of tropical gardens, sparkling pools and sundecks leading down to a gorgeous stretch of white sand beach.  Stemming from the vision of famed hotelier Adrian Zecha, whose previous endeavors include The Regent Hotels; The Setai reflects a passion to provide an experience that few can imagine.  Starting with an intimate setting, The Setai creates a private world that connects you with the quintessential attractions of South Beach: vast sea vistas, shimmering sunlight, and soft sandy beaches.  A haven of serenity and naturally fragrant beauty, the understated elegance of The Setai stems from soft silhouettes, crisp clean lines and invigorating surroundings.  The Setai is more than just a lavish condo on the beach.  In fact, it’s a one of a kind condominium-hotel and beach resort including the most formidable 5-star services and amenities that you will find anywhere in South Florida.  This new, fully renovated art deco landmark houses a lavish spa, health club and an extraordinary restaurant and bar.


Located on one of the most beautiful oceanfront properties in South Beach, The Setai offers studios, one-two- and three-bedroom suites (and occasionally a 4 or 5 suite apartment, when an owner combined 2 units), in addition to a lavish, 10,000 square-foot Penthouse with a rooftop pool and dazzling panoramic views of the ocean, the beach and Miami skyline.  The Setai owners/ residents enjoy all of the amenities afforded to the hotel guests – the three ocean-side swimming pools set amidst the sumptuously landscaped gardens, the teak-latticed beach cabanas and day beds, with food, towel and beverage service, the glorious Spa - an intimate private world dedicated to the restoration of the body, mind and soul.  To work up a healthy sweat, opt for the fitness centre - with personal trainer - golf, tennis, water sports or deep-sea diving.  Alternatively, on the quieter side, there's yoga and tai chi to restore inner balance.  Another facet that sets The Setai apart is its cornucopia of exquisite culinary and lounge options.  First, there is the Restaurant, with its expansive exhibition kitchen, where the seasoned chef combines the finest and freshest ingredients from different parts of the globe to create trans-ethnic cuisine that includes Asian as well as modern comfort foods.  Then, there is the Sushi Lounge, which offers sushi as well as a rich selection of caviar from around the world.  Inside, floor-to-ceiling wine cabinets showcase an extensive selection of champagnes, white and red wines.  For a pre-dinner cocktail, stop by the Bar - nestled between the lobby and the courtyard, it offers fine beverages from around the world.  For an afternoon break, The Beach Bar, a 90-foot poolside bar stretching virtually the entire length of the pool deck, offers cool beverages and grilled Mediterranean-style dishes.


This luxury Miami hotel offers East-West fusion with elegant Asian-style teak-floored rooms and suites all packed with goodies - from flat-screen LCD and plasma TVs to Lavazza espresso coffeemakers and high-speed Internet.  The floor-to-ceiling windows, multi-level lobby and all the finest amenities help to make the Setai condo your perfect intimate, tropical Miami Beach destination.  The one, two, and three bedroom residences range in size from 850 to 2,800 square feet, and are available for sale or for rent.  The hotel and condo rental program is managed by GHM (General Hotel Management Ltd.): An International hotel management firm that oversees a select group of boutique hotels and resorts in prime locations throughout the world.  Additional amenities include: round-the-clock concierge, room service, and maid and on premises valet services (upon request), three magnificent swimming pools, a tropically landscaped beachfront resort area, food and beverage service at the pool and many, many more VIP services as well.   The Setai condo-hotel includes an unprecedented feature-The Lenny Kravitz Recording Studio.  Artists will be welcomed to record in the state-of-the-art studio designed by legendary Lenny Kravitz.  Another celebrity draw is The Setai Club, an invitation-only private ownership club occupying the top floor of the property.  Founders of The Setai Club hail from the worlds of business, fashion, art, entertainment and sports and include Boris Becker, Sheryl Crow, Heidi Klum, Lenny Kravitz, and Jacque Nasser, to name a few.  The club greatly enhances the condo-hotel’s visibility as well as increases the occupancy of a desirable clientele. 


Located on the 20th block of Collins Avenue, The Setai condominium is within walking distance to some of the most popular South Beach restaurants, cafes and shopping.  Literally just steps away from the trendy Lincoln Road Mall and Miami Beach Convention Center, and only minutes from the Miami Beach Marina as well as some of the most famous South Beach restaurants including: Joe's Stone Crabs, Prime 112, China Grill, and Smith & Wollensky Steakhouse, make the Setai the perfect place to call your first, second or third home.  Brilliantly evocative of a bygone century, The Setai on Miami’s South Beach, Florida, is a meticulously replicated art deco landmark, situated in the prime oceanfront district of South Beach, the Setai is truly incomparable – and that landed it at #2 on the Robb Report's 25 Next Big Things list.  The Setai South Beach is the only hotel/condo to have this distinction bestowed upon them – and it undoubtedly deserves it!
