It's a confusing place. There's no doubt this is a beautiful and well-run hotel. Rooms are nice but not amazing. The Asian restaurant is excellent. But this is an eye-wateringly expensive place. The buffet breakfast is $50 a head. Think about it. I came away a bit unsatisfied because the whole experience is nice but at this price I expect...

About a week ago, I stayed at the Townhouse hotel at the opposite of the street. I spent quite some time, however, in The Setai. It is a beautiful, luxurious and esthetic hotel. I especially want to thank some people for their help, assistance or service : - Mr. Thomas Beuermann from the Front Desk - Roia, Robson, Laszlo and...

The Setai combines beautifully appointed interiors, and amazing service. From the second my daughter and I arrived, we were treated as if we were the only guests there. It was like having a personal flock of fairy godmothers, eager to make our wishes come true. This is an elegant hotel. There were some bachelorette/bachelor parties-and some of the most beautiful...

Incredible experience with great solid cocktails and small plates in one of the most relaxing zen-like spaces. Fantastic service, attention to detail, a haven in the otherwise sometimes crazy south beach scene. The Setai is a winner and a great demonstration of a world class resort.

This place is a gem and if you can get a vacation rental - the rooms are even bigger! Of course A line suites on the ocean are best but a bit pricey. Service here is un-matched. Would highly recommend this for anyone who can afford it!

We were strolling along South Beach when this place caught our eye. We wandered in out of curiousity. After a long day of travel, we were looking for a drink and some hors d’oeuvres. We ended up eating dinner here. I just had a hamburger and a beer, even though I can't find it on the menu now. The hamburger...

I stayed her by myself for a friend's birthday in Miami. Being that I am not in college anymore, I really appreciated the hotel's sophisticated, more demure vibe. South beach is a fabulous party city and I was certainly out all night for dinner and dancing but it was such a welcome respite to come home to this peaceful, Asian-inspired...
