... were swaying in the winds that brought with them the heavy rain that got us pretty drenched. It's pretty much a straight road back to our hotel, so we chose the cab option to get there.
We got back at about 10:30pm and the weather had cleared up so we decided to swim in the hotel pool for a bit which was nice and relaxing. We then made some more food, packed our things and watched some 'Breaking Bad' in bed before getting some more sleep.
... swimming now I'm sitting at the pool and write this entry... I mean it can't get any better but let's see what the day brings.......... At 9 went up to the roof again to get one last impression. After that I walked to our room where Mactar just woke up so we got ready and went down breakfast, and yeah that was a good breakfast. Sitting on OceanDr in the Sun it was awesome.

... lady in my hiking boots at that point). He’d spent 60 years living in South Beach, and now hung out in this café trying to talk to people, his friends having left him behind when they passed. I wanted to stay longer and chat with Joe, I’m sure he must have stories of mafia gangsters and wild times in Miami but it was time for me to check in and get out of my travelling attire. Joe said “I hope to see you again” and if ...

Unfortunately after being on the boat for like 10 minutes a massive thunderstorm came through and it was ******* down with rain for ages.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Setai Miami Beach
This beautiful hotel is an unbelievable experience. The hotel has really thought about details and has put a tremendous amount into making sure travellers have the best. The Dux bed was phenomenal and a welcome and different touch. The rooms were larger than average and luxurious and comfortable. We would love to stay there again!
The Most wonderfull experience at The Setai Hotel - L.A.
I check in on November 1 till November 7; the hotel cover my spectation; rooms are super cool and comfortible; my rate was $950 at night; the staff very educated and they meet me since i get in to the hotel until i check out. Service at Room Service was excellent, very polite staff; i do really love during dinner time; the lady ordertaker was always calling me by my last name and recomending me food and wine; wich make me feel like a Superman; Jeje yeah; and guys are so friendly; well Pool and Beach was great but i never seen any pool and beach manager around; i ask several times for the manager and never was on it. Restaurant great; but Food too little; Front desk forgot couple of time my wake up calls by well i was on vacation THANKS GOD; Thanks all for you service.
Spent three nights over Columbus Day weekend and had a fantastic time. Anybody that has stayed at Amanresorts will see Adrian Zecha's impeccable touch throughout the public spaces and especially in the rooms. Our ocean view suite was large and beautifully appointed. Thoughtful touches such as a flower arrangement created from our favorite blooms (calla lilies) made the welcome experience extraordinary, as did the in-room check-in.
Uber Luxurious Experience
I checked into the hotel last weekend and did not want to check out. The hotel is a masterpiece of design with contemporary asian themes throughout. The rooms are huge with a large soaking tub in the middle of each and a rain shower off to the side of the bathroom area. Checking into the hotel is a breeze. A hotel staff person meets you at the door and immediately takes you to your room without the hassle of having to wait in any line. The food at all of the hotel restaurants is amazing. In particular, I recommend having dinner at the main dinning room where indian, thai and other aisan delicacies will tempt your tastebuds. Definitely have dessert! I have stayed at many other hotels in Miami and the Setai is definitely in a different league. I can't wait to return!!
Beyond satisfied with the Setai!
The Setai is definitely a must-stay for anyone seeking luxury and tranquility. Our room was large (I think it was about 900 square feet) and equipped with a bedside bathtub and plasma tv. The bath was drawn and topped with rose petals upon arrival, which was a nice touch.
The 3 pools were never overcrowded and the service was friendly and efficient without being pushy. And, in case you think there is any reason to leave the property, think again. With the poolside gym, day spa and three restaurants, there just wasn't any reason to venture out of the hotel. Plus, given my experience with other hotels in South Beach, I know any other hotel would be disappointing now that I have had the Setai experience.
Terrible Expperience and for The $$ shameful
I took advantage of the summer special $750 rate. For that "special deal" I received surly service a room with 4 towels, poor room service and general lack of service....surly.... "I am so cool attitude" from the staff...what a totally absurd over hyped crock....Complaints to the management went unanswered....to its defense the style is very nice but overall a total disappoinment, especially the management who couldn't care less....never again...save yur money and go to the Four Seasons or even the National...
Just got back from a brilliant 5 day stay at the Setai and what can we say? It was magical! The decor was fantastic, our rooms were unbelievable, and the service was top-notch. We loved the tub in the room, which the staff filled with flowers for us without us asking.
If you are going to have a reputation like this hotel does, you have to deliver something. There was nothing "wrong" with our stay, but they are promising like the moon and delivering a 60 watt lightbulb.
If you are planning to find a luxury hotel for your stay in South Beach, Florida, I would advise against The Setai Hotel.
Stayed in a two bedroom condominium. Very Asian influenced attentive and friendly staff. Excellent rooms with flat screen TV's in every room, awesome bathrooms (great products and linens). Chic decor in hardwood and black granites. Views of South Beach area superb from full height glass windows. Kitchens have capuccino machines and all mod-cons, all best brand products. Well stocked fridge complete with hangover cures! The beds are incredible. Huge jacuzzi baths with lots of room for two. Hotel/restaurant/bar not yet open. Beach bar very cool with great staff. Three connected swimming pools. Best location in South Beach. Was there on a Thursday night (Red room, Nobu, Mint all jamming).
