The Setai is an intimate, serene oceanfront resort in the heart of South Beach. Its design vision artfully combines the rich architectural history of the neighborhood and its cultural diversity with the International Art Deco movement, particularly its influence in Asia.
The Art Deco landmark building was originally built between 1936 – 1938 as the famed Dempsey Vanderbilt Hotel. Next to it is our 40-story glass tower that surpasses all around it in elevation, views and design.
The Setai voted as the “#1 hotel on Miami Beach” in 2013 by U.S. World & News Report and The Spa being voted the “Best for Romance by SpaFinder Readers’ Choice Awards” in 2012 are just a few among the other awards given to our award-winning hotel.
