Afar Magazine

The Setai is unlike most hotels in its neighborhood, offering a mature, sophisticated alternative to the frenetic party-time energy of other properties Full review →

Somehow avoiding being ostentatious, the hotel still uses ultra-luxurious everything: the finest Swedish beds, deluxe Italian linens, deep soaking tubs, and lacquered wood furniture and accessories.


Once among most stunning lux hotels on the Beach, but now showing its age and getting stale.



The place is stunning... it's a hotel for grownups, people who aren't interested in parading around the pool or having a party in the lobby.


Condé Nast Traveler 87.5

"The Setai sets the standard for luxury, calm, and taste" in South Beach. Full review →



This Asian-inspired Collins Avenue hotel attracts a fashionable international crowd, where the scenes at the palm-shaded pools (there are three, each set at a different temperature), the beach, and the Sunday brunch are why people come to stay Full review →


DK Eyewitness

This South Beach hotel opened in 2005 on the site of the former Vanderbilt Hotel. It is pricey but has every luxury, with 50 rooms and 75 suites.


Fodor's Tick Choice

Even if you can't afford a stay at one of Miami's priciest hotels, take time to visit this most beautifully designed space and its three restaurants, which welcome nonguests. Full review →


Forbes Travel Guide 91

With its Asian-inspired, streamlined decor, The Setai, Miami Beach is a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star luxury oasis in a sea of crowded, overdesigned South Beach hotels. Full review →


Frommer's 34

The Zen-like, Asian-inspired Setai is truly for that 1% of society who can afford it. Full review →


Gayot 49

It is elite and divine. Full review →



Zenned-out Miami Beach digs with a stellar spa, three pools and Atlantic Ocean views. Full review →


Lonely Planet

A well-realized theme mixes Southeast Asian temple architecture, Chinese furniture, contemporary luxury and an overarching Anywhere Asia concept.


Not For Tourists

Setting for Jennifer Anniston and John Mayer pool makeout sessions. Yuck. Full review →


Oyster 5.0

Paradise doesn't come cheap... one of the best hotels in Miami. Full review →


Rough Guide

Condo-tower-cum-hotel that’s known for its celeb-heavy clientele... as much as for its pricey, vaguely Asian-themed rooms.


Star Service Tick 5

At 21st Street, on the edge of SoBe, this hotel occupies a sparkling white and reflective glass complex that faces the beach like a giant's tuning fork Full review →

Those who choose to brave the looks and lenses on the beach are well taken care of, with umbrellas, beach chairs and day beds at the ready, and a full staff on hand to quell thirsts and hungers.

The Telegraph 9.0

Looming large as the tallest building in South Beach at 40 storeys, The Setai is a bastion of privacy and tranquility Full review →


Time Out Tick Critics' Choice

In a case of Orient excess, the Setai boasts a four-bedroom penthouse with a $30,000 rack rate and the starriest clientele in town. Full review →


Travel + Leisure

With some 40 floors, the Setai rises over South Beach like an opulent obelisk, serving as a playground for damn-the-expense visitors. Full review →


Zagat 4.2

Asian touches (antique jade, teak accents) throughout this "very sophisticated" property yield a "peaceful" ambiance that extends to the "spacious", "sexy" art deco rooms.
