I stayed at this hotel with my husband and 1 year old daughter and the service is honestly incomparable to any other hotel I have stayed in. The property is in a fantastic location, we hadn't actually realized how great until we arrived. And as you would expect from a five star, rooms and communal areas all pristine. I would... More

I've stayed in many high end hotels and this is one of my all time favorites. The service is truly outstanding. By some magic, every employee seems to know one's name after less than a day. The staff at the pools and the beach always remember preferences. The valet service is great, and the cold bottles of water they provide... More

The resort is amazing!!! The staff was very accommodating and went out of their way to make us comfortable. The location was perfect with easy access to the beach. I loved how relaxing and tranquil the resort was. I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone visiting the Miami area.

While South Beach is know for its wild and crazy atmosphere the Setai is a tranquil and relaxing "away from it all" getaway. Party in SOBE and relax at the Setai. Very upscale and a beautiful Asian vibe sets it apart from most other SOBE hotels. Not to be missed if you want a hideaway in the midst of all... More

We spent 4 nights at The Setai and the property is great. We had an Ocean Suite on the 32nd floor with a balcony. Excellent views. I felt the room was a bit small as it was a suite with a kitchenette and an additional bathroom. However the hotel restaurants, service, pool and beach facilities make up for this. Only... More

This hotel level of service and standards are some of the best I've seen. Every member of staff be it by the pool, at the bar, having a drink in the courtyard or in one of the restaurants is on hand at your service. I stayed four nights here and it has to easily be one of my best experiences... More

This hotel doesn't miss a beat when it comes to offering a classy, sexy, upscale, perfect stay! It is gorgeously decorated throughout and the rooms have a very special touch! The Setai is also in a great location in Sobe so it makes it very convenient! Hands down, the outdoor zen garden/bar is the most romantic places I have been... More

Had high expectations based on reviews read on Trip Advisor and on the experiences of friends who have visited the hotel. Overall, I enjoyed our stay and the hotel lived up to my high expectations. It is a beautiful resort with every luxury expected in a five star destination. Location in heart of South Beach is huge plus. It is... More

This hotel is by far the best on Miami Beach. It is absolutely 5 star with all the amenities and service you would expect. The staff is very friendly, professional and is well trained in hospitality. They never refuse any request. Extra chocolates in the evening - no problem. Can I have a smoothie while sitting in the courtyard and... More

The Restaurant at The Setai invites you to experience a menu that features various cuisines and traditional flavors of Europe's "Sun Coast," inclusive of the Mediterranean regions of Spain, Italy, the South of France and Provence. ... more   less
