“Best breakfast in SOBE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

We ve stayed at the riviera beach resort ( one bloc away from the setai ) but we really wanted to hâve à great breakfast Buffet ( 35 dollars plus tax ) but everything was perfect : fresh bread and pastries , great fresh fruit , smoked salmon ... The location is on a outdoor patio with Lounge bed and Music . Service impeccable . If you are hungry and love to indulge yourself just go go go go .

Stayed February 2014

We spent 3 nights at the Setai Miami and we really loved it. Everything was great: rooms are really beautiful, well furnished and comfortable. Style is great: oriental-fancy with a modern flavor. Service is amazing! It was a great experience. Totally recommend it. Worth every dollar.

We went to South Beach January 2014 to get away from the cold weather.

After looking at many hotels online, we decided on staying at the Setai. We rented a 2BR, 2Ba condo instead of two hotel rooms.

The condo was extremely nice, 22 floor, direct ocean and city view, and the location was really good at 20th and Collins -Ocean drive is a few blocks South.

The Setai has an Asian flair and very nicely decorated. The service is excellent, and staff very attentive. It's in walking distance to many restaurants if you don't want to eat at the hotel.

The Setai is located right on the beach, but has 3 pools also.

We used taxis when we wanted to leave the area (went in Miami once) since we didn't rent a car. I think car parking was $50 daily.

South Beach is quite expensive so bring lots of cash or a good credit card.

The Setai is a magnificent property with attentive service and gorgeous design.
Love the rooms with their combination of woods, the illy espresso maker and llanllyr water.
The public spaces, both indoor and outdoor, are lush and comfortable.
Have stayed at various other premium properties on SoBe and have to say like the Setai best with its evocation of Phuket and Bali, and the great breakfast.

My overall stay went pretty well, Housekeeping was great, doormen excellent. However, the have the worst security staff that I've seen throughout the duration of my travels around the world. I had an item stolen while i was in the pool, they had several attempted robberies from homeless people that hide within the shrubby along the day beds within my stay. This is not 5 star service! Secondly, I file a report with the security manager and he just seem to be un-knowledgeable with overall security procedures. This same night my Tower unit was entered by a security officer, who failed to knock or announce his presence. So, I say great hotel.. But, be very careful with your property and trusting of the security staff.. Absolutely worthless!

The property is first class. Great location on Collins and right off the beach. They had people on the beach to help set us up with towels and chairs. The beach was very pretty and clean. We also ate at the restaurant for dinner, which was excellent. Although the price is high, it was a great experience.

The Setai oozes class and sophistication, doubtless safe in the knowledge it's one of the most desirable addresses in all of Miami beach. From check in to check out, things were smoothe and understated. The pools were welcoming, the breakfast buffet a knockout, the cocktails innovative and the vibe just the right side of laid back. We'd come back here in a heartbeat.
