The glass tower of The Setai Miami Beach (2001 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-520-6000) looms large as the tallest hotel on South Beach at a staggering 40 stories. It stands as a sort of sentinel facing the Atlantic Ocean, its lines reminiscent of an ocean liner (a design motif found in the city’s earliest Art Deco buildings), yet this model is far more grand and modern than anything that has come before. The tower, fortified elegantly with stacks of oversized glass balconies glistening in shades of the deepest ocean to the shallowest sand flat, seems to signal that a bastion of serene luxury exists here.
And indeed it does. With design influences from the Far East, the hotel features grey bricks imported from Shanghai and doorways blessed by Buddhist monks. A zen poolscape boasts three pools running parallel to one another leading towards the ocean and a minimalist pagoda-like beach bar in teak hardwood and limestone.
A hotel and residence, The Setai’s tower suites are privately owned and roughly 40 are apart of the hotel’s rental program inventory. Additionally, there are 80 studio and one-bedroom suites available to hotel guests inside the more diminutive Art Deco building.
Beginning April 23, hotel guests will enjoy a heightened level of luxury and personalized service with the launch of The Setai’s Ocean Suites located in the oceanfront tower. These one-, two- and three-bedroom suites range in size from 900 to 3,500-square feet and include the 1,750-square foot, three-bedroom Entertainment Suite and the 3,500-square foot, three-bedroom Grande Suite boasting its own media and spa room.
The 10,000 square-foot Penthouse spans the entire 40th floor with wrap-around balconies, 360-degree views, a gourmet kitchen, two living rooms, and an impressive 3,000 square-foot rooftop terrace with private infinity swimming pool and Jacuzzi is the crown jewel of the collection.
The exclusive services and amenities available to guests of The Ocean Suites include private roundtrip airport transfer along with a dedicated concierge and valet staff (check-in and check-out times are flexible based on availability). Daily breakfast is included either en-suite or in The Restaurant at The Setai, as well as a spa treatment en-suite or in The Spa at The Setai.
Each Ocean Suite features a kitchen stocked with non-alcoholic beverages replenished throughout guest’s stay, as well as an arrival bar inclusive of spirits and snacks. Additionally, unlimited movie selections are at the guest’s disposal, as well as access to a luxury courtesy car for nearby transfers. And for the guest who’d rather not lift a finger, on-request personal assistance for unpacking and packing of luggage is available.
“This concept differentiates our most exclusive suite accommodations by offering The Setai’s iconic personalized service infused with a selection of bespoke amenities that enhance and add value to the guest experience,” said David Casey, Executive Director of Sales & Marketing for The Setai Miami Beach.
Ocean Suite rates start at $2,250 per night. As an introductory invitation, guests who book an Ocean Suite for three nights will receive the fourth night free through September 30. For more information and to reserve, please call 844-THE-OCEAN, email firstname.lastname@example.org or click here.
