The Setai Miami Beach redefines what you might expect from a South Beach hotel with a dark, Southeast Asian-inspired aesthetic. There are rich woods, exotic materials and East-Asian artwork and artifacts everywhere from the lobby to the three restaurants to your room. Both the design elements and the interior architecture marry the hotel’s Art Deco history (the landmark building was first built in 1937) with a modern, minimalistic Asian vibe. High on the 40th floor, the Penthouse Suite is a stunning four-bedroom suite that occupies the entire floor. Each room in the ocean-facing suite has at least one wall of floor-to-ceiling windows, so whether you’re in one of the two master bedrooms, the kid’s bunk/media room or the queen-sized bedroom, it feels bright and airy. There’s a music foyer with a Steinway piano, double living rooms and a 3,000-sq-ft private rooftop terrace with an infinity pool, Jacuzzi and lounge area, should you want complete privacy while soaking up the Miami sun.
