The Setai: A Constant State of Zen

Posted: Jan. 29th, 2007  |  By Christina Stewart
Luxury Resorts & Residences: Against a backdrop of lush palm trees, tropical gardens and the incandescent glow of the Atlantic Ocean, The Setai is much more than your average resort hotel. So much so, in fact, The Setai has developed into a permanent residence for some of Miami's most privileged oceanfront dwellers.

Just steps away from South Beach, The Setai has revamped the 1930s city landmark Dempsey Vanderbilt Hotel. The Setai exudes the essence of modern-day Florida through its use of Art Deco and Asian-influenced design, while maintaining the cultural appeal of the city's eminent past. The Asian-inspired ambiance is enhanced by the subtle overtones, clean lines, and modestly chic décor. The grand lobby is sheathed in Shanghai brick, rich teak, imported stone and Asian art and artifacts.

With rainfall showers, terracotta baths, granite flooring and fine silk linens, all 86 of the resort's guestrooms offer elegance and tranquility. There are 45 one-to-four bedroom suites available, as well as a 10,000-square-foot penthouse complete with a rooftop pool. With a beautiful South Beach skyline, the rooftop seems to be a popular place to clear the mind, gain perspective, and make a little music with its open-air recording studio, designed by recording artist Lenny Kravitz.

If a night's stay isn't long enough, The Setai sales team can help you embody a constant state of Zen and settle you into one of the on-site residences. Comprised of one-to-four bedroom units, two-story townhouses, penthouse villas, and actual hotel-condo suites, there are a total of 163 permanent residences available. Located in an adjacent 40-story glass tower, the units feature a multi-level lobby, floor-to-ceiling windows, and access to all the ground's amenities. If you were to put a price tag on Zen it would go for as much as nearly $30 million.

Attaining such mind-clearing peace is only as far as the Spa at The Setai. Overlooking the Atlantic, the resort's private spa incorporates ancient and eastern techniques into its wide array of treatments and services. The Spa at The Setai is equipped with a fitness center, personal trainers, and three azure pools.
