The sleek, sophisticated Asian-inspired interiors—floor to ceiling black granite and polished teak—and impeccable service sets The Setai apart from all of its competition, but not at a modest price.
The new tower—40 stories of glossy aquamarine glass—sits right on the beach and houses the hotel’s private condos as well as some of the more grandiose hotel suites. But the Setai’s heart lies within the refurbished facade of the Dempsey Vanderbilt hotel, an eight-story Art Deco landmark building dating back to the ’30s. This is where you’ll find the more modest studio suites.
All rooms are equipped with excessive amenities like in-room espresso machines, but the real treat is the open-plan bath with a black granite tub spacious enough for two…or more.
