At The Setai, Art Deco glamour and Asian-inspired luxury combine to create a tranquil escape right on the beach. It’s hard not to feel a wave of relaxation wash over you as you walk through The Setai’s two-story, zen-inspired lobby. All-suite accommodations range from one bedroom to four bedroom suites with ocean or city view views. The Penthouse Suite, situated atop The Setai’s Ocean Suites, spans the entire 40th floor. This four bedroom 10,000-square-foot sanctuary features a private rooftop pool with panoramic city and beach vistas, a gourmet kitchen, and a dining room for ten guests.
The Setai offers two distinct dining experiences – Jaya Restaurant and The Ocean Grill. At Jaya authentic Asian heritage dishes by Executive Chef Vijayudu Veena are enhanced by locally sourced ingredients. The Ocean Grill has a dining deck with extra beachfront seating, perfect for enjoying the menu’s Southern European and classic American dishes, and specialty seafood selections, which are prepared on a wood-fired grill.
THÉMAÉ, the spa’s signature brand, is a Paris-based cosmetics and spa brand, inspired by the art of tea and named after the Japanese tea preparation ceremony. The spa’s THÉMAÉ rituals and skincare products are created with extracts from four different kinds of teas.
Best bet: There’s a Sunday Jazz Brunch offering live jazz, free-flowing Roederer Champagne, rotisserie, seafood, Asian, and dessert stations with outdoor seating in the newly renovated Courtyard.
