Managed by United Kingdom - based luxury resort hotel operator General Hotel Management, the Setai was designed by Jean Michel Gathy and is managed by General Hotel Management Chairman Adrian Zecha. It started its life as the Dempsey Vanderbilt Hotel in the 1930s, in the midst of Miami's famed art deco era. Subsequently, it has evolved into a fusion of Miami culture, preserving the art deco aspect while also adding an Asian aesthetic, apparent in the hotel's many reflecting pools, quiet reflective areas and mythical Asian statues, which stand regally on pedestals.

Once you've walked through the hotel and passed by its beautiful reflecting pools and "pods" with oranges on the tables, which consequently are there to remind you that you're in Florida, you'll notice the spa, which specializes in Eastern techniques. As you continue to make your way toward the hotel pool, you'll notice there are three of them, in fact, in perfect alignment. Each of these striking indigo pools provides for a different experience, as they each have a different temperature, ranging from 75 degrees to 95 degrees, and a different purpose: one is for active swimmers, one for loungers and another for children. The pools are surrounded by day beds that are accompanied by the requisite umbrellas, as well as couches and lounges that are made of rich colored wood and slate grey cushions. The pool provides full-service treatment, towels, water, magazines and even iPods to use while you are catching up on your rays. You can even get food and snacks from the Beach Bar while you are relaxing poolside.
