Hotel Spas to Visit Now: The Setai
The Setai Miami Beach’s latest spa treatments fit the hotel’s Asian-inspired aesthetic to a tea thanks to their partnership with Thémaé. The Paris-based cosmetics and spa brand is inspired by and named after the Japanese tea preparation ceremony. The Spa at The Setai by Thémaé was introduced earlier this year and features treatments that use exclusive products made from the extracts of red, white, green, and black teas—each of which has its own specific medicinal benefit.
At the Setai, those idyllic minutes of pampering can be spent having a brightening Green Tea Facial, an Ancient Balinese Massage (palming, light stretching, effleurage and pressure point techniques), or a Thai-style foot reflexology session—all using Thémaé’s skincare products. Body scrubs and wraps, aromatherapy, and ant-aging treatments are also available. Package offerings are equally (if not more) irresistible: The Blissful Ceremony includes a 60-minute Stress Relieve massage, which uses techniques from three different cultures, and a 30-minute facial. The Bali Oriental Ritual combines an aromatherapy foot polish, a Balinese massage, and foot reflexology into ninety minutes of pure tranquility.
Where's the next best place for an authentically oriental spa experience? Well, you'd have to head to Asia for that.
