While travel is beginning to open up, many people are still opting for staycations and mini getaways close to home. If you live in South Florida, you have plenty of options to choose from — the beach is always close at hand, and lots of hotels are currently offering great rates for locals. If you’re craving an elevated shoreside experience with acclaimed food, service, and savings, you should definitely consider penciling in a weekend at The Setai in Miami Beach. Here’s how to do it right.
Have lunch al fresco at The Ocean Grill, then hit the beach
The summer menu at The Ocean Grill is an incredible deal on dining. Priced at $29 and available daily from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m., it includes your choice of appetizer, entree, and dessert from a specially curated selection of Mediterranean-inspired dishes like strawberry gazpacho, chicken paillard with caper citronette dressing, and creamy ice cream. After lunch, hit the beach and unwind with one of the hotel’s signature spiked coconut drinks. You don’t have to spend the night to enjoy shoreside amenities — the hotel is offering full-service beach chairs with umbrellas for $95 plus tax; the cost includes a $50 gift card towards food and drinks from the Ocean Grill or the pool and beach menu.
Book a spa service and enjoy even more savings
Valmont Spa at The Setai is currently offering 50-minute treatments from facials to massages as low as $109 through September 30 for Spa Month. What’s more, if you book a treatment longer than 60 minutes, you’ll get a complimentary $50 gift card which you can apply toward food and drinks. All spa treatments include access to the pool, based on limited availability, and the beach. For more information, you can contact the spa directly at 1-855-923-7098.
Indulge in Jaya’s Miami Spice menu for dinner
There’s no better way to wrap up a day of sea, sun, and relaxation than with a tantalizing dinner at Jaya. Through September 30 you can taste your way through some of Chef Vijayudu Veena’s mouthwatering creations with a Miami Spice menu starting at $39 per person. Dishes include a refreshing cucumber salad with avocado and cilantro-mint yogurt, salmon tartar with chili citrus dressing, chicken siu mai in a Szechuan glaze, or Jaya’s signature truffle dumplings with shrimp and scallops.
