The Setai Fifth Avenue Launches Elite Helicopter Programs

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

New York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

The calendar may have turned past Labor Day, but New Yorkers know that some of the most romantic beach outings in the Hamptons unfold during the fall. Fall weekends are also a time when thoughts turn to crisp apples, the gold and red of New England fall foliage, and a cozy fireplace. Always ready to make the best of New York and its surroundings seamlessly available to hotel guests from around the world, The Setai Fifth Avenue, a Capella Managed Hotel, has unveiled two new luxury experiences for fall. The hotel has partnered with luxury helicopter service HeliFlite, renowned East Hampton, N.Y. restaurant Race Lane, and legendary Stockbridge icon, The Red Lion Inn, to offer two remarkable and exclusively customized experiences. The experiences combine a stay at The Setai Fifth Avenue and its unparalleled access to New York City for business or leisure, with the added enjoyment of virtually “instant” access to the shops, beaches and fine dining of East Hampton or the quintessentially American village of Stockbridge, Massachusetts.

The ‘Hamptons by Helicopter’ Experience
• The experience includes a two-night stay in a luxurious “Avenue Apartment” at The Setai Fifth Avenue. This one-bedroom suite features separate kitchen, dining and living areas, a Duxiana king size bed, Pratesi lines, an oversized Zuma deep soaking tub, glass enclosed floor to ceiling rain shower, an Espresso maker, and a host of other amenities.
• On the morning after your first night’s stay, following a sumptuous in-room breakfast, guests will be whisked to a nearby helipad via the hotel’s Maserati for the 45-minute helicopter flight to East Hampton. This luxury helicopter from HeliFlite, is reserved exclusively for you.
• In East Hampton, a car and driver is at your service throughout the day. A gourmet picnic basket awaits from Race Lane restaurant, in order to enjoy a foray on the beach in style.
• Follow your beach outing with shopping in East Hampton, at Cynthia Rowley, Magaschoni, Gucci, Ralph Lauren or the off-beat Turpan, among many others.
• To complete the unforgettable day, an intimate table has been set for you at Race Lane in East Hampton, where guests will enjoy cocktails by the fire and a fabulous four-course dinner before heading back by helicopter to the bright lights of New York City and The Setai Fifth Avenue.
• Before settling in for the second night of their stay, guests can enjoy inspiration (and a nightcap) at Bar on Fifth, where a bottle of champagne has been chilling for their arrival, and “cool” jazz performances are in full swing.

The ‘New England Fall Foliage Flight’ Experience
• The experience includes a two-night stay in a luxurious “Avenue Apartment” at The Setai Fifth Avenue. This one-bedroom suite features separate kitchen, dining and living areas, a Duxiana king size bed, Pratesi lines, an oversized Zuma deep soaking tub, glass enclosed floor to ceiling rain shower, an Espresso maker, and a host of other amenities.
• On the morning after your first night’s stay, following a sumptuous in-room breakfast, guests will be whisked to a nearby helipad via the hotel’s Maserati for the 45-minute helicopter flight to Stockbridge, the quintessential “Norman Rockwell” New England village. This luxury helicopter from HeliFlite is reserved exclusively for you.
• In Stockbridge, a car and driver is at your service throughout the day. A gourmet picnic basket awaits from The Red Lion Inn, in order to enjoy your fall foliage outing in style.
• Follow your excursion with a visit to the Norman Rockwell Museum itself, or to Chesterwood, the National Trust for Historic Preservation home of legendary sculptor (Lincoln Memorial) Daniel Chester French. Or, indulge in some Holiday shopping on the charming main street of Stockbridge.
• To complete the unforgettable day, an intimate table has been set for you at the Red Lion Inn, where guests can enjoy cocktails by the fire and a fabulous four-course dinner before heading back by helicopter to the bright lights of New York City and The Setai Fifth Avenue.
