On the heels of the successful launch of Miami’s Goodtime Hotel last year, Groot Hospitality founder David Grutman and singer/songwriter Pharrell Williams have unveiled plans to join forces on a second property. The Somewhere Else resort is being developed in partnership with Atlantis Paradise Island in the Bahamas and is slated to open in 2024.

“Teaming up with David Grutman and Pharrell to further evolve the resort is an endeavor we are incredibly proud to be embarking upon this year,” says Audrey Oswell, president and managing director of Atlantis Paradise Island. “We can’t wait to share the Somewhere Else experience with new and returning guests, which will be amplified by the culture and warm Bahamian hospitality that can only be found at Atlantis Paradise Island.”

With a design led by Shawn Sullivan of New York-based Rockwell Group, Somewhere Else will feature vibrant F&B concepts, landscaped grounds, and oceanfront beach access. Numerous pools and recreational areas will round out the property’s amenities, and there will be more than 400 guestrooms and suites on site.

“Somewhere Else is going to be a one-of-a-kind resort,” Grutman says. “Not only will it offer a major extension of the unforgettable and high energy experiences we deliver with Groot Hospitality, but also, a clear focus on nature and restorative elements. We’ll have something for everyone, yet Pharrell and I are making sure Somewhere Else is unlike anywhere else.”
