David Grutman and Pharrell Williams will open a new resort at Atlantis Paradise Island

American musical artist Pharrell Williams and David Grutman of Groot Hospitality will open a new resort in the Bahamas next to Atlantis Paradise Island, called Somewhere Else.

Scheduled to open in 2024, this unique resort will offer 400 rooms and suites, a variety of dining experiences, a beach, and luxury amenities and activities. Guests will also have easy access to entertainment and dining options at Atlantis Paradise Island.


The new development is the third project between Williams and Grutman, who began their partnership with Swan, a Miami restaurant, before opening a boutique property in the same city, The Goodtime Hotel.

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

Atlantis Paradise Island is currently home to six different properties, including The Royal, The Coral, The Reef, The Cove, The Beach, and Harborside Resort, all of which offer different accommodation styles. Somewhere Else will be the seventh property.

“Teaming up with David Grutman and Pharrell to further evolve the resort is something we are extremely proud to embark on this year,” said Audrey Oswell, President and CEO of Atlantis Paradise Island. “We look forward to sharing the Somewhere Else experience with new and returning guests alike, which will be amplified by the culture and warm Bahamian hospitality found only at Atlantis Paradise Island.”
