Come Check-In Bae – featuring 400 guest rooms and suites alongside a number of excellent dining outlets, here’s everything we know about Somewhere Else, Pharrell Williams and David Grutman’s exciting new Bahamas resort set to open in 2024



Singer Pharrell Williams and David Grutman of Groot Hospitality have announced a new partnership with Atlantis Paradise Island to open a brand-new luxe resort, set to welcome guests in 2024. Named Somewhere Else and designed to offer a slice of tropical paradise, the property will be located adjacent to Atlantis Paradise Island and will take over the current site of The Beach.

Large and spacious, Somewhere Else will feature over 400 guest rooms and suites alongside an array of vibrant, top-tier dining venues, lushly landscaped grounds, an oceanfront beach, multiple pools and recreation areas, luxury amenities and live entertainment.

An atmosphere of tropical modernism will be seen and felt throughout the resort; Shawn Sullivan, of David Rockwell’s award-winning global architecture and design firm Rockwell Group, is the lead designer on the project. Together with Grutman and Williams, this group is creating an enthralling oasis in and of itself – yet Somewhere Else will also be within easy reach of Atlantis Paradise Island’s myriad dining and entertainment options.

“Somewhere Else is going to be a one-of-a-kind resort,” said David Grutman, Founder, Groot Hospitality. “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.”

“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,” commented Audrey Oswell, President and Managing Director, 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.”

Further details to be announced later this year.
