Good Vibes Only at Pharrell and David Grutman’s Totally Pleased New South Seaside Hotel

Shared spaces incorporate a library which is “straight out of the intellect of Margot Tenenbaum,” says Williams, who calls The Royal Tenenbaums character played by Gwyneth Paltrow “a enormous inspiration for the total tone.” That room—awash in peach tones, clad in purely natural oak, and loaded with touches like rattan animal lamps (Grutman’s preferred is the giraffe), pineapple-motif cocktail tables, and a pink tufted sofa—exhibits the sensitive stability of cheer and magnificence that Fulk has mastered. “There’s normally a minor wink,” says Fulk. “A playfulness that will make you come to feel content when you go to all those spaces.”

The Goodtime Hotel’s library was motivated by the character Margot Tenenbaum of Wes Anderson’s cult vintage The Royal Tenenbaums

Strawberry Moon, the hotel’s everyday Mediterranean indoor/outside restaurant, so named for the lunar period of the moon when Grutman and Williams very first signed a deal on the space, prospects into the pool area. Flanked by trim cabanas and multiple coated bars that the Tenenbaum troupe would value, the out of doors location characteristics “at least” a dozen unique shades of pink, according to Fulk, and spans some 30,000 sq. toes, with specimen trees, plants, and vines hand-picked by landscape architect Jungles throughout.

Tropical murals, a marble accented concierge desk, and fringed lamps welcome attendees in the highly Instagrammable lobby created by Ken Fulk.

The sum of these stylish and eccentric parts—intentionally hyper-efficient visitor rooms that characteristic showers only, blackout curtains, and good storage and the collecting areas developed for, nicely, gathering—means that the Goodtime Resort is an instance of the “daylife” trend, where special attention is devoted to daytime about nighttime programming. Right here you can determine that as knocking back a violet-hued Purple Reign cocktail together with the hotel’s twin set of pink-striped swimming pools perspiring it out atop the very coveted (amid health and fitness buffs, anyway) MyBeast products in a rooftop indoor-outdoor health club or dancing less than the stars, it is about wellness and entertaining in every single and each and every location. “We’ve blended each strategies,” states Grutman. “The notion is for attendees to do and expertise what ever they want. Indulge in a bit of hedonism, and then indulge in the much healthier facet far too. That is the supreme good time.”

Moreover, asks Fulk, “How can you go to the pool and set on a pink leopard-print robe—or glimpse at the pool and see people today in a collection of pink leopard robes—and not smile? That, to me, is joyful! It’s happy.”
