Twitter Hotel Redefines the Social Media Vacation

For vacationers looking for a dream island vacay where they can relax, soak up the sun and ditch the smartphone for a few days then visiting Sol Wave House on the Spanish island of Majorca is not for you. Sol Wave House harnesses the power of social media as a way to enhance its overall hotel experience. Opening just a year ago, the hotel features Twitter-themed rooms, drinks and a virtual community called #SocialWave that guests can use to interact and flirt with one another.

Holidaymakers obsessed with social media are invited to check into the Sol Wave House Hotel and use hashtags to contact staff and interact with other guests.

As a guest you’ll log into a virtual Twitter community via the hotel’s WiFi and use your own Twitter account and hashtag #hashSocialWave to connect, interact, share photos and even flirt with other guests.

The @SolWaveHouse Twitter page also lets visitors keep an eye on who has checked in. But rather than being an online experience, the hotel encourages you to interact in real-life and try cool pool sports too.

Sol Wave House Hotel boasts 184 modern suites, a 2,500 square-metre sea-facing VIP terrace, swimming pools, pools with artificial waves to practice flowboarding (a hybrid sport of surfing and snowboarding), Californian-style restaurants, lounges and concert areas for live music.

The first Twitter concierge at Sol Wave House told Rex Features: “Our main clients are young and social people, who are always looking for new experiences to share with a growing virtual community. With #hashSocialWave we wanted to meet this aspiration.”
