Twitter Hotel Redefines the Social Media Vacation
Kyana Gordon for PSFK Aug 1 2013
For vacationers seeking the solace of island life, disconnecting from a smartphone and all things tech is a welcome reprieve. But if your idea of paradise is mingling with other Tweetaholics, then the “first Twitter experience hotel” is for you.
Located on the Spanish island of Majorca, the 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.
Guests at Sol Wave tweet with each other by logging onto Twitter via to a special web app available only through the hotel’s Wi-Fi. Once inside, guests share pictures, send private messages, see who’s online, find out where other visitors are staying inside the hotel and send virtual kisses. Marco Fantón, Sol Wave House’s social media director, told TIME, “He sees the community as a fun and interactive extension of what guests are already doing on their vacations — showing off their trip using social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.”
They really drive home the Twitter theme at Sol Wave House with #TwitterPoolParty on Fridays where you can drink a Twitter-inspired cocktail or shot. And when guests break the ice, there is the Twitter Party Suite. These private party suites host up to four guests and come with bubbly, blue balloons, hashtag licorice and a mirror that provokes a tweet-worthy moment. Guests can make requests to have their minibars restocked with #FillMyFridge and send food and drink orders to others near the pool by tweeting @SolWaveHouse. To see a full list of Sol Wave’s amenities, be sure to check out the hotel’s website.
