Are you addicted to social media? Do you know your +1's from your likes? If so, we might have something that's right up your street! Targeted at the social media generation, the Sol Wave House Hotel on Palmanova beach in Mallorca offers a completely new hotel experience. Connect up to the hotel's Wi-Fi and join the hotel's 'virtual community' on Twitter by using the #Socialwave hashtag.
Although hashtags are certainly not a new way of interacting with a brand, TV show, celebrity or business, this is definitely a hotel with a twist.
Two hotel staff members are on hand 24/7 to monitor the Twitter hashtag, generate conversation and meet any room service requests. Forget the telephone, we'll order 2 extra pillows and breakfast in bed via Twitter please!
Every part of the hotel is designed to promote conversation; from the modern and unusual décor to flowboarding on the artificial waves in the hotel's pool, users can tweet about their experience using the hashtag and interact with other hotel guests. This use of hashtags is a great idea for those who are perhaps travelling solo or simply looking to make new friends while away.
However, if you're after a slice of luxury while away, why not take advantage of their second hashtag #TwitterPartySuites and enjoy VIP hammocks, a customizable mini bar, welcome champagne, drinks deals and discount offers. If that's not enough, why not come along to the weekly exclusive #TwitterPoolParty and enjoy a free drink!
