The world of social media has exploded into almost all aspects of our lives and now The Sol Wave Hotel in Mallorca has become the first Twitter themed hotel.
Decorated with a blue and white colour theme, guests can tweet and hashtag to their hearts’ content. Using Twitter to check in, order room service (#FillMyFridge) and receive exclusive offers and events all through the private Twitter community app. Real life human interaction has been limited to the online world.
Hotel visitors are encouraged to tweet, share photos and send private messages and virtual kisses through #socialwave hashtag. The hotel also hosts a weekly #TwitterPoolParty and guests can stay in the #SocialPartySuites, which will sleep up to four people.
