Sol Wave House Hotel, which is located in Magaluf, is looking to turn social media networking into its own money maker. It is doing this by basing the whole theme of its hotel on social networking. In fact, people online are now calling it the first hotel to be “Twitter-themed.”
When people visit the Sol Wave House Hotel, they can log into their own Twitter accounts via the hotel’s Wi-Fi. That feature alone, however, is not what makes this hotel so unique. It is the fact that guests can share photos, chat and even flirt with other guests by using the hashtag #SocialWave when visiting the @SolWaveHouse Twitter page. This feature even allows guests to keep track of new guests that check in. This is helpful for friends who might be staying at the same hotel together.
The hotel even offers Twitter Party Suites. These are special rooms that sleep up to four people. People who are staying in this special suite get access to the hotel’s Twitter Concierges service. Not only that, these people also get to enjoy a free drink when they attend the Twitter Party. According to the hotel, the Twitter Party takes place at the hotel every Friday around the hotel’s large swimming pool. When staying in the Twitter Party Suites, guests can ask for room service, have their fridge restocked or make any other requests by simply using hashtags.
Sol Wave House Hotel says that the benefits of staying in its Twitter Party Suites do not end there. Guests staying in these suites also enjoy a 20 percent discount at the restaurants and bars within the Wave House, get a free bottle of cava, access to a mini bar that can be customized however the guests feel fit and access to VIP sunbeds.
One of the Twitter Concierges said, via Twitter, that the hotel’s main clients are young and social people. These are people who are always looking for the next best thing and want to share what they are doing with a virtual community. These new services offered by Sol Wave House Hotel allow guests to do just that.
For all of the people out there that are not into the whole, social networking thing, do not fear. The hotel has something for everyone. In fact, the hotel encourages face-to-face interaction between guests and employees as well. For example, the hotel features five different golf courses. It also has its own flow boarding machine, which allows people to surf on waves that are created by a machine.
The hotel’s bar, lounge and concert areas are great ways to interact with other guests as well. In fact, the hotel recommends that is guests use the Twitter service to introduce themselves to new people and then meet these people on its 2,500-square-foot terrace. The terrace has a swimming pool that overlooks the Mediterranean and a bar. This makes it the perfect place to let loose and interact with like-minded people.
