Since many people feel an increasing need to disconnect from internet, several hotels have launched various ‘digital detox’ programmes, each of which has a specific anti-connection formula.

What about the opposite concept: does any hotel exist of social networks addicts? Now, it does! It’s time to tweet: social junkies are now able to enjoy their holiday by spending more time on social networks.

Sol Wave Hotel, the first hotel that fully capitalizes on Twitter, has recently opened its doors in Mallorca, Spain. The hotel concept is meant to facilitate social relationships in the hotel, gives access to games connected to Twitter, photo booths and free WiFi areas. For the #Socialwave community, it’s now possible know who is where, send ‘virtual kisses’, and participate in #TwitterPoolParty on Fridays. If they break the ice, they’ll even be able to access the #TwitterPartySuite

The hotel is completely donning the colors of Twitter: a white and blue desk, blue balloons and twitter-inspired cocktails. The hotel even offers such features as requesting something using the mention @SolWaveHouse or ordering alcohol with the hashtag #FillMyFridge.

Sol Wave Hotel has managed to make a name for itself thanks its original positioning and its specific target public, namely social network addicts who are looking for fun and friends. Yes, Twitter can be a good way (excuse?) to connect people together in a physical place.

Yet, the concept of the hotel pushes its clients to exhibit their holiday—and thus unveil aspects of their private life on the Internet, which could perhaps lead them not to live in the moment

What do you think about it? Would you like to try the Twitter Experience in this hotel?
