For visitors seeking the solace of island life, disconnecting from a smartphone and all things tech is a welcome reprieve. But, in contrast 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 WiFi. Once inside, guests share pictures, send private messages, see who’s online and where they’re located 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 and 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 such as filling the minibar with #FillMyFridge and send food and drink orders to others by the pool via a tweet to @SolWaveHouse. For other amenities and all the hotel has to offer be sure to check out their website.
