Airbnb is offering the first ever underwater bedroom in romantic Paris. Sounds sweet? Think again, it's inside a shark tank! 


Sharks are, albeit feared by many, truly remarkable, and yes, also quite friendly creatures. And three people and their guests are now being offered a unique, don't-miss-it opportunity to spend un unforgettable free night (literally) inside the shark tank of Aquarium de Paris, with the only thing separating the guests from their awe-inispiring neighbours is the 360-degree transparent wall. It actually sounds so exciting we believe we could hardly catch any sleep at all! 

To win a sleepover on April 11th, 12th or 13th at the Shark Aquarium, your task is simple. Write to Airbnb, providing information about yourself, where you live and why it is you who deserves a bed beside sharks. Your submission of 50-550 characters or less in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian or Portuguese and 50-300 character or less in Chinese (Simplified or Traditional), Japanese or Korean. Entries are due by 11.59 p.m. CET on April 3rd, 2016.

According to Airbnb listing, you need to meet certain criteria in order to claim your reward: you must be over the age of 18 and physically fit to climb a ladder in and out of the bedroom. Moreover, the winner and their guest must not exceed a combined weight of 190 kilograms or 418 lbs for safety reasons. Of course, the winners must be available to travel to Paris and spend the night on April 11-13.

House rules for staying in the underwater bedroom, immersed in three million liters of water and plunged 10 meters deep, are quite amusing. For example, it is recommendable not to see 'Jaws' before arriving to the shark tank, sleepwalking, diving and night swimming are off limits, as is eating the chum. Visitors are also advised to keep their heads and feet in the bedroom at all times.

Tempted? Try your luck! Sleeping with the sharks could only be a click away...
