Underwater bedroom surrounded by sharks

shark bed

(From Lost at e Minor) At the Aquarium de Paris, there’s an underwater bedroom that lets you have a sleepover with the ocean’s apex predators.

The suite comes with glass walls that give guests a 360-degree panoramic view of their 35 ‘roommates’ living in the ten-metre deep shark tank.

The offer is part of AirBnb’s promotion of its first underwater accommodation, and the one-night stay comes with a complimentary meal and a tour of the aquarium.

More importantly, the three lucky winners will also learn from underwater photographer and freediver Fred Buyle. As host, Buyle will teach visitors about shark conservation and how widely misunderstood these beautiful creatures are.

You can head on over here to find out more about the contest. People who’ve just seen Jaws need not apply.
