If you thought underwater restaurants were the height of cool, then you’ll want to check out AirBNB’s newest offering: an underwater bedroom with glass walls and some rather sharp toothed neighbors.

The opportunity comes thanks to Aquarium de Paris whose authorities have built the round, glass walled “room” which will be lowered into the aquarium’s shark tank for the stay.

The room will offer 360 degree views of the tank and all the fishy neighbors that you can handle.

Also included is a tour of the aquarium with Fred Buyle, a world record-breaking freediver, underwater photographer, and shark enthusiast.

The aim of providing this unique experience is to encourage people to learn more about sharks and how they are useful to the ecosystem. Alexis L. Powilewicz, CEO of Aquarium de Paris stated, “We’re thrilled to be the first aquarium in the world to offer this chance for people to be more than simply visitors, but to get such an ‘immersive’ experience. Sharks are essential for the health of marine ecosystem. If they were to disappear, it would be a major threat to the ocean’s ecosystem. It is therefore crucial to be able to observe them in order to better protect them.”

Three winners will be chosen to avail of a one-night stay on the 11th, 12th or 13th of April. Feeling lucky? Enter the contest here.
