Sleeping with Sharks

I had the chance to visit the first sub aquatic room designed by Airbnb. The Aquarium of Paris hosted for 3 days the winners of the first-ever sleepover in the Shark Aquarium. The room for the night is unlike any other ever built: a peaceful enclosure with a large cylindrical bed and breathtaking, immersive views of the sharks. The event was hosted by Fred Buyle, a world record breaking freediver, underwater photographer, and shark enthusiast. 

Opened in 1867 and located in front of the iconic Eiffel Tower, the Aquarium of Paris was the first built anywhere in the world. The transparent bedroom will live on even after the event, acting as an observatory for biologists to study the behaviors of these fishs.

Huge thanks to the team of the Aquarium and  Airbnb for the invitation.
