In what will be the company's first-ever underwater bedroom, guests can sleep 32 feet below the surface in a room defined by a cylindrical glass wall designed to give a 360-degree view of aquatic life.

Contestants can win a one-night stay in the underwater oasis by entering Airbnb’s limited-time contest. A round trip to Paris (economy class tickets), a private visit and tour of the Aquarium de Paris, a private dinner for two in the aquarium and breakfast the morning after the stay are also included in the winnings. Each winner is allowed one guest.

Interested travelers must write about a unique reason they should be afforded the opportunity to sleep with the fierce animals in 50-550 words in order to win the underwater stay for two one night between April 11 and April 13. Entries will be evaluated for "originality," "creativity" and "spirit of the submission."

The special offering was designed to teach people more about sharks, which Airbnb and Aquarium de Paris believe are the most misunderstood animals in the world.  

"Avoid seeing Jaws before your sleepover," Airbnb jokes in a section of the contest rules.

Three contest winners will be selected on April 9 and announced on social media. 

At least one media outlet has speculated that the whole thing is an elaborate April Fool's Day prank
