69 Shades of Desire Contest

2 nights at The Eden and a free photo session!
Innovation and creativity are the key to victory.

How to participate

The ’69 Shades of Desire’ contest invites couples to share a photo on our Facebook page. Participants must have an active account and present an outfit that best represents the contest theme, generating the highest number of “likes” and shares. Additionally, participants are asked to describe their ideal night at The Eden, detailing their desires and expectations.

In the event that couples choose not to show their faces on the social network, they must send the original photo via private message to confirm its authenticity. This way, we can get in touch to start organizing their visit to The Eden and the delivery of their prizes.

All participants declare and accept that their participation in the contest is voluntary and at their own responsibility. The organizer will not be responsible in any way for any non-compliance by participants with the participation guidelines.
