Description: To bring the age-old traditions of the Hammam (steam room) to modern life...
To bring the age-old traditions of the Hammam (steam room) to modern life, and to transmit the precious values of this practice to other women – these are the desires that motivated Karisma Lasfar to share her culture and its history. The opening of O’Kari Hammam-spa was the fulfilment of these long-cherished aspirations.How much time do you have ? Karima wants to know if you have enough time to spare to receive the true Hammam experience. Two hours at least! And three would be much better! That’s because the Hammam experience at O’Kari is the polar opposite of all those “express” beauty treatments offered elsewhere.A sign of refinement and civilization in antiquity, the Hammam is an art of living, a rite dedicated to the harmony and the beauty of the body. This deserves all the time we can spare.

I showed up unannounced to O-Kari Hammam after searching for it unsuccessfully for over an hour (bring your Google Maps app with you!!) I hadn't bothered to make an appointment but they took me in anyway and I didn't wait at all before beginning the treatment (I got the Basic), though I did wait in between, but I didn't mind....

I just moved to Paris, and I needed a relaxing spa experience. After googling and reading review after review, I chose to spend 3 glorious hours at O'Kari. I had never been to a hammam, so I tried to read the helpful reviews on Yelp as well as other blogs. This is an amazing relaxing and cultural experience. This is... More

O'Kari Hammam is my first ever Hammam experience, and I am in love! As an American, I was somewhat nervous about the expected attire, but I had nothing to worry about. When you arrive they give you a paper underwear (thong) to wear and a terry cloth robe. If you are nervous about that, they have a modesty wrap that... More

Lovely hamman with excellent services - having experienced several in Paris this was especially nice as it is small and all female. Grommage and massage was excellent and I appreciate how attentive the staff was - even with my poor French and their limited english it was not difficult to communicate. If you understand the process of the hamman and... More

I visited this hammam two weeks ago, mainly because it had positive reviews. This place was Very easy to locate and in a charming courtyard. Receptionist was friendly and spoke English. I had no problem making an appointment for a 1.5 hr DECOUVERTE package. Kari, I believe that was her name, welcome me for my appointment and she was the... More

I received the Beaute treatment. I have never been to any kind of spa before and wanted a full experience. This was great from the greeting until the end. Exactly as advertised both in text and pictures. I never felt uncomfortable and enjoyed the natural products used for the scrubbing, wraps and massage. All of the staff were very nice... More

I just got back from my first massage/spa day ever, and it was THE best experience I've had in Paris. I've been here since February on study abroad, and I decided to treat myself before I go home next week. The staff were so wonderful and kind. I'm here studying French, but a couple years of classes evidently didn't give... More

My three daughters and I had the most wonderful experience at the O'Kari spa while in Paris. One of the most memorable experiences in my life! From the beginning to the end it was heaven. The owner Karima Lasfar was so friendly and welcoming, very helpful throughout the whole process and spoke English for those who don't speak French. The... More

I booked two O'Kari Moon packages for myself and a friend. The price was similar to other spas but in fact seems to offer a more complete experience. We were warmly received in this well hidden gem. Its location in a small building actually gives it you a feeling of intimacy. All the employees were delightful and made us very... More

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
