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 couldn't rate this any lower than 5 out of 5 as it was truly fantastic... But I do have a couple of things that could be improved on!! I had the 'beauty' treatment as a birthday present to myself... And it really was worth every penny!! The hair washing part was absolutely amazing- I might have paid €200 just... More

Came with a friend on my birthday, and spent a wonderful afternoon in utter relaxation. The receptionist was very nice and welcoming, very professional staff and luxurious environment; needless to say I felt like I was being treated like a queen in the few hours that I spent there ;) Definitely planning on coming back! Thank you, O'Kari!

The owner persuaded me to add a "facial" to my package for 50 euros more. The "facial" was one mask applied in the middle of another treatment. I kid you not. When I complained they did not offer to reimburse me. They argued that it was an expensive mask. Very uninpressive.

In November on a business trip to Paris I had a chance to try O'Kari. I had been to German Sauna but not a Hammam before, and Karima guided me. What a luxury. Treated as a 'guest' and the scrub plus hair and facial were just so relaxing. When in Paris I would totally go again. Thank you to the... More

I was so looking forward to a good gromage. I requested that she give a "hard" rub. My french is not great - but no one should leave an exfoliation spa with abrasions. Three days later I have welts on my calves and scars on my arms and I itch more than when I went. So not cool.

O'Kari H, Gérant at O'Kari Hammam, responded to this review

Dear Elizabeth I'm so sad to learn that. In fact be careful what you asked because you asked three time "more stronger body scrubs" so she did it. Why you don't tell me that when you leaving we could have remedied. However I think your rating is very harsh despite the welcome and the kindness of our team and me.... More

Like many reviewers, O'Kari was my first hammam experience. I was admittedly a tad nervous and am thankful for all the other reviewers' for sharing their experiences - really helped me to be armed with a bit of knowledge. What an unforgettable afternoon. I did the 2.5 hr package (it's listed on their site) and it included all that I... More

This place is amazing. 2 hour package reasonably priced for the quality of service I received. Beautiful building and amazing staff. As a first time visitor to a hammam all was explained in English. Book now!

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....

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.
