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. « less

On the last day of my holiday in Paris I turned up at O'Kari - a day early! - for a two hour package. When Karima politely told me the Hammam was closed and that my reservation was for the next day I could barely hide my disappointment. To my great delight she took pity on me and opened up... More

This day spa is the most Devine experience I have ever had in a day spa. The steam room, the hot stone, the spa all made the ultimate experience and they are just the facilities you use along with your therapeutic treatment. I felt like a new woman upon completion. My face, body and hair felt like silk for days.... More

Very welcoming reception at this hammam!!!! Although it is a bit small ( American standards) they make a very efficient use of the space they have and everything is clean and well- kept. My daughter and I did a package - several are possible - that lasted a little over 2 hours. It was a lovely experience , finished off... More

I was staying in the best neighborhood in a wonderful apartment - the hot water heater broke. Solution? Go to a hammam! At O'Kari I got super lucky - the experience of getting squeaky clean and blissfully relaxed after steam, soap scrub rubdown, and hair washing in a pristine friendly (family run) aesthetic environment at a great price point was...

I booked the basic 2 hour package and ended up staying for 3 1/2. They made me feel very welcome. The staff are extremely professional. Best hammam experience I have had. Highly recommended to de-stress and relax.

I have never visited a Hammam before, so I must admit I'm a first timer with this review. But did I ever enjoy the experience! I checked in for three hours of bliss: hot steam, cool water, hot steam, total body/hair wash with oil treatment, scrub, hot steam, cool pool with lemon drink, hot steam, great massage, rest with hot...

I had my first hammam experience at O'Kari and absolutely loved it. If you've been to American spas, it might come as a bit of a shock--you have the no pressure option to go au naturel and you get massaged almost everywhere. I went by myself after almost a week of traveling with my family and did the O'Kari Basic... More

My girlfriend and I decided to finish our trip to Paris with an afternoon at O'Kari Hammam, and it was amazing. So relaxing, Karima so attentive and genuine, the atmosphere so welcoming, it couldn't have been more perfect. We booked the basic 2 hour package and ended up being there for 3 hours! Steam to jacuzzi to steam and back... More

…one problem is the language, we got by with our french but you need to know a little bit that's for sure. it is women only and the staff is very friendly. Small place, our first hammam experience was truly comfortable and relaxing. one of the best things was the hair treatment with almond oil. we booked the O'kari friends... More

I was lucky to have my Fiancè book this spa as a birthday present and what a gift it was! It was such a unique experience and I loved my therapist. The exfoliation and hair and face mask was soooo nice, and the massage at the end was very relaxing. I could have spent all day in there! My only... More
