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.

My friend and I had been traveling with backpacks for a month and were in desperate need of a spa day. I called 4 or 5 time to coordinate the visit and the owner was very patient and spoke to me in English. The spa facilities were wonderful and the whole experience was rejuvenating. What made it absolutely perfect was... More

I questioned my decision to spend three hours, out of my three very short days in Paris, at a spa/hammam but I realized quickly it was exactly what I should be doing! I selected the basic beauty package and added on a facial. It was a very hot day but the steam baths still felt amazing! I left feeling relaxed... More

We encountered this spa after reading reviews on trip advisor and I must say the ratings reflect the level of service all round. The staff were polite, friendly and professional and the spa experience is sensational. The hammam and scrub afterwards is equatable to the elite Turkish hammams I have visited. And the relaxation massage more of a therapeutic delight.... More

From the moment I stepped into O'Kari with my friend, I felt welcomed and taken care of. The entire team greeted us and made sure to show us around and describe what was going to happen throughout our visit (it was my first hammam experience). When we arrived, the sweet guy at the desk immediately explained, in English, that one... More

The most relaxing experience! I have never felt so clean and renewed. The staff was excellent and the atmosphere was so calm. I can highly recommend it if you want to treat yourself and someone you care about.

I was in Paris for a week, and all the walking around on schlepping my stuff had taken its toll on my back. I booked a scrub package here one afternoon, and it was the best decision!! The staff is extremely friendly and attentive, and the hammam is beautiful and relaxing. It is a little bit small compared to some... More

I'm a spa snob, and have been rubbed by the best from San Fran to Beijing to New York to London, and I can say with confidence this was the most relaxing, intense, nourishing and heavenly spa experience I've ever had.

I've visited the O'Kari hammam as a last stop of my holiday and it was simply heavenly. The ladys care in the most wonderful way about your wellbeing and guide you through the sequenze of steam room, scrub, shampooing the hair and a massage, so you have to think about nothing. I had a hair abd face mask additionly and... More

Truly a lovely afternoon. Such attention to detail. We booked in advance from Australia, and the ladies welcomed us with open arms. The paper g-string gave us something to laugh about. (Essential for modesty) We enjoyed the "basic package" and I can't recommend it highly enough. Everything I hoped it would be. Thank you so much 💜

After carefully researching spas and hammams, I thought this would be the perfect gift to my girlfriend who enjoys relaxation venues whilst being very picky on the places she would consider especially when it involves some type of intimacy. She told me she found the staff very professional and the service was very good. Considering the French have generally little... 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.
