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 went to the Hammam Spa on a Saturday afternoon. The moment you enter you feel you just stepped into a paradise of heat. The steam room is clean and spacious, and the jacuzzi is refreshing. The best part is the strong scrub followed by gentle massage with soap and the shampooing. The atmosphere is quiet and therapists are all... More

I didn't know what to expect when I entered but was pleasantly surprised. I don't speak French and was nervous about the communication, but got along just fine by talking to the right people who knew enough English to direct me. I did the two hour basic which was more than enough for me. Process is you enter into a... More

Absolutely amazing! I had never been to a hamman, so after I had read the reviews on TripAdvisor I made arrangements through my hotel to book a package at O'Kari. When I arrived at O'Kari I was graciously welcomed by the woman at the front desk. She advised me of what was going to happen and then escorted me to... More

Highly recommended for a luxurious getaway. The atmosphere was serene, the hammam was clean and very comfortable. In addition to being highly professional and skilled, the staff was sweet, welcoming and smiling. I chose the basic treatment package, and enjoyed every second of my stay. I will definitely visit O'Kari again.

I've visited Paris from Australia many times but never been to a hammam. I decided this time to give one a go and thankfully chose o'kari. Spent 3 relaxing hours there for 200 E and enjoyed the steam room, jaccuzi (a cold blast!), a full body scrub (haven't been so clean since I was born), hair treatment, facial and massage.... More

Let me start by telling you that I am a SPA addict. I need my fix at least once a week and since I travel all around the world I see a lot of SPAs. O'Kari is not the biggest, not the most luxurious, not the largest in Paris, but it is the one where twice so far, I found... More

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

Opera / Bourse

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.
