Hammam de la Mosquee de Paris
Relax in these picturesque Turkish baths with rose colored marble pillars and mosaics. After a shower, lather yourself with the traditional black soap and let it dry for about 20 minutes to naturally exfoliate the skin. Sweat it out on the heated stones and chill out in the Jacuzzi. An invigorating rubdown removes dead skin. Finally, after a relaxing massage and the essential mint tea, one leaves clean, perfumed and entirely refreshed. Situated on the site of the Paris Mosque, there is also a restaurant, tearoom and a bazaar.
Beautiful experience, so relax. Enjoy the change in temperatures, from hot (steam) to chiller (jacuzzi) and once again to the steam. Make a friend for a good massage giving it each other. Tuesday and Sundays are the days reserved for men. The place, I mean the building is also beautiful (outside and inside). Don't miss it in your next visit to Paris, the City of Lights. Bravo for the Arabian culture shown in this remarkable place !!
This is a must for me every time I visit Paris. The geometric artwork inside the Hammam causes my imagination to soar and I pretend I am part of a harem. Laying on the hot marble is soothing. I've had it all. Grommage, massage, tea. I find it reasonable, rejuvinating and a great escape. The food is good at the restaurant as well and I love the tea garden too.
We were 3 cousins sitting in the marble steam room, pouring water over each other,being scrubbed clean, even inside your ears by a motherly type, followed by an oil massage & mint tea. Go for the afternoon with a friend or two. Stay for couscous in the restaurant.
I went last to the Paris hammam last year and it's almost the first place I'm going to when I get off the plane next month. The marble steam room is wonderful -- the black soap a surprisingly good exfoliator -- but the best part of the all is the gommage, as close to a belt-sander as my skin has ever experienced! At the end of 4 hours my 40-year-old skin was as soft as the proverbial baby's bottom. In some ways the hammam is not very glamourous or serene (when I had my massage the women were arguing with each other quite emphatically in a mix of French and Arabic) but this is an experience you will never forget -- and at a price significantly lower than it costs to visit the hammam in my hometown. Best to go with a friend, or a group, and bring your bathing suit (at least a bathing suit bottom).
It relaxes you and gets all the tension out so your refreshed. The best time to visit is in the winter because you get chilly and it warms you up and you dont even know its winter any more. But belice me youll love and it has heaven food.
i visited the hammam in october at the end of a two-week visit to paris. it was a heavenly experience among a sorority of women taking time to care for their skin. i felt almost as if i had been transported back to a different period in time. although it's a relatively simple activity, sitting in steamrooms, lathering on the black soap, rinsing, cooling off in the little tub, the optional gommage and massage, etc. it is an extraordinarily luxurious and sensuous experience that leaves you with an inner sense of well-being that lasts for several days. i cannot rave enough about how much i loved the hammam.
