If you’re in Paris this winter, duck into one of these relaxing spots to experience this centuries-old tradition from France’s former North African colonies. Essentially a very steamy, humid sauna, hammams are a great way to warm up and pamper yourself during the holiday season.

Who doesn’t want to warm up during the cold and often gray days that come with winter in Paris? And where better than in a steamy hammam? Take your pick of an exfoliating facial or relaxing massage, and stay for the day, or at least the afternoon.

This centuries-old tradition stemming from France’s former North African colonies will undoubtedly transport you to another world, one of rejuvenation and tranquility. Here’s my list of top steamy escapes in the heart of Paris, each one a unique sensory experience that will help you forget about the weather altogether.

1. Hammam Les Cent Ciels Paris

7 Rue de Nemours, 75011 Paris

This luxurious Paris spa and hammam has two locations in the capital city as well as three others in Strasbourg, Lille, and Bordeaux. Once you enter the Hammam Les Cent Ciels, you may never want to leave, especially during chilly winter days. Lose yourself in the hammam for a few blissful hours and make sure to try the gommage (body scrub).

2. Aux Bains Montorgueil

55 Rue Montorgueil, 75002 Paris

This clandestine hammam was once only used by Moroccan royalty and was a well-kept secret for years. Their products are all natural, produced locally, and smell good enough to eat. Yes, I tasted my mask at Aux Bains Montorgueil and can attest to this!

3. O’Kari

22 Rue Dussoubs, 75002 Paris

This Rive Droite hammam’s wellness rituals combine Algerian traditions with modern luxuries. Instead of planning a girls’ night at the bar, head here for the perfect afternoon or evening escape with friends. You’ll float home in a state of bliss.
