My Day at a Paris Hammam: Les Bains du Marais

paris-hamman

Story and Photos by Richard Nahem, Eye Prefer Paris Correspondent

I received a generous gift certificate from my friends to Les Bains du Marais for the hammam, a massage, and manicure. Looking forward to some R & R, if only for a few hours, I made my appointment on Friday afternoon just in time to unwind from a long and hectic week.Located on rue des Blancs Manteaux, I walked into the reception area with its handsome dark wood kiosk and wall cases lined with enticing beauty products in seductive packaging. The gentle receptionist said to go and change, relax in the hammam for a while and then the masseuse would come and get me for my massage. I changed into a plush, oversized white terry bathrobe and rubber slippers and went to the café first. I ordered a mint tea and it was kind of decadent hanging out in a bathrobe in the middle of the day and also funny being surrounded by other men wearing the same. The men all seemed to know each other and I concluded this s was probably a weekly ritual.

hamman-in-parisI went into the large hammam lined with beautiful tiles and I chilled out for a while, inhaling the intoxicating steam. About 30 minutes later, the masseuse called me and laid me on a table, vigorously scrubbing me first with delicious smelling black soap body gel with olive oil. The deep cleansing gel with orange nectar and hibiscus scent is a traditional hammam cleanser used for thousands of years. She then rinsed me with warm water and proceeded to strenuously massage me and the whole treatment took about 20 minutes. A far cry from the slow, relaxing 1-hour Asian massages I was used to, nonetheless, I felt energized.

Next was my manicure, and the manicurist did a bang up job on my cut-up cuticles, which hadn’t seen the likes of her in many years.

I walked out of Les Bains du Marais invigorated and can’t wait to return to this relaxing urban oasis soon.
