Where to Relax in Paris Featured

Paris comes with a few strings attached, which involve plenty of events, sightseeing, walking, shopping and bar hopping. So, don't feel guilty if you feel like taking a break and treating yourself to some pampering. It is probably well deserved and something worth experiencing while in the French capital.

Chic is the best possible word to describe the essence and ambiance of Ken Club, urban fitness center and spa. With an annual limit of just 1,000 members, there is always room on the treadmill or in the hammam to indulge in yourself.

Whether you’re travelling with kids or solo, for business or pleasure, you can channel the yogini spirit on the go, with a schedule of classes at Tiger Yoga Club that runs 7 days a week. Enjoy three locations across town, with children’s classes available too. The ‘Oriental’ hammam-exotic heaven, for females only, is called O’Kari. The place is clean, calm and offers a lavish experience for those looking for a tender massage, a glorious bath or an Aleppo soap body cleansing.
