Lonely Planet review for Negombo
This is the place to come for a dose of pampering. Part spa resort, part botanical wonderland, with more than 500 exotic plant species, the Negombo’s combination of Zen-like thermal pools, hammam, contemporary sculpture and private beach on San Montano Bay tends to draw a younger crowd than many other Ischian spa spots.
There’s a Japanese labyrinth pool for weary feet, a decent tavola calda (snack bar), and a full range of massage and beauty treatments. Those arriving by car or scooter can park all day on site (car €4, scooter €2.50). For a free dip in the bay, follow the signs to the spiaggia (beach) out the front of Negombo.
