My wife and I recently returned from our trip to Placencia and have to say one of the best things about the trip was our couples massage with Lee from the Secret Garden. After rushing right up to our vacation, the slow Swedish massage was exactly what we needed to help unwind enough to more fully enjoy our vacation. Thank... More

Fantastic massage. The owner, Lee, runs the place out of her home. It's not AC but it's up on the top floor, with sea breezes and ceiling fans. It was certainly on a par with some of the massages I got at the big hotels but less than half the price. Easy to find as the Secret Garden is located... More

Lee gave me a foot (includes calves) massage while I was in Placencia in April/May of this year and it was lovely and relaxing. She used pillows to support areas that needed it so I would be most comfortable, and the scents, music, and atmosphere made it a tranquil space to heal. I really enjoyed chatting and getting to know... More

Lee gave two of us fabulous massages and facials. We were both so relaxed and enjoyed the ocean breezes and soothing wind chimes. Best massages we have ever had & we most definitely will be back!

My husband & I started our vacation off with the 90 minute hot stone massage. It was amazing and we decided to end the trip with a deep tissue from Secret Garden. If you are a spa junky like me, your first glance of the place will cause pause. Once u take your American lenses off and surrender to the... More

I'm not new to massages. I'm constantly pushing myself and therefore constantly getting massages to ease my aching muscles. My girlfriend and I got a couples massage and while I can't speak for her (although she just gave me two thumbs up) I was thoroughly impressed. She worked the knots out and did such a great job that I booked... More

The other 5 star reviews for Lee are right, her massage is fantastic and at a great price. The atmosphere was very relaxing. She was able to massage out the huge knots and stress in my shoulders. Recommend adding a Secret Garden Spa massage to your itinerary when visiting Placencia.

My husband and I have received massage therapy for over 25 years for the benefit of better health. We believe strongly that it is medicine for our bodies, mind and spirit. Though professional massage therapists are trained the same in most all areas, each therapist has their own touch and areas of massage therapy that they consider the most important.... More

A beautiful peaceful setting. Set back for Wallens Grocery store and the pharmacy in the heart of Placencia village. Had a wonderful facial. Will return for a massage. A must go.
