I went to Lee to treat myself to a morning Swedish massage and was not prepared for how amazing of a massage I got. Even with my budget, the splurge was worth every penny. Lee's hands are magical and she doesn't leave one part of the body untouched (appropriate areas, of course). I left her studio so relaxed and at... More

If you let it, Placencia will chill you out. But if you want to insure you get there quickly, let Lee help. She provides a strong, blissful massage that left me relaxed and happy in the treehouse of the Secret Garden. Most Caribbean/Central American massage practitioners do not have Lee's professional talent for deep and soothing work. We would highly... More

I happened to see the sign in front of the Secret Garden, walked a short path to a little gazebo where Lee has a sign up board for massage. The hour I spent under Lee's strong, talented hands was a highlight of my vacation. She has a gift.

"Hands down" one of the best massage experiences I have had in Placencia. A beautiful setting in the tree canopy, gentle breezes, curtains fluttering like butterfly wings, early morning background sounds of a village coming to life. All of the wonderful ambiance aside, Lee is a talented massage therapist, who knows her business. The pain and stiffness in my neck... More

My husband and I had a fabulous 90 minute couples massage at Secret Garden! We're still in Belize and hope to find time to schedule another massage. Thank you Lee!

My experience at Secret Garden Massage was amazing! I felt so good after leaving Lee's relaxing treetop studio, I went back again before leaving Placencia. I have had many massages at many spas and at individual studios, and Lee is very talented, the setting is relaxing, and the price is right.

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
