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.

If you want a massage while visiting Placencia, go here. I get massages pretty regularly and know a good massage from a bad one. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality and affordability of my massage at the secret garden. Don't hesitate to make your appointment. PS: the Secret Garden restaurant "downstairs" from the day spa was our favorite in... More

Myself and 3 other ladies booked appointments while on vacation and it was a wonderful massage experience. They accommodated us two at a time in this tropical treehouse treatment room. It was so calming and relaxing with the tropical breezes, soft music and soothing aromas. We were a mixed group. I am somewhat of a massage junkie, one of my... More

We visit Placencia every year. I had heard of Lee Nyhus' 'Secret Garden Massage Spa', and how good she was. Two years ago I gave my husband a gift certificate for a massage at the spa. Now every year he asks for a gift certificate at Lees' Secret Garden. I think I'll ask for the same next year!!!
