Relax and be one with the ocean

My second visit to this off the beaten path spa with excellent ratings it deserves. Carmen's touch was just the right amount of firm with soothing. You leave there a new person.

The massage table is open to the ocean, and the breezes. Wonderful, relaxing experience. They take cash, credit cards or you can charge it to your room.

Purchases a special - 60 minute massage and pedicure. Carmen was awesome and the massage was just enough pressure. The breeze on the pier provides enough breeze that you do not get hot (which I was worried about). My pedicure turned out good as well. Great place & great people - total relaxation.

I thought the location was perfect. The little bungalow setup was absolutely adorable. I opted to have my services outside and the wind felt so nice. I also enjoyed listening to the ocean. The facility was very clean. The massage oils that were used were nice as they didn't feel too oily. A few of my friends had a pedicure... More

This is one of many massages I had during a 4 week trip in Central America. It was good and in fact if we weren't leaving the next day, I would have come back

I enjoyed a 60 minute massage by Shajiri at Ocean Essence. It was wonderful. A highlight of my trip to Belize. I have traveled extensively and this is one of the very best massages I have received anywhere. I also sensed, as with all of Belize, that she was relaxed and not watching the clock.... She was able to loosen... More

Sam, Jackie, and Jessica are well-trained, strong young women who (amazingly!) seem to really love what they do---considering they must administer to scores of sweaty tourists...some chubby and oldish...yes, that would be we. "Relaxing Belize massage" enabled my husband and me, along with another couple, to continue our arduous rounds of restaurants and drinking establishments. We will return!! PS: for... More

My wife and two daughters went and loved it! Great people, real pros, and when I came to pick them up I was amazed at the professionalism and level of comfort they offered. PLUS, nice people.

We found this place online due to a rainy windy day on the island so were looking for something else to do. We are super glad we did!! The massages were excellent!! Location amazing! Sara and her husband, the owners, are the coolest, nicest people you will meet. You can't go wrong getting a treatment done here. A massage listening... More
