Found the atmosphere to be very relaxing and therapist outstanding. She knew the exact amount of pressure to use in each area and spent the right amount of time on areas that needed more attention. Never felt any discomfort as she worked on knots or tight muscles. The location fit the name of the spa perfectly as it was a... More

We made sure to get a couples massage on our first morning in Belize. Lee stayed in prompt email correspondence and fit us in exactly when we wanted. The massage was awesome and it sounded like we were in the trees surrounded by birds. We agreed that we definitely could've stayed for 2 hours!! I will be booking again upon... More

The location of this place is amazing! Lots of hanging trees in the heart of town, up in the treetops. Once the fans and music start all other sound is drowned out. I worried about being so hot during the massage but the fans did the job. Definitely a nice relaxing thing to do for yourself while visiting placencia.

My husband and I had the 1 hour couples massage our final day in Placencia. I normally prefer outdoor massages while on vacation so despite being inside, being able to hear the birds made for a very relaxing massage. Made it seem like we were still in the rain forest. The massages were fantastic and the price was right on... More

Lee came to the villa I had rented to do my massage. She will make house calls if there are at least 3 people. I have had massages all over the world and this one ranked right up there. I have a chronic shoulder problem and she made it feel much better. She used just the right amount of pressure... More

I really needed a massage to loosen up my shoulders and Juana (sp?) provided relaxing relief. She knew how to warm up the muscles, work on the knots, and then cool down the muscles to prevent excessive soreness. I have had tons of massages and The Secret Garden was definitely in my top ten!

I went to secret garden and got the signature combo massage which consisted of Swedish massage, hot rock massage, facial, scalp massage, and foot scrub and massage. I have had a lot of body work done and this was absolutely fantastic. Highly recommended!

As a new year gift to myself, decided to treat myself to a massage - luckily I was able to book the last appointment of the day! I had the 90 min combo treatment - hot stones, deep tissue, facial and foot scrub. It was absolutely amazing! I am a veteran of massage therapy and this was one of the... More

This is the second time I have been here, each time having a different person work on me and they were both fantastic! I've had massages from all over the world and have yet to find one better.

Lee and her additional massage therapist did a fantastic job of getting knots out and giving my daughter and I relaxing massages. The atmosphere was very relaxing and peaceful - even with being less than a block off the main road. There are more massage places then you'd think in Placencia ~ I highly recommend The Secret Garden. Lee was... More
