The Argentine netted a hat-trick as the Catalan giants saw off Deportivo, whose relegation from LaLiga was confirmed with the defeat.
Barca, meanwhile, secured their 25th LaLiga title and the seventh over the last 10 seasons, and after the game Messi expressed his pride at another league trophy.
"Very happy, winning this league brings great joy," he said, as quoted by Marca.
"We know how tough it is to win LaLiga. That's why we have to value it and celebrate it properly with all our people.
"It was a very special title for all of us because we are yet to lose any matches. We have had difficult moments and we overcame them without knowing the feeling of defeat and that is incredible.
The Blaugrana, who are still unbeaten in LaLiga so far, could become the first ‘Invincible’ side in the history of Spain’s top flight, if they can avoid defeat against Real Madrid, Villarreal, Levante and Real Sociedad in their four remaining fixtures.
"We have not lost a lot of matches, just one in the Copa del Rey and unfortunately one in the Champions League... It would be very good to win La Liga without losing," Messi added.
The 30-year-old took his LaLiga tally to 32 goal in 2017/18, overtaking Mohamed Salah at the top of the European Golden Shoe race.
