What is a Luxury Rehab?

Luxury Rehab, a misleading term

A true luxury rehab guarantees confidentiality, bespoke one-to-one treatment and personalised service by the highest possible calibre of practitioners set in a completely private and luxurious environment.

The term “luxury rehab” was originally coined about 18 years ago to describe a new, and at the time radical, way of helping people suffering from mental illness and substance dependency – One-to-one single client treatment in private and luxurious surroundings.

It differentiated itself from the only other offerings at that time which were hospital style clinics and a plethora of group therapy style rehabs.

Since then the term luxury rehab has been adopted by pretty much every rehab providing little more than just a mattress on the floor.

Private rooms alone do not a luxury rehab make and they are certainly not a guarantee of luxury treatment, individualised care or anything close to a completely confidential service.

Genuine luxury rehabs offer not just private rooms but 5 star private villa accommodation and a bespoke one-to-one luxury treatment experience that went as far as private chefs for each client. They are specialised treatment model and not an add-on offering to an existing group therapy style rehab.

With all this clutter perhaps a more accurate description of the luxury rehab service, and the term we prefer to use, is Luxury Therapeutic Retreat.

If you are looking for a bespoke solution to mental illness and/or substance dependence with confidentiality assured and one-to-one treatment set in your own 5 star villa accommodation please contact us now.

There are very few companies in the world that genuinely provide this uncompromising level of bespoke service and Istana is one of them.

And naturally private chefs are part of the service!

I arrived at Istana Barbados in a terrible condition, alcohol had brought me to my knees, I was on the brink of blowing my professional reputation and losing my family. The medical team nursed me through a long detox and the rest of the team put me on the path to recovery. Two of the team flew back to New York with me and stayed for 2 months to help me adjust to this new life. From beginning to end a life changing experience from the best team of people. Just fantastic. Thank you.

Istana Jiwa is a place for profound and permanent transformation. I found the team to be working at the highest level in their fields. Many have also been on the dark side of addiction and come out the other side; they, if anyone, know the pathway to release. And that’s this brilliantly conceived, bespoke rehab concept which accommodates you in a 5 star private villa with every whim catered for, then drills down with proper therapy for lasting change. Coming through addiction is brutal but here there is shelter from the storm - a beautiful place to rest and get the space to heal, with 24/7 care and love. It’s expensive but what price sanity?

I started with Istana Jiwa in pretty ordinary shape; marriage had collapsed and I was self medicating with anything I could find to suppress the deep sense of despair and depression. The program transformed me – physically and emotionally. I spent 60 days in the program working on finding myself and I left feeling genuine hope and a real fortitude to tackle life again.

I went to Istana Jiwa to reset my mind and change the way I was living. Stress had got the better of me, I was partying too hard and I was close to blowing up my career and losing my family. Amazingly I found some like minded souls in the Istana Jiwa team, people who had lived my life in the corporate arena, who understood me and helped me recalibrate my life. I now feel better than ever before, and I even gave up smoking there!

For my sins I have been to a few treatment centres around the world, nothing comes close to Istana Jiwa. I went deeper and achieved more in therapy than I have ever gone before, I made peace with meditation and yoga - both things I have resisted in the past and both I now practise in daily life. I feel transformed, thank you.

I travelled from Los Angeles to Istana Jiwa on the recommendation of a friend and in my mind, it was a leap into the unknown. I was completely unprepared for how cosmopolitan, competent, professional and caring the staff were. From the moment I was met at the airport to the moment I left I felt cared for and understood. This was an utterly life-changing experience, I never thought I would say I loved going to rehabilitation but I actually did.
