The Istana Experience

Rehabilitation and Restoration to Health and Happiness

Making the decision to seek treatment is brave and can be daunting. Sometimes when you’re struggling with substance abuse, stress, depression, anxiety or any other mental health condition, the effort required to actually get into treatment can seem like an overwhelming experience.

But your journey to recovery begins with just a phone call.

And when you decide to take the next step we will smooth the way to make your arrival here easy and stress-free. We understand that your journey into treatment may seem overwhelming. Should you have any concerns with travelling one of our team can come to you, help you pack and accompany you on your journey. If you prefer to make your own way to Istana, a member of our team will meet you at your plane, fast-track you through customs and bring to your villa in a discreet unbranded car.

It is here that the bespoke Istana treatment plan that has been tailored to suit your needs, goals and practical considerations can begin. We will give you time to settle into your new surroundings before beginning your journey to recovery.

While you are with us our knowledgeable, experienced and caring team will help you free yourself of the troubles that brought you here and give you the knowledge and tools required to live the life you want. Our holistic and layered approach to rehabilitation has been proven to be the most effective form of treatment to heal your mind, body and soul.

We will prepare you for departure and after you have left we will maintain an agreed level of aftercare to help you manage after you have returned to normal life.

As a client of Istana you will receive the highest quality, evidence-based treatment available today. You will feel expertly cared for, understood and safe at all times.

As this is a collaborative process we will go entirely at your speed. Regardless of the pace of your personal program you will always have a sense of momentum and progress towards understanding and resolving your issues.

We will make sure that you are fully supported in all areas of your recovery and, within a timeframe of your choosing, restored to be the best version of you.

You will leave us thinking clearly with newfound strength, self-assurance and pride in your appearance.

Confidential Treatment at Istana

Clients are housed in their own private 5 star villas set in spacious grounds complete with lush gardens, swimming pool and discreet domestic staff. Your villa is your sanctuary, your treating team team comes to you and you will never meet another client of Istana. However, there will always be one carefully selected member of our support staff discreetly on hand so you will never feel lonely or isolated.

At Istana, we recognise you as an individual and not part of a group. Unlike other private treatment facilities we do not practice group therapy, instead, all sessions are held in one-to-one luxury settings. One-to-one therapy is considered the most effective form of treatment for those with limited time to spare.

A World of Experience

Never judgemental and always understanding, your team at Istana are English, Europeans, Australians, Americans, Barbadians and Indonesians working on the beautiful islands of Bali, Ibiza and The Caribbean.

We are well-traveled, highly experienced, compassionate and sensitive to your cultural and personal preferences.

Couples & Family Therapy

If it is your preference to include others in your treatment program, we will happily welcome partners and family members into your program. Whether one or both partners require treatment, the Istana Couples & Family Program can provide you with helpful strategies to overcome obstacles, break destructive habits and achieve long-term recovery whilst in a relationship.

If you would like to bring your children with you, all you need to do is to let us know. We have experienced child carers on our team who can look after children of all ages while you are dedicated to your program.

Cultural & Personal Preferences

As an elite luxury private treatment facility we are able to comprehensively cater to the different needs of races, creeds, religions and personal preferences.

Our chefs are experts in catering for specific dietary requirements whether they be Halal, Kosher, vegan or vegetarian and our nutritionists are able to distinguish between a delicious healthy meal plan and the latest fad diet.

We are privileged to have the resources on-hand to provide an entirely gender-specific team if required.

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.
