Please let the nutritionist know of any health concerns you have, you will find that many issues you have become resigned to such as depleted energy and persistent fatigue can be remedied with correct nutrition and supplements.

During your stay with us you will enjoy the attentive services of your own personal chef. All the food prepared for you will be fresh, light, unprocessed, organic and in-season where possible. Your personal chef will shop daily for fresh ingredients and all the menus will be designed specifically to nourish you and to fortify your constitution. 

Menus will be prepared according to the recommendations of our practitioners in order to address deficiencies in your diet and to strengthen your body’s nutrition. Based on your bespoke program, your nutritional needs may vary from high protein or low carb plans as well as include nutritional supplements if required.

Bespoke Approach to Nutrition

We will take into account your personal and cultural dietary preferences and your chef will determine from the outset, any particular requests you may have regarding your diet. This can include gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, vegan and pescatarian options. If you have any special dietary requirements or requests, your personal and private chef can accommodate this for you.

Your personal chef will also take the time to provide you with information on nutrition and if you are interested in cooking, will teach you how to prepare recommended meals.

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.
