What Istana Rehab in Barbados can offer you


A-listers have long appreciated Barbados for its laid-back culture and unmatched level of privacy. Indeed, it is strongly favoured by our clients with a higher public profile, who need guaranteed anonymity and a complete break from a rather intrusive world. Locals are used to seeing known faces, and your presence is unlikely to raise eyebrows let alone cameras.


Istana Rehab in Barbados is easily reached from all of North America’s regional hubs. It is also a manageable flight from Europe and the Middle East. As an established travel destination, fast internet and international medical facilities are standard.

World-class treatments

The Caribbean’s relaxed, beach-oriented culture make it a natural home for wellness, rehabilitation and pleasure. Discerning visitors ensure that standards are world-class and approaches are innovative, something that harmonises well with Istana’s evidence-based methods of selecting the best holistic therapies for our clients.

Natural beauty

Many of our clients comment on the diversity of the Caribbean landscape, and the rejuvenating effect it has had on them. You might spend a morning exploring a national park, and an afternoon deep in an underground cave network, among stalagmites and stalactites. Rolling sand dunes and luminous white sand are, of course, a given across the shorelines.

Animal and plant life, much of it protected, is abundant across the Caribbean. You may find yourself close to monkeys, iguanas and an astonishing array of bird species whilst padding along a rainforest trail. Underwater, you can spot turtles, stingrays or even dolphins.

Outdoor culture

Whatever your fitness level, it is easy to be active in the Caribbean. The best way to experience the natural beauty is on foot through the many trails and paths dotted about. Water-based activities are popular with our clients, particularly diving, snorkelling and sailing.

Delicious, healthy cuisine

Bajan cuisine is a mesmerising fusion of African, European, Cajun, Latin American and Asian influences, amongst others, and it’s sure to set your tastebuds alight. Your personal chef will make good use of the plantains, peppers and coconuts that grow abundantly throughout the region. And fish here, fresh out of the water, has a taste and texture like nowhere else.

Why travel to a rehab in Barbados?

Traveling to our rehab in Barbados will aid in your recovery by removing you from the distractions, habits and any trauma associated with your home life.

The act of travel is to seek change, it is associated with new ideas, fresh possibilities and renewed hope. To travel for treatment is an affirmation of your good intentions for positive change and your belief that change is possible.

For some clients, particularly those with reputations to protect or from high profile families, attending treatment in their home location is simply not an option. The stigma of having a problem with substance abuse or mental health can jeopardise careers, reputations and even one’s place in society.

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!
Simon, Hong Kong
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.
