Luxury Depression, Anxiety & PTSD Treatment Retreat

Treatment for PTSD, depression & anxiety

Anxiety, depression and PTSD are the most common behavioural health issues in the world today. Many people have hard-to-define feelings of discontent that they find difficult to share, even with loved ones. Twenty-first century life has exacerbated even minor mental health disorders, with many believing that excessive screen time, social media, and now Covid, are factors.

Left untreated, such feelings can escalate into clinical depression and often self-medication through substance abuse. If PTSD, anxiety, depression are affecting you, the Istana Luxury Behavioural Health Treatment Program will help you find lasting relief from these burdens.

Please click here to talk with one of our team to discuss the unique, gentle and highly effective Treatment Program at the Istana Luxury Behavioural Health Retreat in Bali, Ibiza or Barbados.

Istana is not a normal treatment centre in any sense. We only take one client at a time and the treatment you experience is uniquely personalised to your needs, preferences and experiences to resolve your issues in a gentle and peaceful manner.

You will be housed in your own 5-star villa, set in large tropical gardens. In addition to your dedicated Istana treating team you’ll have your own chef and discreet domestic staff to take care of all needs in your villa. 

All your needs are taken care of. You have nothing to worry about and nothing to do other than relax and allow us to guide you on the path of recovery and restoration to full mental wellbeing and a happy life ahead.

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.
