Integrated Holistic Therapy Led By Science

Substance dependence and mental health issues lie on a spectrum unique to each individual and are conditions of the mind, body and soul.

Successful treatment therefore depends on an entirely personalised and holistic approach for each client.

Istana integrates leading-edge medicine and progressive psychotherapy with healthy living and evidence-based Eastern practices.

We are unbound by dogma, dated thinking and generic pre-set programs.

Whatever is required for a successful and sustainable treatment outcome can be integrated into your program.


Exquisite island locations

extraordinary beauty, gentle ambience, and deep-rooted cultures

Every day these qualities will touch your soul and lift your spirit – further ingredients for a profound life-changing experience.




We admit one client at a time and your program is bespoke, delivered by your own team of elite and compassionate practitioners.

Our focus is on treating the symptoms and resolving the underlying causes of your issues, all from the sanctuary of your own private luxury villa.

We treat our clients as adults, we don’t take away devices and your Istana PAs can assist you in attending to business and family affairs while with us.

Confidentiality is assured, everything is catered for and personal preferences accommodated.

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 two 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 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 five-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 for sanity?

I started with Istana 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 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 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. 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 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.
