Kolonial House Rehab and Retreat Centre
Kolonial house rehab and retreat centre is a western owned and operated, luxury rehab facility in the peaceful beachfront village of Sanur, Bali.
We treat a range of addictive behaviors and mental health issues separately, including alcoholism or drug abuse, anxiety, depression, and trauma.
When it comes to supporting our clients through rehabilitation, we have found a customized approach, together with the proven benefit of small, peer group therapy is most effective. This is why our programs are tailored to the unique needs of each client, with only 4 clients on-site in our private suites and 2 in nearby premium villas.
Our Bali rehab centre incorporates best practices in addiction medicine, clinical psychology, and holistic therapies. Our program director, and expert team, will customize a plan based on a comprehensive initial assessment. They will listen to your needs and personal circumstances. The most appropriate clinician and support staff will be assigned to your care as part of your individual program, including 1 on 1 session with our professional psychotherapists, and counselors.
Therapies include CBT, motivational interviewing, mindfulness meditation techniques, family systems therapy, trauma release exercises, art therapy, and several other treatment methods. Some small group therapy sessions, and activities, are also offered, which have been proven highly beneficial, offering peer support and common experience. We do not force clients to attend 12 step meetings, although there are well-established, both AA and NA fellowships in Sanur.
We also use the SMART (Self Management And Recovery Tools) group therapy program, also based all over the world, on the latest evidence-based techniques and recovery tools. We can introduce the principles of any of these programs, most suited to your needs if you choose.
Complementary treatments include acupuncture, ayurvedic treatments, yoga therapy, breathwork/pranayama. Credible local healing treatments, massage, steam room detox.
Physical activities include many options, such as daily yoga and meditation classes, regular beach walks, a 24/7 full-size gym, martial arts or boxing, and a full range of Watersports.
Daily exercise, enjoyable activities, a purpose in life, and a healthy diet, are fundamentals always encouraged.
Our centre is secure, private, and safe, however, we do not lock clients up. When clients feel ready to explore and experience normal life, our support companions can accompany them.
We also don’t force clients to participate in any therapy, meetings, or activity they prefer not to. We do encourage clients to practice, honesty, acceptance, and promote positive self-esteem. We do not shame or blame and discourage negative stigmas. We carefully assess each client’s intake and do not take detoxing clients or those with more serious acute issues, to maintain harmony in the house. Our partner, an expert primary care facility, specializes in the medical care necessary to manage those clients in a safe lockdown facility, before possibly joining us when they are more clear, healthy, and ready to continue on their healing journey.

We place great emphasis on developing a comprehensive after-care plan with your counselor. Together, we will create a daily routine to follow, discuss ways to manage or avoid triggers and stay motivated to continue your recovery. You can choose to stay directly connected to your lead psych, or counselor, with online sessions. We will assist with connecting you to group Therapy, or suitable counselors and support at home.
For those clients with limited financial resources, we can also assist you to transition after your in-house stay here, to a more budget safe housing accommodation, nearby. This way you can continue with your recovery while being supported by our community, staff, and companions, who will genuinely become like family or friends. You can continue with ongoing meetings, selected therapies, treatments, and enjoy a further break from your life at home. We don’t offer unrealistic quick fixes at Kolonial House.
Generally, for most people, the first months particularly, are critical to breaking old habits and forming new motivations and lifestyle changes. The following 6 months and beyond, it is often still necessary to maintain your recovery earnestly. Many clients experience the bubble of rehab, bursting when they return home after short, 30 day stays, especially in lockdown facilities. We offer a more flexible, open, real-life experience, still fully supported. Our main motivation is to honestly assist you to really transform your life for the long term.
