I felt like I was given a second chance at life.”

At first I was nervous because I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I had been diagnosed with clinical depression due to the insurmountable pressure from my personal life in 2020 and for the past few months before taking the leap with Kolonial House Bali rehab centre, I truly felt hopeless. My anxiety was at an all time high, up to the point where leaving my home to join the world, even for a slight moment, gave me intense anxiety. I knew something had to be done because my mental health was declining everyday and I was getting to the point where I was losing hope for my future. I was encouraged to try outside help, particularly in a rehab style facility that specializes in depression and generalized anxiety and I came across Kolonial House. I’ve been to Bali before so going back to Bali to find the healing that I so needed felt like the perfect fit for me.

My initial email to the team was nerve wrecking, but the timely response with the coordinator, and not to mention her immediate positive energy in wanting to help me helped in tremendously easing my anxiety. The initial conversation was warm and sincere, with every question I had being answered thoroughly, and that was when I decided to take the leap and go on this journey to self healing. My intake appointment with the clinical director was difficult because of my social phobia, but Vernon made me feel safe and I was able to open up to him and be honest about my struggles without feeling any judgment or contempt.

When I got to Kolonial House I was immediately welcomed by all of the staff. The staff made me feel at home immediately and there was an energy of genuine care and concern for my well-being. A schedule was created for me, and throughout my days I was well taken care of. My clinical team, which consisted of three magnificent therapists, were well aware of my issues and immediately had plans to help me with my recovery. It was not an easy process but I appreciate the sincerity of them wanting to help me and I greatly appreciated them not babying me in any way. In order to make positive changes in my life, I knew I had to put in the work and they encouraged me to do so in every way. I was given multiple readings and assignments and had to report back to the therapists and that helped in my realizing the changes that I needed to make in myself in order to regain control of my life.

Not only does Kolonial House focus on clinical practices but they also focused on other holistic practices such as acupuncture, Ayurvedic and yoga. I practiced yoga every morning at the Pono yoga studio and that helped tremendously in calming my inner sense of self and my overall mental state. The acupuncture was well needed as it helped with my anxiety levels and that overall was a magical experience.

Staying at the Kolonial house during my retreat was magnificent. It’s a quiet, beautiful home that had me felt safe and I was never alone. The staff were amazing in making sure I ate properly and were very caring. I made friends with them and it felt like being with family.

I will always be grateful for my experience at Kolonial House. I felt like I was given a second chance at life. I now understand that I am not a lost cause; the skills I’ve learned to gain more control of my emotional state and my overall life will be carried with me for a very long time, and I encourage anyone who is suffering from depression and anxiety to open up their hearts to this facility. I promise you that you will be in good hands and the experience and teachings are well worth it.

“Journey to my true inner self”

I came to Bali to make a recovery from my addiction to cocaine, alcohol and other substances in february 2020.
I cannot describe in words how much the counsellors and the whole team has been supportive through this journey to my true inner self. The head counsellor Jo and the rest of the team are highly qualified in their areas, very experienced and understanding. The team gave me a strong foundation in guiding me with trust, kindness and love during the process. It was also very helpful for me that I could learn the right tools to handle my emotions and my mind and my physical symptoms. Before I never could imagine how powerful the tools of meditation, yoga and others in combination could be. The introduction to the Twelve Step Program and the NA Meetings was very special for me, because I really could understand emotionally how addictive behavior works. The unique Kolonial House, which is the hostage part of the center is simply amazing in its beauty. It is much more beautiful in reality than any picture could ever show. I am so grateful for the help I received here. I can tell honestly that it was one of the best decisions I ever made in my life. I never thought it is possible, that I ever feel the way about life, like I do now. That is why I extended my stay here for another three months and I love it.

“Amazing rehab retreat centre”

I spent a month at Kolonial House that had a big impact on my life.
Amazing rehab retreat centre & beautiful people in Sanur.
I recently went on a rehabilitation retreat at Kolonial House and had treatments from the wellness center as well. Firstly, the wellness center is so peaceful and I felt so welcomed by all the staff and tutors at Kolonial House. They cooked me delicious(!) breakfasts and lunches each day, I felt right at home by the end of the retreat. The sessions were all expertly led and really interesting and the retreat was really tailored to my needs. Thank you so much Kolonial House! You’ve given me great memories that I will hold onto for a very long time.

“Kolonial House Bali rehab centre changed my life”

I spent a month at Kolonial House that has changed my life.
It was one of the best decisions I ever made. I had some mental health issues and addictive behavior problems and never thought I could feel so good about life again.
I am so grateful to all the staff. I learnt so much and they also inspired me to hopefully transform my life. They were so supportive.The wellness centre on the beach is truly amazing. Kolonial House is a beautiful and relaxing space to stay. It wasn’t easy to begin with, but eventually, when my physical and mental health improved, I began to feel peace and joy again. The whole support team felt like friends. I decided to extend my stay and they helped me move into the community, where I continued to go to meetings and yoga classes. I felt supported by the whole community.
I also appreciate they actually do support 2 kids foundations and other local causes. I can’t thank them all enough. If you have a problem I highly recommend you reach out to one of the team there. It was the perfect place for healing and recovery.
