By choosing to travel to rehab, clients immeasurably increase their chances of success. This is an opportunity to create the foundation for a new life, far from the distractions and triggers of home. Through this experience our clients gain life skills and a new sense of self which they can easily transfer to their lives back home.
Bali, universally referred to as The Island of the Gods, stakes a serious claim to be paradise on earth. Its diverse landscape of rugged coastlines, sandy beaches, volcanic hillsides and lush rice terraces provide an idyllic backdrop to the colourful, deeply spiritual culture that rests within the hearts of its residents. There is really no better place on the planet to recover from addiction to drugs or alcohol.
As well as being a beautiful tropical island with a rich culture there are some very practical benefits to attending rehab in Bali.
New country– New attitude– New behaviour
An exciting new environment makes it easier for people to open their minds. Accepting the new way of living advocated by Seasons drug and alcohol rehab is much simpler on the stunning island of Bali.
Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali has regular flights from all major airlines and can be reached easily from anywhere in the world. Our VIP immigration service meets clients straight off the plane.
Private rehab in Australia, America and Europe costs between $30,000 and $120,000. At Seasons Bali we provide internationally accredited drug and alcohol treatment at a fraction of this price.
Bali has a large expat population and therefore has a high quality of health care. Seasons Bali has close links to BMIC and Siloam Hospitals. These are the best on the island.
Weekend Leisure Activities
Seasons Bali offers our clients a restorative sanctuary far from the pressures of home. Our clients have easy access to a fantastic range of leisure pursuits where they are encouraged to explore local arts, culture, sporting pursuits and adventure.
Our clients gain real personal growth from the range and scope of leisure activities offered on the island. At Seasons Bali, we believe that having fun without using drugs and drinking is an invaluable part of learning to recover.
Hobbies and activities form an integral part of our program and take place at the weekend. This a time to try new things, see the sights and awaken old passions. There are a wide variety of options on offer to suit all abilities and interests.
Our clients say:
I really enjoyed the yoga and meditation and at the weekends I loved going to the nice beaches and things like getting my nails done. They are things that I haven’t done for a really long time!
Every week, the residents work as a team to plan the activities that they would like to do over the weekend. Staff are always on hand to offer guidance and must approve any final decisions. The Clinical Team supervise all Primary Program outings.
At the weekend our dedicated chef and his team take some well-deserved time off. This means that clients dine out in a number of incredible restaurants in the local area. These offer flavours from around the world and are both delicious and excellent value for money.
We encourage clients to make suggestions about things they would like to be a part of and are willing to consider activities not listed below.
Surfing in Bali is one of the things that you have to try at least once in your life. A number of good breaks are located in Canggu, near to the rehab centre. Alternatively, take it easy, sip a coconut and watch the action from dry land.

Temple Visits – Tanah Lot Temple
The unique Hindu culture is never far away and on the way to activities clients often pass by blessings being performed by priests at the side of the road or colourful processions of local communities on their way to one of the thousands of temples.
Tanah Lot is one of the main Hindu pilgrimage sites on the south west coast of the island and for centuries its picturesque offshore temple has been the place the Balinese have come to worship the Sea Gods. It’s truly breath-taking, location on a rocky outcrop of the coast makes this a favourite weekend destination among our clients. Clients can receive a traditional Balinese blessing and if they are lucky catch the dancers in the cultural park nearby.
