This is where the magic begins

Arriving at The Wave

Arriving anywhere new can feel a little daunting. You will be accompanied by your recovery coach (who you will have shared the journey with from the airport) throughout your arrival.

We will show you around and introduce you to your therapist, psychiatrist and named nurse. We will help you to settle into your room and introduce you to your peers.

We have developed a very special relationship with The Four Seasons Hotel in Kuala Lumpur. Situated right next to Kuala Lumpur’s most famous landmark ‘The Petronus Towers’.

The team at The Four Seasons have worked alongside us for three years and visited us on many occasions to understand the level of service that our families need during arrival, departure and family therapy weeks. The hotel team will happily accommodate late or early arrivals and special requests in the hotel or serviced apartments.

Our families benefit from a 30% reduction on published rates when booking directly as ‘The Wave Family’.
