awareness & mindfulness first

We’d love to bring an important aspect of the villa experience to your awareness:

Villa Mantra is a space with a curated vibration that we carefully maintain & hold space for. It’s for like-minded vegans to meet, get together, and/or reflect upon themselves.

We are not on platforms like or Agoda for instant reservations, as we care deeply about the unique energy every person brings into the space.

If you have not experienced Airbnb at its humble beginning – the original intention is for people to experience life with others at their homes – very much like Couchsurfing but with energy exchange (payment), and we want you to make yourself at home!

That’s what Willa Mantra is: A co-loving space that supports you to introspect, to experience our way of living that will initiate you into a lighter vibration

Villa Mantra is NOT a hotel or Bed & Breakfast, and we don’t have 24/7 staff on site because it’s a private home


About Drama Free: 

We care about the comfort of our guests when staying at the villa, and we deeply understand that when Mama Bali called, some of you may be going through a deep transformation that may activate emotions that may need to be held, Villa Mantra offers a high vibrational space for you to transmute the energy on your own & mindfully come together with others.

Lashing out, personal attacks, and unconscious finger-pointing (blame) is not welcomed.

Mistakes happen. However, at the villa, we highly value accountability, which includes acknowledging our unconsciousness and admitting, and voicing an apology when appropriate & important.

We prefer to make things super clear, so there won’t be further issues.  

If this feels challenging, please WA Joanne & she’ll point you to where you can learn more about this around Ubud where there are many resources.

Dear Soul Connections,

There is a reason you have chosen to join us at Villa Mantra. I truly believe this. I know many of you have come from mindfulness-challenged environments, and many of you are going through life changes & transitions, I hope we can give you the support you need during your time with us.

Please arrive with an open heart and leave old stories behind. Patterns that don’t serve your highest self should be recognized and put on hold during your stay.

This is a mindful space, much time thought and energy has been put into creating this particular safe space, and any negative, aggressive, or less-than-compassionate words or behaviors are not welcomed. If you need to release, do so on a walk outside our sacred space.

We reserve the right to ask anyone to leave without a refund if rules are broken at any time for any reason. I’m very protective of the energy for the concern of all guests. A 24-hour notice maximum will be given but can be less.

Please remember you are exactly where you are meant to be, experiencing exactly what you need to experience.

I welcome you all with gratitude and love,


100% No Smoke, alcohol, processed foods, plastic water bottles, animal products & drama. Mindful communication only
  • No animal products or alcohol anywhere inside the villa.
  • Sustain from alcohol, animal products & smoking anywhere outside the villa during your stay. If you drink outside or eat animals (including eggs & dairy) please don’t return to the villa for 24 hours.
  • The common areas are closed by 9:30 pm. Please be mindful and start cleaning up after yourself at 9:15. We normally have yogis staying here, including me who like to sleep early and wake before sunrise.
  • The Kitchen: Please give the kitchen a rest at 9:00 pm and lights off at 9:30 pm.
  • Music, skyping, online sessions, and other noises: should be at a respectful level inside your room after
    9:30 pm.
  • Special note for UPSTAIRS ROOMS #5 & #6: We ask the guests who stay in these rooms to be especially mindful as they have open ceilings.
Cleaning – This is a communal home. Not a hotel.
  • Please respect this sacred space & clean up after yourself. Our staff, Ketut is here to assist, but he is not a servant. He’s available to lightly clean your room 2-3 days a week & we change sheets and towels once a week.
  • We each clean the kitchen immediately after use, it’s open-air which means we have to be extremely clean to prevent critters and bugs from moving in. Use it as much as you like but please mind IMMEDIATELY AFTER USING shared pots, pans, dishes, glasses, countertops, and the floor BEFORE sitting down to eat. We want you to take as much care of the kitchen as you do in choosing the foods you consume.
  • We are not a hotel. This is a community villa where everyone participates to make the whole better.
  • Entitlement is not welcomed. I’m sorry I had to say this but some past “very spiritual” guests didn’t understand this important concept. Thank you!



Bedsheets, towels, kitchenware, diningware … etc. 

  • Inform Ketut or Joanne, and we can figure out the price needed to replace them.
  • Ketut will make an assessment whether it can be fixed or need a replacement, so please don’t try to fix it yourself for your own safety and for the next guest.
  • If it’s your responsibility, you are accountable for the repair or replacement fee.

Overnight Visitors

Villa Mantra is a private space. Any overnight visitors must be requested in advance and announced to our group chat (extra charges apply)
