The staff was helpful and attentive to our needs and anticipated them before we actually needed them. We had breakfast there and everything was delicious and freshly made. Going anywhere within Ubud and activities to participate in was made...

It's small, only 17 rooms of varying sizes, some with private pools, but SO spacious and beautifully designed; interiors, by one of the owners with impeccable taste, and the whole place itself...

It's a boutique villa and so it's comparatively quiet and cozy. We have enjoyed breakfast and dinners at our balcony and it was amazing. The quality of food is just...

The Purist was a great experience. The staff was extremely nice and attentive, and the location was beautiful. Additionally the food was extremely good. We went to some extremely highly rated restaurants in Ubud while we were there and I think the best meals we had were when we stayed in at the Purist. The hotel shuttle was also superb....
