Quiet, luxurious, comfortable with amazing service. Nothing wrong with this place. It's tiny and not a social place--you won't meet anyone and really don't even have to leave your room for pretty much anything. But it's really slick and totally awesome.

We recently stayed for 5 nights at the Purist and we nothing but praise for this gorgeous secluded property. We had booked the Timor villa but on arrival were upgraded to the Garden villa.

Unfortunately not having been to Ubud before I relied on a map and reviews to pick this villa and it turned out to be further from the main street and up quite a long steep hill without easy transport. Although the villa was beautifully decorated the lack of privacy made it a bit awkward as our pool was visible from...

I have been coming to Ubud since the late 1980's and The Purist Villas are the most perfect place I have ever stayed. The whole atmosphere of the resort is just so right, with individual villas set in beautifully tended gardens. There is total privacy between each property with some having private pools though there is a lovely shared pool....

We've just got back from 6 nights at Purist, and have nothing but praise and delight to report. We stayed in Jungle Pool Room 1, which has a lovely outlook of green, and as the name implies, our own private pool. Whilst the room and outside area are not as enormous as some in Ubud, it is beautifully done, with...

We booked really last minute and based on the reviews we found here. The Purist is really I tremendous place for a stay. As a courtesy, perhaps due to a birthday celebration, we were upgraded to a Hill Villa and you cannot imagine the high standard of it. 7x3 meters Private pool, huge stone bath tube, view all over the...
