Although located a short distance from the bustling hub of Ubud, you could not ask for a more relaxing piece of tranquil Bali than The Purist Villas. From the moment you enter, the staff truly do make you feel at home - and that isn't an exaggeration. We were looked after by Sam, who's hospitality skills were flawless. The resort...

Stayed with a friend for five nights. It was the perfect start to our 2 weeks' holiday. It was so relaxing - we only left the premises twice and were super happy when we returned each time. We stayed at the jungle pool villa. Very nice though no loungers outside for when it rains and a bit dark. In sunny...

The Purist Villas is the most amazing boutique hotel, 2k outside the hectic centre of Ubud. It’s simply a piece of heaven. Think infinity pools, rose petals on the bed upon arrival (and in the bath), friendly staff, and amazing service. The pools are inviting and stunning, it never was really busy at the pools (there are two), so it...

The Purist was amazing - the staff was so warm and welcoming, the restaurant made all sorts of dishes specifically for me (wheat free, dairy free, and vegetarian) and they didn't taste like cardboard, but sumptuous... the chef really knew what he was doing! The massage, while overpriced for this type of service in Bali, was amazing! We were able...

Our stay at Purist exceeded all our expectations. This beautifully maintained piece of heaven provided us with an indulgent and luxurious experience unsurpassed by any we have had before. All the villas are unique and special, offering a true Balinese flavour and as we were very fortunate to be upgraded to the wonderful Joglo Villa this capped off an amazing...

Our stay at the villa was wonderful to say the least. All the service departments spoiled us with their high quality care to the finest details. Our private villa was sparkling clean & very comfortable surrounded by a relaxing, calm atmospheric jungle setting. Also please do check out the foods being offered from the restaurant too, you won't be disappointed....

If you want pure indulgence, excellent service and amazing surrounds, this is the place to be. We had a 2 bedroom villa which really was something out of this world. I highly recommend staying there, the staff are so friendly and accommodating. I can't wait to go back there.

I stayed here for 2 nights and it's truly magnificent. It's a small hotel, which I loved, the staff is amazing, friendly and helpful. The rooms are great too, very atmospheric and well equipped. The pools are just amazing! Make sure to book a yoga class with teacher Eka and you'll have the most uplifting, happy yoga class ever. We...

We booked into the Purist on a whim, and mainly as we'd decided Seminyak partying was not for us. From the outset we noticed the hotel is beautifully maintained and cared for, from the common areas to the bedrooms the standards are high. The room was beautiful and well appointed, no aircon issues etc at all. The staff are really...

This is an absolute gem in the middle of Ubud. We stayed in the Bamboo Villa 1, and it was faultless. The place was very clean with all the mod cons we required.
