“A small paradise”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

We need a quiet villa in Ubud to stay.We chose Purist cause it is a small hotel with only 7 villas.We stayed in Villa River1,which has a large open area with local decoration.We like it so much.You can have breakfast ,dinner,reading book,anything in this area with a jungle view front & a small river behind.We don't have a private pool,but the main pool is just steps aside.We only saw people there once.The breakfast is amazing.You can anything on the menu,and the butler will deliver them next morning,sweet.We also use the hotel driver to the downtown,the driver was so kind and will give you great suggestion.We will try other villas next time.

Room Tip: River villa 1 is great.A large open area and the main pool just aside.

We just spent 2 nights at The purist and we were sad when we left because we wanted to stay much longer. We stayed in the jungle villa. It really felt like we were in a jungle because of all the green around the house and the sounds of frogs, grashoppers, birds etc.. in the evening. The food was almost all organic and healthy and so good tasting. Everything was great about this place. We're definitily coming back to The Purist when we go back to Ubud again sometime.

My husband and I spent 5 wonderful days here at the stunning Purist Spa. Wonderful views, friendly staff, gorgeous food, and a great location. The Purist is beautifully decorated, and is laid out in such a way that you often feel like the only guest there. There are many great places to stay in Bali, but the Purist has the attention to detail. Thanks to all the staff for a wonderful stay.

We have just had a wonderful 4 night stay at The Purist and thoroughly enjoyed everything. We stayed in the Garden Villa which was just magic - beautifully decorated, very romantic with a stunning pool. The staff could not have done any more for us - always obliging with that wonderful Balinese smile and happy to share a joke. The food was first rate - an excellent selection and different every day - would even make something that was not on the menu. The villas are all very private with beautiful landscape design features around every corner and having only 7 villas makes it very intimate and special. Would absolutely recommend The Purist to everybody! Thankyou for a wonderful holiday in Ubud.

We stayed at the purist for four nights in the Hill Villa as a family of two adults and two children. We had an excellent stay. The Hill Villa is a very upmarket and stylish two bedroom villa with lovely artwork from ubud, much of which you can purchase in the Ubud area. The breakfasts were outstanding with many staff eagerly serving you with really great food. The staff are very friendly and will drive you to the genuine art and craft makers rather than the commercial tourism hubs where the prices are inflated. Being a boutique hotel you really feel looked after and the manager always ensures that you have achieved what you want out of your holiday in Ubud.

My partner and I chose The Purist Villas as our base for Ubud and our expectations were exceeded. From the intiial booking process to the farewell, we felt special. I would like to note the service provided by Sukang, Antarres and Agus was far superior to most other hotels I've stayed in. Nothing was too much trouble for these men. The accommodation was quiet, luxurious and immaculate. The outdoor showers and bathtubs made us feel as though we were bathing in the jungle. Very special. Treat yourself to a massage whilst there. We changed villas throughout our stay and particularly loved the Garden Villa and Timor Villa. I highly recommend The Purist as a romantic and well located venue. The staff welcomed us like friends visitng their own homes. We will be back!!!!

Me and my husband stayed at the Purist in September 2011 for our Honeymoon. I know i am terribly late posting a review but it kept gnawing on me(it is the least i can do for their service) and here i am finally!

I wanted things to be perfect obviously for my honeymoon and so I booked Purist based on their stellar reviews on Trip advisor. Oktri responded promptly and gave us a great deal. We stayed at the Garden Villa which has a huge private pool for 3 nights and then in the Bamboo Villa for the last night. Right from the moment we stepped in, we were made to feel at home. The staff is extremely friendly and warm. Purist has a small but breath taking property and I loved all the extra personal attention we got which isn't usually possible in a big resort. Both the rooms we stayed in were very aesthetically done right down to the minute details.

The food was excellent. We had to fill out a form choosing from myriad options for breakfast each night. I am vegetarian and Oktri went out of her way to accommodate my requests. Our package included a romantic dinner in our villa. The staff lit candles all around the pool and then brought us a delicious 4 course meal served at the pool side. What can i say, I was so pampered at Purist, I still talk about it often to people. Their spa was amazing as well and we really enjoyed our couple massage.

There is nothing I would want to change about my stay at the Purist and I hope i get a chance to visit Bali soon to experience their hospitality again!
