Purist Villas is definitely a gem in Ubud, Bali. It's just 10 mins from Ubud town and is secretly located in a mountain where surrounded by rice fields and greens. 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....

The perfect place to stay if you are looking for a beautiful hotel, fantastic staff in a gorgeous setting. The hotel delivers an amazing personalised service which really makes your stay feel extra special. Located about 5 mins by car from Ubud centre, The Purist feels secluded and serene but still close to the action. We took a half day...

When we arrived, General Manager and all staff warmly welcomed us. The villa is absolutely clean and beautiful in detail. All facilities are maintained very well and we felt like heaven.

Booked the Bamboo Pool Suite for 3 nights. Spacious villa with a mix of both modern and traditional architecture. The room includes a private garden and pool. Great service! We had lunch as well as afternoon tea at the Balismo. The resort also offers spa and yoga retreats but did not have spare time then to try it out. Lovely...

We chose to stay at The Purist as we are big fans of it's sister property, The Giri, in Ibiza so we were intrigued to find out what this hotel would be like. We were warmly greeted at reception, showed around the property and then to our villa. I think we had one of the smaller villas but it was...

I never give 5 star reviews, but the Purist has earned it! The check in with Joe was quick, yet welcoming. We were brought straight to our Garden Pool Villa, which was as amazing in person as it was from the pictures online. All the information we needed was given along with cool towels and virgin Mojitos, which were refreshing....
