After a long laborious flight from California, this place was the perfect spot to relax. It had all the amenities to spoil yourself (including your own private pool and patio if you chose the correct villa), and the perfect staff. The staff including the butler were amazing and did everything to make you feel like royalty. The driver who picked...

We stayed at the bamboo villa for five nights in May. The villa and surrounds are beautiful. The staff were also very polite and helpful. I would love to give the Purist five stars but what lets it down is no fault of the owners. There is construction occurring next door - right next to the bamboo villa. From the...

Absolutely loved my stay here. Tucked away down a dirt track outside ubud (just about walkable) but I would suggest not. Only a small amount of rooms (8 I think) so never feels busy. Staff are friendly and amazingly helpful. I cannot speak highly enough of the team there.

My fiancé and stayed at the Purist Villa's for 5 nights in March 2014. We initially booked the Bamboo Villa (which was an amazing villa!!!) but on arrival there was some construction next door that could not be helped. The Purist was extremely apologetic and assured us that we would be moved the next day. The noise stopped at 5pm...

My wife and I spent 16 memorable days at The Purist Villas in early 2013 and departed wishing we had remained longer. We rewarded ourselves with a return 16 day visit in February 2014 and were so warmly welcomed back by the staff that we felt like family members, which made the whole experience doubly pleasurable. The service is impeccable...

From the location that is set aside from the hustle and bustle of everyday life to the impeccable and unwavering service, purist villas is absolutely perfect. No complaints whatsoever, if anything I wish I had the ability to rate them higher.
