Fabulous small boutique hotel , filled with great artefacts and wonderful art. Beautiful location on lake side..... very tranquil. Delicious food with lots of freshly caught fish. Staff were always very helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend and looking forwarding to returning as soon as I can!

We arrived at Purity after 12 days of travel. The initial impression is one of peace and tranquility. Our room was close to the water and very quiet. It was well fitted out and quite spacious. Breakfast is around an open courtyard. The lunch and dinner menu is good but not vast. The staff were very helpful and pleasant.

Small boutique hotel, nice friendly staff (lots of them), good pool, fine view of the lake (although sadly there are empty plastic bottles floating on the reeds) and nice garden. Tasteful Indian art in the main building. Owners are a German husband and Spanish wife. Meticulous attention to detail. Dinner in the garden (barbecued fish) was really good. We had...

We stayed at Purity for one night before going in their houseboat for 2 nights. Beautiful hotel with lovely big rooms, decorated really nicely with pieces of art. The food was really nice and the dinner is served overlooking the lake. Great staff and a fabulous pool overlooking the lake.
