We stayed at The Purist Villas Ubud as part of our honeymoon for two nights.We were welcomed very well. All the staff are so kind and humble. Whatever we needed we received!!!!! Absolutely Amazing experience. The breakfast was also soooooo good and it was always served on time. We are definitely coming back!

We stayed three nights in the Hill Villa, and really enjoyed our stay. The villa was incredibly spacious, with a separate room for our kids (ages 7 and 10), private pool and front balcony. My husband and I both used spa services and were pleased with the quality and the price. The restaurant was also a nice surprise. What sets Purist apart, however, is the staff. They are so willing to help you with every part of your stay in Ubud, and definitely pay attention to detail. There were only two downsides, as we saw it to our stay - 1) Staying here, you are 'one with nature' - the plus is a serene, calming setting. The downside is that you will also 'be one with the bugs" - inside and outside of your villa. The hotel does provide mosquito repellent and indoor bug spray, but I have to admit, we were ready to leave the bugs after 3 days. 2) While we liked the food at the restaurant, by the 3rd day, we tired of the breakfast, which had fewer options for our Western palettes. Overall, would recommend!

We only stayed 2 nights at the Purist, which was short. We loved the hotel, the serenity, but also the restaurant and their reasonable prices for drinks and food, we absolutely enjoyed spending time having a glass of wine and sitting at the public swimming pool. Our room was huge, it could easily fit a whole family, with 2 bathrooms, 2 showers and a huge private swimming pool. The architecture outside but also inside the villa is beautiful. I didn't like the fact that our room was very dark inside, that was really unfortunate and took away some of the pleasure to be inside the villa. The pool was huge and beautiful. We had breakfast in the villa one morning as we had to leave very early for our biking tour. The breakfast was fantastic and service was really great. The shuttle will take you to the city of Ubud any time of day for a small fee, there is a schedule as well and the shuttle runs for free during the scheduled times. We liked the city of Ubud, but felt it was fairly crowded with lots of backpackers, which made us go back to the serenity of our villa quickly. If you don't want to be in the hustle and bustle of Ubud itself, the Purist Villas is a fantastic place to stay.

A calm and elegant oasis in Ubud where the impeccable service came with an infectious smile. We stayed in a river villa which didn't have its own pool but with two stunning pools to choose from we felt spoilt. The afternoon tea was a thoughtful touch and a real treat. Only wish we could have stayed for longer.....

Located 10 minutes by car from the Main Street of Ubud, the Purist Villas offers a secluded, polished retreat from the chaos for the main strip. We stayed for three nights in a Jungle Pool Villa, inclusive of it's own private pool, unique art pieces, beautiful large king sized bed and an indoor/outdoor shower. The Purist only has a small number of suites with maximum occupancy limited to 47 guests at one time (if every suite is filled to maximum capacity), so it felt very private and quiet most of the time. The hotel has two main pools in addition to suites that may have their own pool, as well as a spa complex too. We found that the real surprise was the FOOD! It was AMAZING! The chef prepared incredible traditional Balkanise dishes, but was also very skilled at European cuisine too. His fresh salads, seafood and meat dishes were incredible and his breakfast Eggs Benedict were among the best I've ever had. As always for Bali, all the Purist staff we encountered were incredibly friendly and very professional, with a very high standard of care. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the Purist Villas and Spa to anyone looking for a unique but secluded stay in Ubud.

We stayed 5 days in this wonderful hotel boutique. Our villa with private pool was just perfect. Any detail very carefully planned and decorated with Balinese antiques. Balanced lighting and smart design. Comfortable open air bathroom and amazing Balinese bed. Staff taking care of everything with an amazing smile anytime anywhere, specially in the restaurant. Stay in ubud if you wanna enjoy real Bali.

I spent 5 nights in August at The Purist during my Bali trip. It was one of the most beautiful places I ever stayed. I loved the architecture, the attention to detail and the individual style of the accommodation. If you search for relaxation, privacy and tranquility, The Purist is the place to go! I stayed at the Garden Suite (upper floor) - can recommend it without trade-off. The quality of the food in the restaurant is very good - I especially liked the smoothie bowls in the morning. Can also recommend the spa - Roni does magic! The shuttle to the city center is very convenient; walking is not really an option as the street is busy and narrow. What makes the Purist really stand out is the staff - they are all absolutely lovely, happy to have a chat when you are in the mood and discreet when you just want to read your book, and constantly aiming to make the guest just feeling in good hands. I will definitely be back - thank you for making my stay a memorable one!

My wife and I had a recent stay at the Purist Villas and all aspects of our stay was amazing from start to finish. The hotel, rooms and amenities was absolutely fab. The management and staff were extremely helpful and accommodated all our needs. We had a late flight back to our home destination and the hotel allowed us to use another room for up to one hour, at no additional cost to have a shower and refresh up before we catch our flight. That gesture ticked all the boxes for my stay. We will definitely be back at the Purist Villas again A truly satisfied customer

There are hotels - luxurious and beautiful, peaceful and quite, pretty and perfect; and then there is The Purist Villas And Spa! The Purist has perfection written all over it. The moment we stepped into Purist, we knew we had made the right choice but we got a lot more in return than we had hoped for. Being a meticulous researcher, I had gone through a lot of pain to find the perfect stay for us in Ubud. I had almost zeroed in on some other places when I spotted this gem and fell in love with the photos I saw and reviews I read. FYI - The photos do NOT do justice to the beauty of this place. Our check in was super smooth. We were assisted to our villa while being informed of hotel policies, timings, perks etc. The welcome drink was the best we've ever had - So fresh, so invigorating! The villa is beautiful beyond words - every piece furniture served a purpose, either practically or aesthetically. The villas is H.U.G.E. - a big, spacious living rooms with dining table, sofa and lovely balcony to relax; a humongous bedroom with a big, cosy bed and an artistic bathroom with a open to sky bathtub. We were bowled over! What makes Purist so special is the staff. The staff is not high in number but is the most friendly, helpful and efficient staff I have ever met. You guys deserve every bit of credit for making this place a success. The staff is polite, warm, doesn’t say no to anything and does its best to provide for the guests’ demands. We, generally, like trying different restaurants on our trip but the food at Purist was so fresh and sumptuous that we ended up eating here all 3 days. The menu, though limited, is quite interesting. The ingredients reek of freshness and the highest quality. The dishes were beautifully presented and were absolutely delicious. The breakfast is essentially a la carte (included in the room rate) with a few items such as cold cuts, breads and juices kept at the table. I ordered a different kind of egg each day and my husband went for the Nasi Goreng - we both could not stop raving about our breakfast! The pancakes were fluffy and tasty. The villa and resort is very well maintained. Our villa was cleaned twice, towels were changed, bottled water was kept in place and bug repellent coil was put in the evening. The restaurant has a baby chair (Yayy! for all those who are worried about their kids) Plus they can customize their food items to suit your LO's need. To Sum Up, Positives: + Gorgeous villas with beautiful jungle setting. + We were never troubled by bugs/mosquitoes. + The BEST staff ever. + Clean and Green. + Delectable food made with organic ingredients. + Did I mention the desserts? (Try ALL on the menu) Negatives: Are you kidding me? Do NOT think twice - Just stay here and thank me later :)

Stayed for four nights in Jungle Pool Villa 3. Was a sensational villa, with everything you could imagine. Very spacious and very well appointed with Balinese artifacts. We wanted a place to unwind and relax and this was just perfect. I cant recommend The Prist highly eough - everything was met well above our expectations. Thank you to all the wonderful staff who made our stay so enjoyable.
