4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I’ve stayed here a number of times and it’s one of my favourites. Just when you think it can’t get any better they do just that. They now have more villas, all very different but done with great taste throughout and a great restaurant with mouthwatering food and great service. The owner was just leaving as we arrived and he immediately upgraded us to an amazing new 2 bed pool villa. What a gem of a place! Reception were terrific in arranging private transport to Java for our return flight and also reserving an overnight hotel. 5 star service throughout.

We went there just before new year. The place is very well planned with different kind of villas eg garden view, pool villa etc. We took garden view one and loved it. The rooms are huge with a separate section for bathing etc, a very big balcony with a nice view. The room takes care of smallest of needs loke mosquito repellant, toiletries, fruits, bath robes, bath salts etc. The staff is ultra polite and caring. Must try ! Would recommend for sure

The Purist was the last stop of our honeymoon, on which we were lucky enough to stay at some top class resorts and hotels. This was the best of them all. Book it now. We stayed in July last year. The service, first of all, was fantastic. Every single member of staff was outstanding, but we particularly must thank Puri in the restaurant who was brilliant. This is what makes this place stand out above all others, especially when combined with the great setting, brilliant food and general luxury of the place. The location is great- peaceful and not too far from Ubud. A short, cheap taxi ride from the centre of town or use their shuttle when available. The only small downside is you don't get an amazing valley view as with some of the Ubud resorts but this is a minor complaint- you won't notice. The grounds are wonderfully designed and the attention to detail in all aspects is top notch. We stayed in River Villa 2 and it was great! The only criticism I would have of the room would be the stone bath - there wasn't enough hot water available to fill it. Otherwise the room / villa was just a great place to spend time, as was the adjacent communal pool which was never busy. Be aware also if you have mobility issues many of the villas can only be accessed via steps. The food was brilliant. So much so that in our stay we had dinner many times in the restaurant - no need to go out in Ubud when it's so good here. All of our meals were excellent- not just "good", but excellent. I have only one small criticism which is the resort's pickup service which was very late arriving at the airtport to greet us and made our arrival a bit more stressful than it needed to be. The driver wasn't uniformed and there was no obvious way of identifying him when he did turn up, although he was a very pleasant guy all the same. This was soon forgotten though with the fantastic treatment we got when we did arrive. In short, if you are thinking about staying here- book it. The staff really make this place stand out and we thank them for making us so welcome. We'll definitely be back!

The Purist Villa & Spa is a fantastic place to stay, just relax and unwind. The staff are amazing, professional, but very friendly too and remember your name. They just want to help you chill out. Breakfast selection is great and can be served in your room too if you wish. The main restaurant is in a quiet setting by one of the pools. The complex had 2 main pools, and some villas have private pools too. Lunch/dinner choice is good and there is usually daily specials. We ate there several time and enjoyed it. Portions are of medium size, and food was warm as against hot, which is probably good for the hot weather. But food is very tasty. Daily afternoon Tea/coffee and a sweet/cake is a nice touch too. My wife and I had a 2 hour Massage in the Spa Centre, and it was super. Probably one of the best I have ever had. The Internet speed was not the best, but that more an Ubud thing, rather than a Villa issue. The actual connection to the Villa network was fine. We had Junge Villa 2, which had its own Pool. It was clear and a good size facing the Jungle. No Monkey issues there either to worry about. We had a 4 Poster King bed in large room, a large walk in Closet area and big bathroom, double sinks, large bath, separated toilet and outside, but covered, Shower. Its well appointed and got a lovely Balinese flavour. Regular hotel shuttle for taking you into Ubud and pickup too if you want. But it can be walked as well. The hotel organise our Airport Pickups and they were good. Good drivers and clean large cars. We would definitely stay there again.

We stayed 4 days at Purist and it was the highlight of the trip! The hotel is beautifully appointed with everything you could want, but what makes this place special is the staff! The service was EXCEPTIONAL!!! S'oim was our driver (and now friend ) and he was an angel on this trip!! His knowledge and fab attitude made him an essential guide! No ask was too much! Ask for S'oim!! Depiani took amazing care of us and ensured every need was met and more! Depiani is remarkable!!! If you are lucky enough to meet her you will be blown away by her loveliness. Puri in the restaurant was a delight!! Thanks Puri for everything! The people are angels!! Treat yourself to this slice of heaven!! :)

Great place to bring the family. We had 9 people traveling together and booked Limasan and one garden suite which are awesome. Limasan has indoor living room, day beds and a lovely pool. The garden suite 4 was very close to nature and with its own fish pond. Very safe for children compared to other pool resorts. Restaurant of extremely high quality. Love the grilled Jimabaran seafood plate and everything on the menu. Spa was really peaceful in a bamboo room. Pak Manik and his staff are the best.

So good and peaceful,the energy is amazing , the bamboo 2 room is chic big with the private pool , thanks to everyone and specially to my friend Sudarma the best guide in ubud/bali 🙏🏻👍🏼it s really the best hotel in Ubud

The Purest Villas is for us one of the top Resorts. Staff, Management very accommodating and we really felt very comfortable . We stayed in a two bed room Residence with pool and the place was just beautiful. My husband and I lloved the typical Balinese Interiors Style and the children were happy 😆 in the pool. Breakfast and Food was exectional and also service very accommodating and not over the top. The resort also offers tours and the tour. We did the herbal tour (Market and Rice FIELDS) with Sudarma and despite it was very early start, we only can strongly recommend everybody to join Sudarma. We were astonished about the knowledge of Sudarma, even our two teenagers were impressed.

One of the nicest places I've stayed, didn't want to leave!! Couldn't fault it. Beautiful grounds in a quiet rainforest location. The staff were very attentive and helpful but not over the top. The food was just amazing and the decor well... I just wanted to take it all home! Thankyou for a wonderful stay.

Gorgeous hotel with incredible scenery and overlooks the river. The food is amazing. Friendly staff always happy to help. The hotel is perfectly located about 5 mins drive from Ubud centre, quiet but close enough to grab a quick cab. Watch out for the bugs!
