Not in the heart of things some would say but it more than makes up with some excellent service, fabulous food and beautifully done up villas. We were upgraded to the garden villa which had a large pool. The food was so good we had most of our meals in the Purist rather than venture out. My husband tried out... More

We stayed initially for 4 nights in the Garden villa then returned for a further 4 nights and stayed in the River Residence with our daughter and partner.. We have travelled extensively throughout the world and this is undoubtedly the best hotel we have ever stayed in which is indeed a major achievement. The use of the world "villas" in... More

We stayed at Purist for the first 3 nights of our honeymoon in Bali. We spent the first night in the Hill Villa and the next 2 nights in the Garden Villa. First of all I would like to mention the great way in which we were greeted by the staff despite our late evening arrival, first by the driver... More

A stylish property with attention to detail in design and architecture. Took a glean at almost all the villas in the estate and my favourite is the Hill villa because of the double storey configuration. Size of the living room is perfect for a couple and the dining area overlooks the whole estate. Bedroom is very romantic with 4 poster... More

The Purist was exceptional, having stayed at the Viceroy previously and other 5 star Villa resorts The Purist was a pleasant surprise.The service was exceptional and intimate having almost the feel of a "home stay". My wife and I highly recommend The Purist. Enjoy!

We stayed in the Timor Villa -- it was beautiful and very peaceful. The attentive staff were friendly and helpful. Located slightly out of Ubud, you'll need to take taxis in and out of town, but the staff happily arranged everything for us and made excellent recommendations for restaurants.

My wife and I stayed at the Bamboo Villa for 2 nights. There is a private infinity pool where excess water falls into a lower terrace where the spa is. The Bale/patio was where we had our breakfasts and a candle light dinner. The shower and toilet are outdoor. The property is small, located in a quaint village north of... More

We loved every bit of it!! Everything was perfect, service was impeccable, every little details was taken care. The location is a bit far away from Ubud center and kind of hidden, that may be also the beauty of it! We will definitely come back here.

If you want to spoil yourself for a memorable trip to Bali, then by all means choose The Purist. It's style, sophistication and butler service were all 5 star. The grounds are covered in artifacts from all over the Indonesian archipelago that were hand picked by the owners. I loved my open air shower and peaceful deck that looked out... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
THE PURIST VILLAS AND SPA is a hip designer’s hideaway nestled in the green fertile hills of Ubud, Bali. It wants to be a meeting point for individuals, for those who need to unwind in an inspiring setting and being pampered with great massages and delicious food. Our chefs use the freshest of ingredients, locally produced and in season, whether your meal is served in your villa or in the restaurant. In its rural and tropical setting you can fully appreciate the tranquil peacefulness the Balinese are famous for. The beautiful surrounding rice paddy fields make the short walk to the centre of Ubud a scenic walk. Being the cultural and spiritual heart of Bali, it is obvious why Ubud is a haven for writers and artists from around the world. The secluded Purist compound includes a spa building used for the specialist Ayurvedic massages as well as a yoga and meditation deck. We offer a variety of treatments, given by the best massage therapists, yoga and meditation teachers. The construction and design of The Purist reflects the ancient Balinese Hindu belief embracing the importance of balance, purity of spirit and harmony, as well as a deep respect for the natural environment. We use an eclectic palette of materials, including recycled wood, authentic Indonesian artifacts, natural lava and lime stone and green river stones. With The Purist, Yvonne and Alberto succeeded in creating yet another home away from home, which has become their trademark signature. The Purist offers only seven private villas, making it the smallest boutique hotel in Bali. In this way, we can meet any of your personal and specific needs. The Purist: sophisticated hospitality stripped to the essence. ... more   less
