Looking for a baby friendly villa in Ubud was quite difficult. I am glad I found Purist villa. I have been to Bali countless of times and this has to be one of the friendliest bunch of staff I have ever experienced. We stayed for three nights in timor villa with my wife and 19-month old toddler. In terms of... More

Stayed for three nights in July, We had the Hill Villa but also managed to have a look around the Garden Villa as well. The garden villa is smaller and had less of an attractive view, but the advantage over the Hill Villa is the sitting out area around the pool and the amount of sun the pool area got.... More

We stayed at the Purist for 5 nights in July and absolutely loved it, the place is sooo beautiful and serene that we relaxed as soon as we arrived. We were lucky enough to get upgraded to the Garden Villa and loved it so much, that most evenings instead of going into town we would just relax with a bottle... More

We stayed in the Garden Villa at The Purist for four nights during our honeymoon. The villa was unbelievably good, gorgeous bedroom, large bathroom with outdoor spa style shower and large granite bath. The pool was large and had a great outdoor dining area and sofa. The villa was very quiet and private. Breakfast was good and we ate it... More

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

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

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
