I stayed here with my boyfriend and it is one of the most amazing hotels we have visited. The facilities were amazing, two beautiful pools, spa, free shuttle to ubud and a restaurant which offered really delicious food. The whole hotel was so clean and our room was made up 2 times a day. The staff at the hotel were... More

I absolutely loved this place from the first moment on. So many wonderful details, great architecture, matching colors and fabrics – the architects and interior designers have done a magnificent job here. No suite or villa looks like the other and whenever you turn around a corner you will find another scenery. Staff was absolutely pleasant and professional. We booked... More

Such a beautiful hotel that is so close to ubud and set within a beautiful space, our villa was gorgeous and the hotel organised lots of cultural trips into Ubud and to climb Mount Batur. They really sweetly woke us up at 2am before our hike and made fresh mango juices for us and sent us with bananas and water... More

We returned to the Purist Villa with our family (2 adults and 2 teens) and stayed for 5 nights. We couldn't have had a better stay and we could not fault anything. The staff are incredible, every single staff member went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect. The room (we had the garden pool suite), the facilities,... More

Second time at this hotel in 4 years and it was better again. Stayed in the Joglo, 2 bedroom residence - 4 adults and 2 children. Plenty of space indoors and outdoors, large pool, private, quiet and beautiful. The staff are incredibly warm, generous and helpful.

This is a resort that I really wanted to love, but unfortunately based on the villa residence where stayed, it was evident that it would be a rough time.

Four of us spent three memorable nights in the Limasan villa. The private pool and deck make for a very chilled out experience when you simply feel like doing nothing. When you do feel like doing something, the hotel is located close to Ubud's center. Our stay included a 60-minute massage per person and we were all very happy with... More

The Purist Villas are a wonderful place to spend a holiday and to unwind. We had the Limasan residence which was outstanding - huge living space, lovely large pool and beautifully decorated. The service is excellent, nothing is too much trouble and we were made to feel truly welcome. We will be back!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to The Purist Villas and Spa, a PURE HAVEN of relaxation near the heart of Bali’s spiritual and artistic homeland. The Purist Villas & Spa is a hip designer’s hideaway nestled just behind a rustic Balinese village, where you can still see all aspects of traditional rural life, including daily offerings, traditional dances and music. Comprised of seventeen uniquely styled and tastefully appointed villas, this enchanting property at The Purist offers privacy, design-led luxury and a deep sense of tranquility set in breathtaking, natural surroundings. Manifesting a true feeling of the Magical Island Of The Gods. Each villa is an oasis of calm, created using natural materials and all have living spaces which open directly to the outdoors, overlooking the lush tropical Jungle. HOMAGE TO THE INDONESIAN ARCHIPELAGO The JOG-LO house, The LIMASAN Residence and The TIMOR Residence, are a combination of three villas reflecting an ancient Indonesian architecture, fully renovated and modernized with high-grade facilities. All beautifully reassembled with modern convenience in mind, they are all ideally suited to accommodate extended families or groups of friends, and perfect for special events like weddings. The Purist Villas & Spa embody the ancient Hindu beliefs of balance, harmony and purity of spirit; to this, we add a deep respect for the natural environment. Yvonne Hulst and Alberto Cortes have worked closely with architect Joost van Grieken to create a truly spectacular experience, a tasteful, beautiful resort designed in harmony with its landscape - the fragrant, lush hills of Bali’s magical Ubud region. We use an eclectic palette of materials, including recycled wood, authentic Indonesian artifacts, natural lava and lime stone and green river stones. Our wish is to connect our guests with Bali’s many spiritual and artistic traditions. That’s why we’ve furnished The Purist with only the most beautiful and authentic artifacts which we’ve slowly accumulated on our travels among the various Indonesian islands. In the peaceful Purist environment, we honor the slow food philosophy – it comes to you freshly organic, fair and delicious in harmony with the environment and seasons. That said, we cater to all dietary requirements and understand that culinary pleasure is an essential part of your stay. For that reason in particular, we select our chefs from among Bali’s finest and offer both Indonesian and International dining options. Complete with a unique Asian flare, traditional Balinese spices mixed with international delicacies. The Purist Spa offers a range of blissful Ayurvedic treatments and Sensatia products; Ayurveda is the ancient Indian philosophy of healing and well~being, focusing on re-balancing energy. With training that includes meditation and yoga, our therapists are deeply attuned to the practice of working with energy, and have mastered the art of mindful touch. The term ‘thank you’ in 'Bahasa Indonesia' implies both ‘giving’ and ‘receiving’ – our therapists are skilled at giving all they have, while inviting you to take all you need. You simply say ‘Terima Kasih’ – thank you. Still the mind and become fully present to the beauty around you by taking a yoga session or two. Our yoga teachers have trained abroad in some of the world’s finest yoga schools and can be booked for private sessions, in small intimate groups of four. You’ll find yoga mats in your room, simply let us know what style of yoga you prefer – if you have a preference - and we will ensure to bring the right teacher to your door. Complimentary shuttles to Ubud center are scheduled daily for guests. The airport is around 90 minutes away by road depending on the traffic situation. 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
