We loved our stay at The Purist. River villa 1 is perfect - its outdoor living area and indoor/outdoor bathroom were incredible. The bed linen was fabulous and the laundry service first class. The attentive butler service was great, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfasts were incredible - fresh and delivered at the exact time specified. A couple of niggles were that dinner (our second there) took more than 2 hours to arrive - even on 'Bali time' (as referred to locally) that was unexpected; and the building works started by 8am so wiped out our chance of a planned lie in or afternoon relaxation by the incredible pool. We hired a local driver, called Made, through the Purist who was knowledgeable, courteous and prompt and planned our tours to meet our needs. He also told hilarious stories of his family - ask for him by name if in Ubud! All in all, a fabulous trip - we would highly recommend the Purist!
