We booked really last minute and based on the reviews we found here. The Purist is really I tremendous place for a stay. As a courtesy, perhaps due to a birthday celebration, we were upgraded to a Hill Villa and you cannot imagine the high standard of it. 7x3 meters Private pool, huge stone bath tube, view all over the...

My girlfriend and I stayed at The Purist for four nights in a jungle villa. The service, staff, design, and experience were top notch and stellar. Daily breakfast delivered to the room (included) was plentiful and fresh, and such a great way to start the day. The private pool and daybed filled up an afternoon for us. The hotel seamlessly...

I was a little concerned booking if the amazing reviews would hinder my expectations but I shouldn't have been worried- The purist is pure perfection. From the smiling face of Wadi meeting us at the airport to him dropping us at our next villa the experience was unforgettable bliss. Our Hill Villa situated in the centre of the compound was...

The Purist exceeded every expectation we had. The service, food, room and Spa were all outstanding. I would highly recommend if you are looking for a beautiful and peaceful retreat in Ubud. Its located just 10 mins from town and provides a shuttle service a few times a day.

My fiancé and I visited Bali in July this year en-route to Wakatobi dive resort in eastern Indonesia.

The entire property is surrounded by greenery...

Loved staying here: The design, the friendliness of the staff, the hospitality. Every detail was right. A place to relax since the villas are very private. This is a boutique hotel how it should be.
