This is an absolute gem in the middle of Ubud. We stayed in the Bamboo Villa 1, and it was faultless. The place was very clean with all the mod cons we required. It looked amazing and fitted right in to the jungle surroundings. Our pool was used everyday and heated up in the glorious sunshine. The food was delicious...

This was by far the best of the 4 places we stayed on our trip to Bali and we stayed the Intercontinental (which was excellent but massive) So in terms of small luxury spots this was solid!

When we checked into the Pool Suite, we were MIND-BLOWN. Such a great price for an entire villa with 2 bathrooms, 1 master bedroom, in-room massage bed, dining room, living room, and private pool. Completely amazing and huge space! The service was also always extremely pleasant and friendly. This villa was seriously more than we could've asked for. The restaurant...

The Purist Villas are tucked away on a quiet sidestreet, just outside of the congestion of downtown Ubud.
