Reviewed 12 July 2010

We are regular travellers to Bali (almost 50 trips) and let me say that this little oasis is a find indeed ! Whilst other, more expensive resorts can dream, this little slice of heaven has a definite soul !!

The web site gives you a good idea of what to expect, but this place it is so much better in the flesh !

The service is excellent on all levels but what is priceless is that the service is in no way pretentious......... That perfect balance between professional and down to earth, just familiar enough to make you laugh, not too familiar that it intrudes on your privacy. The management and staff say they want to give you a "good feeling" from the outset and they CERTAINLY deliver on that promise.

After almost 50 trips to Bali, I think this is the best value high standard boutique luxury accommodation on the Island.

Do it !

Upon pickup at the airport by english speaking hotel manager and driver, greeting us with cool towels and bottled water. The friendly staff at the Purist were so welcoming and really made our stay so perfect.

The Timor villa was even nicer than the photos and nestled in a quiet jungle environment. Since no one was staying next door we even got to use the private pool.

A generous breakfast was served at our designated time on our private balcony and the food was excellent. The only complaint would be there was too much.

We were travelling with out 20 month old son. It was nice to see the port-a-cot waiting when we arrived to the room and the staff were very warm and friendly to him, taking the time to interact with him and even waiting each morning to feed the fishes with him.

We only ate dinner once. Because it was required to give a 3 hour notice of dinner requirements, we opted instead to eat in the town of Ubud. The Purist included a free shuttle ride to the town each day which included pickup & return when we were ready. A nice service.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to couples or families.

The Purist Villas are so individual and beautiful in every way. Pak Sugeng the Hotel General Manager took care of our every need and our personal Butler was only a phone call away. Cudos to the chef. All our meals were prepared fresh and the presentation was spectacular. The location is close to Ubud, about 5 minutes away by car.
Thank you, Pak Sugeng for a wonderful and memorable stay at the Purist.

Hidden in the lush tropical greenery only a stone's throw from the center of Ubud, The Purist Villas offers a feast for the senses in every sense of the word. Beautifully designed down to the last detail, using local materials and craftsmanship, each villa has a unique character and is a delight to stay in. I particularly enjoyed the open air showers incorporated into the luxury bathrooms and delighted in them with the pleasure of a child. There is a main pool and some villas have private pools, too, there is also a spa and a separate villa for yoga, if you are so inclined. The wonderful staff spoiled us with delicious, healthy, gourmet meals, locally grown coffee and the most delectable fresh fruit juices. If you are looking for a tranquil place to rest, rejuvenate and indulge the mind and the senses, I warmly recommend the Purist. If I had to summarise why staying there pleased me so much, I would say that it was because the place is a wonderful blend of exquisite design and fells like a home away from home at the same time. It really satisfied my need for beauty and comfort and indulged my hedonistic desires, too.
