We stayed here for 3 nights and wished we could stay longer. Our stay was in one of the jungle pool villas and it was truly an exceptional experience. My husband made an error on the online reservation and as such it was booked 2 months off. We arrived and our reservation was no where to be found. Fortunately the...

From the initial warm, sincere welcome to the beautifully , locally furnished rooms, The Purist is everything a holiday stay should be. The jungle outlook only enhances the Bali feel created by charming people, a menu soaked in quality Indonesian ingredients and the feeling that nothing is too much when it comes to helping, which is so the Balinese way....

We stayed at the Purist Villas (River Villa 1) for two lazy days and nights and we wished we'd stayed longer; our villa was a slice of tranquility and relaxation after the hustle, bustle and humidity of Ubud. It is a beautifully decorated hotel and the outdoor huge bath tub in our villa was real treat and I ended each...

We chose this hotel for our 4 night stay in Ubud based on existing Trip Advisor reviews. I am a travel specialist myself, and hadn't yet come across this hidden gem! I will certainly be recommending it to our clients and honeymooners. The hotel only has 17 rooms, which was apparent in the personalised service experienced throughout our stay. We...

I spent 17 wonderful days at The Purist, and loved every moment of my visit. Special thanks to Bapak Wayan, Puri, Depi, Joe, Widie, Stuart, Dani and every other member of staff. Where ever I went in the resort, the spa, the restaurant, the front desk even walking down a path, I was always greeted with a smile. Whether it...

I guess I didn't do my homework on Bali, or Ubud. It was an add on to a dive trip to Raja Ampat, so I didn't pay attention. Somehow, I had this idyllic image of Bali as art villages, open countyside and serenity. I thought I could rent a car and cruise around! What I found was a place of...

Our last 2 nights of our journey through Bali and this in Ubud (which we visited already fourteen years ago). We opted this time to stay in the Purist and more specifically the hill pool villa, as seemingly having what we were looking for. We didn't arrange a transport by the purist to arrive as they were asking more than...

Short holiday at the last minute to Ubud. Our friends recommended the Purist and it was also one of the properties that caught my attention when searching for accommodation. We were staying in the River 3 Villa which was lovely. Located at one end of the pool, it had plenty of privacy, a lovely veranda with day bed and dining...
