A stylish property with attention to detail in design and architecture. Took a glean at almost all the villas in the estate and my favourite is the Hill villa because of the double storey configuration. Size of the living room is perfect for a couple and the dining area overlooks the whole estate. Bedroom is very romantic with 4 poster...

The Purist was exceptional, having stayed at the Viceroy previously and other 5 star Villa resorts The Purist was a pleasant surprise.The service was exceptional and intimate having almost the feel of a "home stay". My wife and I highly recommend The Purist. Enjoy!

We stayed in the Timor Villa -- it was beautiful and very peaceful. The attentive staff were friendly and helpful. Located slightly out of Ubud, you'll need to take taxis in and out of town, but the staff happily arranged everything for us and made excellent recommendations for restaurants.

My wife and I stayed at the Bamboo Villa for 2 nights. There is a private infinity pool where excess water falls into a lower terrace where the spa is. The Bale/patio was where we had our breakfasts and a candle light dinner. The shower and toilet are outdoor. The property is small, located in a quaint village north of...

We loved every bit of it!! Everything was perfect, service was impeccable, every little details was taken care. The location is a bit far away from Ubud center and kind of hidden, that may be also the beauty of it! We will definitely come back here.

If you want to spoil yourself for a memorable trip to Bali, then by all means choose The Purist. It's style, sophistication and butler service were all 5 star. The grounds are covered in artifacts from all over the Indonesian archipelago that were hand picked by the owners. I loved my open air shower and peaceful deck that looked out...

After a long laborious flight from California, this place was the perfect spot to relax. It had all the amenities to spoil yourself (including your own private pool and patio if you chose the correct villa), and the perfect staff. The staff including the butler were amazing and did everything to make you feel like royalty. The driver who picked...

We stayed at the bamboo villa for five nights in May. The villa and surrounds are beautiful. The staff were also very polite and helpful. I would love to give the Purist five stars but what lets it down is no fault of the owners. There is construction occurring next door - right next to the bamboo villa. From the...

Absolutely loved my stay here. Tucked away down a dirt track outside ubud (just about walkable) but I would suggest not. Only a small amount of rooms (8 I think) so never feels busy. Staff are friendly and amazingly helpful. I cannot speak highly enough of the team there.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to The Purist Villas and Spa, a PURE HAVEN of relaxation near the heart of Bali’s spiritual and artistic homeland. The Purist Villas & Spa is a hip designer’s hideaway nestled just behind a rustic Balinese village, where you can still see all aspects of traditional rural life, including daily offerings, traditional dances and music. Comprised of seventeen uniquely styled and tastefully appointed villas, this enchanting property at The Purist offers privacy, design-led luxury and a deep sense of tranquility set in breathtaking, natural surroundings. Manifesting a true feeling of the Magical Island Of The Gods. Each villa is an oasis of calm, created using natural materials and all have living spaces which open directly to the outdoors, overlooking the lush tropical Jungle. HOMAGE TO THE INDONESIAN ARCHIPELAGO The JOG-LO house, The LIMASAN Residence and The TIMOR Residence, are a combination of three villas reflecting an ancient Indonesian architecture, fully renovated and modernized with high-grade facilities. All beautifully reassembled with modern convenience in mind, they are all ideally suited to accommodate extended families or groups of friends, and perfect for special events like weddings. The Purist Villas & Spa embody the ancient Hindu beliefs of balance, harmony and purity of spirit; to this, we add a deep respect for the natural environment. Yvonne Hulst and Alberto Cortes have worked closely with architect Joost van Grieken to create a truly spectacular experience, a tasteful, beautiful resort designed in harmony with its landscape - the fragrant, lush hills of Bali’s magical Ubud region. We use an eclectic palette of materials, including recycled wood, authentic Indonesian artifacts, natural lava and lime stone and green river stones. Our wish is to connect our guests with Bali’s many spiritual and artistic traditions. That’s why we’ve furnished The Purist with only the most beautiful and authentic artifacts which we’ve slowly accumulated on our travels among the various Indonesian islands. In the peaceful Purist environment, we honor the slow food philosophy – it comes to you freshly organic, fair and delicious in harmony with the environment and seasons. That said, we cater to all dietary requirements and understand that culinary pleasure is an essential part of your stay. For that reason in particular, we select our chefs from among Bali’s finest and offer both Indonesian and International dining options. Complete with a unique Asian flare, traditional Balinese spices mixed with international delicacies. The Purist Spa offers a range of blissful Ayurvedic treatments and Sensatia products; Ayurveda is the ancient Indian philosophy of healing and well~being, focusing on re-balancing energy. With training that includes meditation and yoga, our therapists are deeply attuned to the practice of working with energy, and have mastered the art of mindful touch. The term ‘thank you’ in 'Bahasa Indonesia' implies both ‘giving’ and ‘receiving’ – our therapists are skilled at giving all they have, while inviting you to take all you need. You simply say ‘Terima Kasih’ – thank you. Still the mind and become fully present to the beauty around you by taking a yoga session or two. Our yoga teachers have trained abroad in some of the world’s finest yoga schools and can be booked for private sessions, in small intimate groups of four. You’ll find yoga mats in your room, simply let us know what style of yoga you prefer – if you have a preference - and we will ensure to bring the right teacher to your door. Complimentary shuttles to Ubud center are scheduled daily for guests. The airport is around 90 minutes away by road depending on the traffic situation. With The Purist, Yvonne and Alberto succeeded in creating yet another home away from home, which has become their trademark signature. The Purist offers only seven private villas, making it the smallest boutique hotel in Bali. In this way, we can meet any of your personal and specific needs. The Purist: sophisticated hospitality stripped to the essence ... more   less
