Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It must be a wonderful place to stay as this was our third time here. We have stayed in many places in Bali , most of which look good but often have a significant drawbacks such as traffic noise or dogs barking 24/7 The Purist though is an absolute haven of tranquillity with beautifully detailed villas all immaculately maintained. The restaurant serves extremally good food in a lovely poolside setting On top of all of this the staff are delightful, being both very caring without being all over you . We would like to make a special mention of Wayan who really is a fantastic asset to the Purist. It had been 7 years since we had last stayed, and yet he remembered us from then. He is extremally helpful and really went the extra mile to help out and give good advise. Being just 1 kilometre from Ubud The Purist is either a quick car ride or an easy walk into the centre We will return

Tailor made paradise… Visited here at the beginning of October for 5 nights…wow it did not disappoint. The location and it’s surroundings are breathtaking. It’s literally like being in the jungle! All the wildlife and foliage frames the hotel perfectly! It’s low key beauty. Room was lovely very comfortable and rustic traditional Bali. Beds very big and comfortable. Very good service. Particularly Depi and Jocki - both lovely, warm people who couldn’t do enough for you. We ate at the hotel most of the time, except for excursions and the food was very good. We had the couples package one night with service at the room the food was brilliant and something I’ll remember for a long time! Spa session we booked was also fabulous and reasonably priced. If you are thinking of booking somewhere special this is the place, you won’t be disappointed.

We stayed at The Purist for five days, whilst visiting Ubud. From the warm welcome on arrival, and throughout our stay, we were treated so well, by the amazing staff. My husband and I, and our two grown up daughters occupied two River Villas, which were situated near the main pool. We found we had the pool to ourselves most days, which was wonderful. We had the most relaxing stay, and although there’s lots to do in Bali, we spent a lot of our time enjoying the peace and tranquility of this amazing place. Each villa was quite different, though equally lovely, with both indoor and outdoor living space. The breakfast each day was delicious, and the service was very attentive. We also enjoyed the complimentary afternoon tea, on a few occasions, which was very nice. During our stay, one of our daughters became ill, with a high temperature and an upset stomach. Reception organised a doctor very swiftly, and all the staff showed concern for her. One of the restaurant hosts Choki (?) was particularly kind and helpful, he prepared a tray with ginger tea, fruit etc., and personally delivered it to her villa. The care and kindness shown to us, was what made our stay so memorable. We hope to stay at the Purist Villas again, one day.

An excellent property around 1.5 km from Ubud city centre (to which they provide periodic shuttles). Each staff member was extremely courteous and welcoming. Our room was excellent with an open air shower as the highlight. Housekeeping was discreet and efficient. Their spa and restaurant were also excellent. Highly recommended.

We stayed at this mini resort to celebrate an important birthday. We really appreciated the fantastic customer service. We had a issue with our room and the staff went out of their way to solve it. Everybody at the front desk was understanding and helpful. Especially Mr. Surdama made sure that the issue was resolved to satisfaction. We also booked a half day tour with driver from the resort. Mr. Mohammed who drived us around was very knowledgable, told us interesting stories about Bali culture and was a pleasure to have as company for the tour. The breakfast is superb and the other meals were all delicious, served by super friendly staff. We loved the place, the hill villa we booked had some issues with smell of humidity, we were moved to another room which was fantastic. The team really goes out of their way to make you feel you are at a high end resort, one of the best we have enjoyed. Thank you team at the purist to make our celebration a special one to remember.

Unfortunately, the big villas were booked and we had two separate jungle villas for 2 persons next to each other with our two teenagers. The villas were in 1 word wonderful! They have 2 main pools. And the villas also have their own pools. You can even order floating breakfast. We had a beautiful time here! Everything is thought of. The staff is well managed and super caring and friendly. The food was good. Breakfast was super! Massage was lovely. They have a car service to the village which is very handy! The only thing that shocked us is Ubud and surroundings. We were here in 1999. Everything was natural. But now all the tourist attractions have turned into a giant circus. Hardly any rice fields and nature left. People are building hotels everywhere. It’s money driven. Incredible and a shame. The government does not seem to protect Bali. Traffic is too busy. The place is busted with tourists. But unfortunately this is the case everywhere in Bali. But the Purist is a little green relaxt oasis. Far away from all the cheap tourism that is ruining the island.

Staying at The Purist Villas was a wonderful experience that truly elevated our long awaited holiday. We were immersed in an atmosphere of serenity and beauty, surrounded by a lush landscape that immediately put our minds at ease. What stood out most, however, was the staff’s exceptional warmth and openness. Their commitment to working from the heart was evident in every interaction - always ready with a smile, nothing was ever too much trouble. From the gardeners maintaining the surroundings, the drivers ensuring our safe journeys, the reception staff making our stay seamless, and restaurant staff who provided delicious meals, everyone contributed to our wonderful stay. Their service was not merely a job, but a heartfelt gesture that made us feel genuinely welcomed and cherished. Taking a cooking class at The Purist was a highlight of our Ubud journey. Learning from the Purist's master chef and a budding sous chef, we crafted delicious meals using fresh, local ingredients. Sudarhma, who spearheaded this excellent initiative, deserves special praise. Their patient guidance and in-depth knowledge of Balinese cuisine brought the culture to life on our plates. This class isn't just a lesson in cooking - it's a delectable immersion into the heart of Ubud. Truly, a must-do experience!" The Purist team is a testament to the spirit of Bali and we look forward to our return. Sampai jumpa lagi Brent and Fiona, NZ

The resort is a beautifully presented oasis of calm. Ubud centre is walkable but Purist also offer a shuttle service into town. Our villa was in a well kept tropical garden and was impeccably clean and well decorated. The private pool was a great place for the children to cut loose within the quiet and tranquil resort. Food was amazing, from breakfast to afternoon tea and evening meal. Staff were the best, so friendly, attentive and happy to help, they immediately made us feel welcomed. Highly recommended, would most certainly stay again 💕
