THE PURIST VILLAS UBUD
Ubud is considered one of S.E Asia's most charming villages with its leisurely pace, shops, quaint galleries, cozy cafes and good restaurants. It is located in the middle of Bali island surrounded by rice fields and vegetation. Green and jungle. Ubud is well known, as well, for the spas and yoga studios, but also has a lot to offer for every liking; museums, markets, tips, restaurants, activities….. I had heard about THE PURIST VILLAS & SPA RESORT as the owner is Spanish. He has, as well, luxury villas and a hotel in IBIZA plus a beautiful Ryad in Marrakech. We took a 3 days gateway to explore Ubud and relax at The Purist Villas, winner of 2017 TripAdvisor Category of Best Small Hotels.
The Purist uphold to exceptional space, unparalleled privacy and a heartening personal service. The Resort is a stylish retreat set in a 1 hectare of tropical gardens surrounded by rice paddies and only walking distance away from Ubud Center. It offers 17 superbly appointed villa rooms and suites all of them surrounded by tropical gardens that offer an intimate setting.
Each Villa is unique and features rare sourced hand-made furniture and artifacts from all over the Indonesian archipelagos. The private villas are spacious and most of them have their own private pool with sun deck. We stayed at the Jungle Pool Villa located right in the center of the resort. An stunning home with a private pool. You can book your villa HERE.
The Purist also offers two main pools accesible to all guests. One pool for pure relaxation close to the spa pavilion. The second main pool is located in the from of the restaurant.
THE BALISIMO is the restaurant at THE PURIST by chef Mr. Putu. He is specialized in authentic Balinese cooking, using flavors that fuse different cultures. We had breakfast a la carte every day in our Villa as well as as a delicious and healthy dinner on the first night. Breakfast is included in the room rate and the in house menu is available all day long. All the dishes are made of the freshest of ingredients, sourced daily at the organic Ubud market.
Another highlight of The Purist is the SPA featuring a design concept that is a mix of authentic and contemporary style. The Spa Pavilion offers a menu that is a fusion of traditional Balinese therapies and classic Asian Treatment with an open air YOGA platform for private yoga lessons. We took some spa treatments including the purist massage, pedicure and manicure by expertly trained Balinese therapists. If your choose to enjoy it at the Spa Building or in the privacy of your own villa. You can book your villa HERE.
They offer a full range of concierge activities like Payagan trekking, Mt. Batur climbing, Elephant riding, cooking and yoga class among many others. Two mountain bikes were at our disposal, to cycle through the surrounding rice fields.
The Purist "Vintage Van” as we liked to call it is the bus service for free delivery and pick- up to and from Ubud Center.
Every single person of the staff, from Rudi, Agus, Dek-Rill, Eka, Dani, Andika to Kadek, was ready at every moment to attend us with every need and with the highest level of personalized attention.
