The Purist Villas and Spa
Jalan Tirta Tawar | Banjar Kutuh Kaja, Ubud, Bali, Indonesia (0361) 974454
I use TripAdvisor's made a lot of effort, but I've never really write a review but the purist villas has me really want to sing their praise. Even before we arrived, the handling and the helpfulness of our booking was brilliant. Upon arrival, I was impressed with how beautiful the villa was that the pictures do not do it justice. There is a really peaceful and magical atmosphere. The staff are so friendly and can not do enough for you. You have something very special about this place.
We stayed in the Bamboo Villa, which most private villas and can definitely recommend for couples and honeymooners. No bath but the outdoor shower is fantastic. The outdoor area at Bamboo Villa is fantastic, the pool is beautiful and the sound of the fountain and as a buffer is so relaxing. We had a bit of noise in the building next door, which was a shame, they were very apologetic, but everything else was so perfect that it did not bother us that much really. We have also the Hill Villa, which was really nice. We were of the opinion that the other villas were not quite so but privately run around you rarely other guests, I would doubt that you miss or be seen by many people. Also for the villas without pool, the main pool is so quiet you would go about it in the truest sense of the word only for herself and not many guests walk around. We saw a couple a day, which is not used for other days. We would love to return when in one of these villas and the use of the main pool next time
The food is very good and nice healthy alternatives. Unfortunately, we did not try some of their desserts, you must pre-order because they take a while. I would definitely recommend the food at the purist one night. But they will also make tips and recommendations.
The distance from Ubud is only a few minutes by car / scooter, and that's a great distance because of Ubud very touristy and busy is that if you are looking for a relaxing time, one would not want to be right in the center. You can also bike from the villas, which is particularly well suited for cycling in the rice fields, give you a map. But I would recommend that. Motor scooters they organize Great if you look a little further. Felt safe to go in the area, and even the streets of Ubud are really quiet. You should know that up to Mount Batur position, the police stopped us and gave us a ticket for not kept us on our license, basically a Gringo Bill taxes! We have to get it done, the fine, so worth it, we act a bit.
Also, yes, there are taps, but take ear plugs is all right!
Then it went into Amanjiwo, Central Java, which was great, but to beat the Purist Villas really with the excellent service, much more personal, private, incredible, welcoming and friendly staff. I did not want to leave.
