Ubud is known for its vibrant art scene, music performances and awe-inspiring festivals, offering a unique travel experience. Amidst the artistic and culturally rich charms of the town, The Purist Villas & Spa provides the perfect living space, blending nature and traditional Indonesian art with contemporary European style.

The Purist Villas & Spa is situated 1.5 km north of central Ubud, on the edge of a river valley. Despite its secluded charm, the boutique resort is easily accessed by those seeking a more tranquil escape.

Founded by art connoisseurs Yvonne Hulst and Alberto Cortes 15 years ago, this boutique resort in Ubud beautifully combines Indonesian traditions with stylish European design, making it an excellent place for culturally curious souls.

The resort’s walkways resemble an outdoor fine art gallery, highlighting traditional wood, stone carvings and rare statues sourced from Indonesia’s outer islands. Tall duck egg blue walls, cascading ferns and a serene rivulet flow through the intimate grounds, adding to its unique charms.

The Purist features 18 individually-styled lavish villas, with each element used in the boutique resort showcasing true artisanship and creativity. The details reflect the founder’s vision to merge high-end hospitality with the archipelago’s extraordinary cultural diversity. They sincerely hope guests can connect with Bali and Indonesia’s spiritual and artistic traditions while also experiencing a luxurious stay.
