During my recent travels I’ve had the pleasure of visiting Ubud and to spoil myself with a detox getaway at the Purist Villas private pool villa in Bali. If you are ever visiting Bali, especially as a couple I wholeheartedly recommend you to splurge for such an experience!
Are you just planning your trip to Bali? Sometimes it can be difficult to decide which places to go to, especially if it is your first trip. My recommendation is to spend a few days by the beach and a few days in Central or North Bali. That way you can have two very unique experiences on the same island. If you’re in search for a private pool villa in Ubud than this might just be the place for you!
- The Purist Villas Ubud is located near Ubud Town (5-10 minutes by car)
- The resort offers free drop-off and pick-up from Ubud Town center
- Important: To get the best price contact reservations directly. The 140sqm Bamboo Pool Villa price can vary between $330 – $488 based on seasonality and if you stay more than one night you will get a better rate
- In addition to your private pool (when staying at a villa) the resort has two large pools that are open to all guests (see picture above and below)
- The Purist Villas Ubud is the only resort in Indonesia that is a part of the exclusive Relais & Châteaux association
- À la carte breakfast was delicious and healthy (see more further below)
My Villa with Private Pool in Ubud | Bamboo Pool Villa at The Purist Villas
At this resort there are a dozen different villas each with its own unique design. The one I stayed at is called Bamboo Pool Villa, with a rustic traditional design and I especially liked the private pool with natural stone tiles. The green stone give the pool a very natural look that fits in with the surrounding trees, stone wall and bamboo elements.
With the price per night of $345 USD per night (price may vary seasonally) the Bamboo Pool Villa offers the following amenities:
- 1 King or 2 Twin beds – 140sqm / 1507sqft
- Experience private luxury one-bedroom villa with sitting area, outdoor lounge and balcony
- Jungle view
- Butler service
- En-suite bathroom with bathtub with separate shower – Hairdryer – Bathrobes and slippers – Toiletries
Upon arrival I was greeted by the very welcoming front desk staff who assisted me with the luggage which is quite helpful as this is not a typical large resort where you can simply take an elevator up to your suite.
On the way to villa I had a brief tour of the resort to see where the breakfast was served in the morning, and once we reached the villa I was welcomed with a refreshing virgin mojito! To see the full experience watch my YouTube video below.

I found the Bamboo Pool Villa (as it’s named by the resort) to be very spacious with it’s own fairly large private swimming pool.
Yoga in Ubud
A great way to start the morning is with a Yoga session, the night before simply ring the front desk to book your morning session that starts at 7am. And it’s free for the guests!
Breakfast at Balissimo Restaurant | The Purist Villas Ubud
The Purist Villas Ubud is the only property in Indonesia that is a part of Relais & Châteaux association. The reason why I need to mention this is because this exclusive association places high importance on not just hospitality services but food and beverages. À la carte breakfast was delicious and healthy, with selection of chia bowls, home made pastries and even a salmon omelette.
Visiting Ubud Town
It is very convenient that the resort provides free transportation to Ubud center and back, just inform the front desk during which scheduled time you would like to head to town center. And by car it takes less than 10 minutes to Ubud center.
Once you are in Ubud you can visit the Ubud Market (open from 9am-6pm), the Ubud Palace where there are daily traditional performances. The town center is also a great choice for dinner as there are numerous restaurants spread all around, you can walk through Jalan Gootama street where there are many restaurants and bars.
