A warm welcome is part of The Purist philosophy.

When you arrive, you’ll be ushered into our lovely, open reception area - a contemporised version of a traditional Balinese rice barn.


Our English-speaking staff are local people, each carefully chosen to deliver faultless service, with attention to detail and genuine warmth. The Balinese are renowned for their generous spirit and kind-hearted nature and our team will ensure your time at The Purist, is beyond what you’d hoped for.

Should you wish to explore Bali at your leisure, our front desk manager will organise private drivers and day trips for you with pleasure. Naturally, our reception is staffed around the clock, we’re here for you day and night, just let us know what you need.


In the peaceful Purist environment, we honour the slow food philosophy – it comes to you fresh, fair and delicious in harmony with the environment and seasons.

That said, we cater to all dietary requirements and understand that culinary pleasure is an essential part of your stay.

For that reason, we select or chefs from among Bali’s finest and offer both Indonesian and International dining options.



The Purist Villas & Spa embody the ancient Hindu beliefs of balance, harmony and purity of spirit; to this, we add a deep respect for the natural environment.


Yvonne Hulst and Alberto Cortes have worked closely with architect Joost van Grieken to create a truly spectacular experience, a tasteful, beautiful resort designed in harmony with its landscape - the fragrant, lush hills of Bali’s magical Ubud region.

Our wish is to connect our guests with Bali’s many spiritual and artistic traditions. That’s why we’ve furnished The Purist with only the most beautiful and authentic artifacts which we’ve slowly accumulated on our travels among the various Indonesian islands.


Bali’s Purist Villas and Spa is the latest incarnation of hospitality hotspots conceived by Alberto Cortes and Yvonne Hulst.


The design duo have a growing portfolio of successful boutique businesses spanning three continents, each characterised by an ethnic-chic aesthetic, using natural high-end materials to realise a vision that is highly attuned to the local environment.

HARISSA VILLAS is a collection of artfully restored private villas and fincas available for rent on the Balearic Island of Ibiza, further south in Morocco, the RYAD DYOR is a fabulous boutique hotel just moments away from the heart of Marrakech’s medina featuring seven sublime and unique suites, private hammam, roof gardens and intimate Moroccan style restaurant.

Ibiza’s GIRI RESIDENCE, in partnership with Lars and Rosa Hansen, is a bijou boutique hotel which started its life 150 years ago in traditional finca style and has been superbly restored to its current incarnation with five fabulous suites and a strong spa offering.

Yvonne and Alberto have attracted a loyal following in the last decade, people who want to holiday in keeping with their lifestyle at home – in beautiful spaces with all mod cons at their fingertips. Whether it’s the laidback jazz tunes, the tasteful décor, or the natural ambiance of the locations, theirs is a pretention-free brand of cool which attracts like-minded travellers from all over the world.

A passion for music, fashion, art and design is evidenced everywhere, but the most defining element, is a love of freedom.
