“Everyone had a great time – surfers + the girls. Food, surf,stuff, spa and gorgeous scenery made this a wonderful time away from all!!”
“Just a quick note to say we had an absolute blast during our recent stay!!! EVERYONE was fantastic, including Furi, Missy, Gema and Amponi (please excuse any misspellings). Your resort is run so professionally and smoothly, we felt we were into it from the moment we were met in Padang. Wally’s laid back but professional approach reinforced all this and all the staff were kind and attentive.
I would like to make special mention of Andrew (Smanny). He really made the trip for us. Always relaxed, easy going and accommodating but extremely professional and guided us to the right surf spot every time. We could not have been made to feel more welcome on the boat. Great bloke. We will be back (and hopefully we can get Andrew again if he’s around)!
Best wishes and thanks guys. You’ve got a great team and a great resort.
PS. The food guys, the food!! Brilliant.
PPS. Still drooling over Swilly’s surf shots. The man works hard and can make anyone look good!”
Well, we’re all settling back into the work grind, but the stoke will last a lifetime. Just wanted to pass on a huge thanks for our amazing stay at RLZ. Our expectations were high before we arrived, but we were absolutely blown away by the setup – and as a bonus, the surf pumped!
The resort is amazing, and Wal, Chad and all the staff did everything possible to keep the stoke level high – fantastic. You guys have put together a great place and team to ensure the perfect surf trip. Also, the two surf guides we had – Smanny and Seagull -these guys are absolute legends. So generous with their time and advice, giving us all great tips on each spot, calling us into waves well beyond our comfort level and genuinely stoked to see us catching waves – they did everything possible to get us into the best waves all day every day, nothing was a problem. Just great friendly guys who were a pleasure to go surfing with. And with Firry and Roi on board, it was good banter and laughs all day. Legends.
Best surf trip ever? Definitely – 10 days x 6 hours a day x nil crowds x perfect waves = pure stoke. Once again, thanks heaps. Stay surfing.
“Best Resort I’ve stayed at, with EPIC waves and great food. All the staff are legends, would definitely come back just to surf Ranga’s.”
“Thanks for a fantastic week of surf, food and fun. No one does it better than you.”
“Fantastic” – Toni Duncan
“In every aspect Fantastic!” – Gordon Schoffl
“We all had a wonderful time. Surfed ourselves stupid and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and great setup with teeriffic boats fantastic food, service and accommodation. Thanks to all!”
“Cheers to the awesome crew Matt & Jen. Amazing Resort and fun times, good fish and surf! See ya soon!”
“Thanks for everything. To the staff, awesome work and the best place to spend our 40th B Day. The food, drinks, accommodation, staff are second to none and the waves were just as good. See you in another 10 years for the 50th.”
“Just letting you know Swilly’s photos made it home OK. I have made two backups and also given most of the guys their images.
Thanks again for sharing a great couple of weeks with us and for the awesome photos. All of us are in agreement that you were a key factor in making the trip so amazing. I hope you are having as much fun this seek and that all your travels coming up go smoothly.”
“Had the pleasure of a Resort stay in early September 10, including meeting the legends Matt, Todd and Wal (of course), John and Budgie plus the staff. Hospitality was outstanding – what a great job to build and operate such a resort at the standard you have achieved. The surfing was extensive, with the guides taking us to the ‘right spots’ for the swell conditions, and importantly, crowd avoidance – comfortable boats and well-stocked for the day’s surfing – surfed ’til we dropped’. And the first aid competence and care was exceptional (after my unfortunate reef-experience at Bombers!). Special mention of appreciation to Shane. Definitely a memorable, value-for-money experience.”
Dear Rlz, thank you for what was one of the most memorable holidays of my life, your staff, accommodation, amenities, food and level of commitment to providing the best possible customer experience was second to none. I’m already saving for next year and can’t wait to see you all again.
All the best,
“U have the best place for families and surf!! We want to go back!!”

I just wanted to email you guys from the NOMAD and all involved to thank you on behalf of the boys for everything and for an amazing trip. All the boys absolutely loved the trip and I’m sure Mark loved it too. It was so well organised, the crew were absolutely awesome in every way possible, food 10/10, fishing, waves, relaxing, it had everything. You guys have nailed it in every way possible. I will be recommending it to all my mates and will be back on it again one day.Thanks Shaun

“Looking forward to getting back for a 3rd time in August. You guys do it well.”
“Thanks so very much for looking after me while I was there & thank Smenny, Christina, Albert & all the boys loading the boat, John, Rob, Resi & Marni & the cooks.
I had such an amazing time all the staff are absolutely amazing the place is so well organised it was a breeze. Can you please let me know if there are any out of season prices for the new lodge because I would like to take my family. I will definitely be back with my family & friends.
I’ll be telling everyone about your resort it’s the best surf holiday ever.”

“There’s a pulse coming!”
“Had a great time at RLZ the team out there were first class.”
“Sick place, sick surf. Ads the surf guide is a legend. Coming back for SURE.”
“One word for the new bungalow…..WOW!!!!!! It is super spectacular. You’ve nailed it! The little touches like the floor lighting when you into the bathroom are ace. I reckon you might struggle to get rid of us after 5 weeks, haha. Not much surf today so we came hom early – Garth chilling on the balcony playing guitar to his fan club – Larry! So he’s stoked as can be.
Thanks soooo much for letting us stay in the bungalow, it just takes things to a whole ‘nother level. Garth says it doesn’t matter if it’s flat for 5 weeks, he’s so happy to just sit out front and chill :-)”
Amazing setup and level of service! We were so impressed with this place and the staff as well who did everything for you but surf! Thanks again for a great time and will be back for sure.
“The best value for money surf trip ever- 10 days, 25 sessions, 400 perfect waves, too easy. ill be back” – Luke George
“After many years of not surfing, I was hesitant to embark on a trip surfing Indonesian reef breaks. I shouldn’t have worried, the crew at Resort Latitude Zero had it all covered. A memorable two weeks and I survived to surf another day.” – Peter O’Brien
“A really enjoyable experience, fabulous hosts and acommodation 4 stars plus, with great waves ( wow) 🙂 and sensational staff !!!” – Edward Messara

“Just wanted to say another thank you for our week on your island. The whole family had a blast and are talking about coming back next year already!! Had a few “fun” moments getting home but I guess these just make the memories and stories more exciting.
A credit to you and your staff for the hospitality shown and we won’t hesitate to recommend Latitude Zero to all our friends.”
“Hooking up with the Freshie boys at Resort Latitude Zero has been amazing! You guys have the place wired and I had the most fun, the best waves and the most laughs ever. Thanks to you and all your support staff who make it happen. Special thanks to Adam, Chad, Apony, Robin, Ferri & all surfing crew. All resort staff including Santi, Uni, Christina and Latitude Larry…. Also to Budgie & Gareth for keeping it real. I’ll be back next year.”
“Just back from second trip to Resort Latitude Zero with my 14 year old son and his mate. Again, a perfect trip. Food excellent and wave hunting second to none. Can’t wait to get back.” – Reaymond Mcguinness
“Just thought I would let you know I had an awesome trip to Latitude. 5 stars all the way. I had one of the best surf trips I have ever had and we didn’t even score a solid swell ! I take my hat to you and the team. You have set up an amazing operation that is decadence in Indo. We were looked after incredibly by the entire staff and in particular Ads, Joel, Ferry and Roy who are all legends. Thanks again mate – keep up the good work.” – Dooma
