“Awesome time, great hospitality from the staff, fulfilled a dream. Shall return.”
“Hard to beat perfection! See you next year…YEW!” – Griffen
“Amazing waves, great staff, cant wait to come back!”
Firstly, thanks again for an awesome week at your resort. It was great for our group. The waves in the first half of the week were great for us and despite predictions of little action on the last two days; we had great sessions Thursday and Friday too.
Secondly, I’d just like to say how good Chris our guide was. He picked up the nuances of wind, tides and surf and got us to good spots consistently.
Thirdly, the food this year seemed have gone up a notch for which we were grateful.
Fourthly, the bungalow concept was awesome. We all loved it, especially when one of our boats was the only one at a break. I think we would all be interested in upgrading next year!
Thanks again and looking forward to visiting RLZ again
“Firstly many thanks for kindly looking after myself and Nerea for 10 days over the Easter break, we had an awesome time – you guys are the ultimate professionals. I’d like to book again for next year for myself and Nerea. Just let me know if you have any vacancies and thank you so much again for running such a great operation!”
Just a short note for the fabulous week last week. The Melrose group that I joined as a last minute were a fantastic bunch of blokes that included me in this opportunity to stay at RLZ.
The hospitality and detail from the local staff was just spot on, feeling like I had been to the island many times before. The massages were of very high quality and the food was at 5-star for a surfer who is going to spend, or has spent, the entire day in the water.
The resort is well maintained and the quality of furnishings is very good. The only negative, yet constructive feedback, would be to change the bedside light bulbs from Energy Saver to Soft Glow as they are brutal in the mornings!!!
Jack, our surf guide did a fantastic job in finding quality waves when the swell was intermittent and he went above what could have been expected of a guide. He and the boys working on the boats would detail the boat when we were out surfing (although not to a Superyacht standard 😀 ) and welcome us with smiles and food/drink.
Chad, Budgie, Chris and Ads were all very welcoming and frankly, I felt at home.
Thank you for hosting myself (special thanks to Matt for the Maroon cocktail..) and both Jamie and I are already looking at dates for next May.
What an amazing week!!!
“Hi Wal, Shane, and Resort crew. Thanks heaps for a great holiday, what an experience. From the time we got to Padang and then left Padang on the way out all we had to do was surf and enjoy the ride, every thing else was done for us by Resort Latitude Zero. We had an awsome time at the Resort and had the best waves I have ever ridden in my life. The snacks at the end of the day were awsome whilst we were watching the days surfing photos on the flat screen and the food was first class without a doubt. What a place to have a surf trip, see you next time (definitely).” – Gavin White
“This is the best place ever to have my 16th birthday. Thanks a lot to everybody for making it special and memorable.”
“My wife Georgia and daughter Claire recently concluded our holiday at Latitide Zero and we had a fantastic time. Everyone was great and tried very hard to give us a memorable stay. Special thanks to Rob and the boys on the boat, they were excellent and made sure we got plenty of waves. Also could you please pass on our thanks to John, Chad, Wal and John(US).”
“Thanks Chad, Joel, Andy, Fury, Gemma, Roy, Santi and Dewi! Great Island coral slab adventures again and can’t wait for next year!”
“Been to Bali, Lombok, Costa Rica, Mexico, Phonpei. Nothing compares. We got great waves every single day (10 days). Uncrowded perfection. At 56 yrs old, the BEST SESSION of my life!!!
“Sick place, sick surf. Ads the surfguide is a legend.”
“Absolutly terrific. Great value (I’m pretty picky). Thanks for a great time.” – Rob Medoff
“First time back since 2009 & it is still the best surf adventure spot in the world. Great destination, great staff, perfect surf. We will be back. Thanks!!!!”
“First time was fantastic. Second time even better. Quality waves, quality food, quality company. We will be back in 2015.
Thank you for an amazing trip for our crew over the past week at RLZ. You’ve done an outstanding job on all of the ‘little’ details which make the experience at RLZ outstanding. The entire crew of staff were very friendly and attentive to all of our needs and a special mention to Jack our Surf Guide who managed to put us into the right spot each day to cater to our surfing ability. We joked that any more than 4 in the break was a crowd and rarely in the 7 days did we surf with any other crew than the 4 on our boat. I’ve attached some photos which you can feel free to use as you wish. We took a drone on the trip and got some incredible footage of RLZ and the surrounding surf breaks. We’ll definitely be back ! Thanks again.
“The food never missed a beat. It was great that all the staff remember everyones name.”
“Now that I have had a chance to go thru the pix you saved onto my storage hard drive I have a better idea of what you have given me. Just wanted to say “thanks very much” for the enthusiasm, encouragement and humor that you injected into our contact out at Latitude Zero and in the water.
Some of those photo’s in the surf are just terrific. I will have those forever and have you to thank. So THANK YOU!” – Swilly Professional Photographer Package
“Thanks for all your help in arranging our trip. It was absolutely first class the whole way and all the boys had a fantastic time. Special thanks to Seagull and S man who were great guys. The attention to detail and overall quality of the whole package (staff, resort, boats, food etc. etc) will make it impossible to go anywhere else, so look forward to returning in 2 years time!!”
“Best surf resort I have stayed at with very professional staff, great location. A very good week was had by all. Thank you to all Indonesian & Australian staff. Could not fault.”
“I have been extremely impressed with how slick this operation is. The thought that has come into little details (colour coded water bottles etc.) shows the years of experience in the area. Before leaving to come on this trip I was asked “which camp are you staying at”. I said Lat Zero Resort. I was told “There are all camps”. You truly combined luxury resort living with the ultimate surf experience. Congratulations. I look forward to returning.”
“Matt & Jenny, Just dropping a line to say..Thankyou to Wal, Shane, Chad & all your amazing staff. Our 2 week stay was truely wonderful, the staff, service and resort is everything we could have asked for, staying at your place in Padang..meeting Ma and her amazing cooking..was a great way to finish off. So Thanks again, hopefully we can save for a return journey…it has inspired our “old boys” to keep surfing.” – The Denmark Couples.
Great Resort and haven’t had service like this in Oz for 20 years. Very accommodating.
“Fantastic time! Thanks for looking after us so well. Especially grateful to Adam for his insights and ‘go hard’ outlook.”
“Another great trip. Thanks for all the crew & staff.”
Thanks for such a wonderful holiday!
The new bungalows have taken the whole Resort Latitude Zero experience to a new level: they’re beautiful and luxurious. We loved the privacy, the views and the little touches like the essential oils.
Keep up the good work!
“Very difficult to find any faults. Accommodation, staff & attention to detail is fabulous. Great guides and surf. Will be back for sure.”
“Let me be the first to thank Matt and all the crew at RLZ. Great place, great service. Third time back & still loving it!!”
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.
“Had a great time at RLZ the team out there were first class.”
We had a great time @ RLZ 28 April through 8 May. Should you have any need to fill spots in the future keep me on the ready to return list.”
“I just wanted to give you some feedback. Had an awesome trip. Venue was stunning, food was sensational and the staff and service were friendly and attentive. The surf was great and special thanks to Adam and the boat boys for their surf tips, sense of humour and efforts to put us on good waves. Everyone in the group had a great time, and for my boys the call was the best holiday they have ever had. Thanks heaps to everyone. Currently suffering depression looking at crap cold surf! Already planning our next trip.”
“To the staff at RLZ thanks for another memorable trip to your region. We are always impressed as to the efforts you all make to get us into the surf, within an hour of our arrival we were in the water and an hour before we boarded the plane at Telos we were in the water also. ”ITS ALL GOOD” Thanks again Pete Coulson and crew from Coffs.” – Peter Coulson
“Very relaxed and enjoyable stay. Everything taken care off. Smiles and sense of importance made us feel very special. Could not fault it.”
“Back home after an awesome trip to RLZ and back into the Aussie winter. Had a great time though and was super impressed with the setup you’ve got there. Everything was bang on.
So time to start planning the next visit. Once again, thanks to you and all your crew for making it such a great experience. Had a an absolute blast!”
“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 :-)”
“It is now Friday afternoon in Santa Monica. I returned late Monday night after I decided to skip my layover in Taipei… feeling blissful when I got back to LA because of a wonderful vacation.
We’ve had waves here all week. Decent for Malibu, which means chest high on the sets, super crowded, but fun little peelers. Nothing like the head high to double overhead macking perfection that we experienced in the Telo Islands!
I have traveled the world and surfed many of the world-class breaks. Upon reflection, this was the greatest surf trip ever, not only because of the epic waves, but because of the people and the magical environment in which we thrived. It was great to meet each and every one of you, mostly lawyers, but all of you have indeed the Spirit of a surfing lawyer! Memories will be forever etched in my mind about that wonderful week at latitude zero with latitude Larry! I was particularly inspired by our awards dinner in the wonderful songs and speeches made mostly by barristers.
From the bottom of my heart, thank each and every one of you for making this surf journey so incredibly special! After all, all of us surfers are joined by one ocean!”
