“Great trip. I was nervous not going with the boat option. Best surf trip ever.” – Dicko
“Everything was excellent”
“This is the best place ever to have my 16th birthday. Thanks a lot to everybody for making it special and memorable.”
I wanted to thank you for an absolutely awesome trip; I left early as you know so didn’t manage to fill in a questionnaire afterwards but well here is my take! The accommodation excellent; all the blood, sweat and tears that went into those beautiful bungalows was 100% worth it; really felt VIP staying there; mission accomplished; very cool. The food & menu was very nice; whether buffet or table serving; just a really good variety. You recall me saying/believing that happy staff are more important than happy customers and your staff are amazing. So I am being a bit “gushy” now but I am being completely honest and open with you!
“Had a great time at RLZ the team out there were first class.”
“Best surf trip in my life so far. Only thing that could be improved is that I should have stayed longer!! Accommodation, food, staff, boats and surf are all top shelf! Adam our surf guide got us tons of waves and I especially appreciate his coaching me on backside barrel riding.”
“Absolutely Sensational!” – Graham Judd
“I am sorry it has taken six weeks to send you a letter to say thanks for the best holiday a couple of country boys could of asked for. Everything we experienced with Resort Latitude Zero was absolute top shelf Matt, from making the booking with Deb, the management, guides & resort staff were of the highest quality.
We were also really thankful for the hospitality we received in Padang while overnighting there on the way home, I think it was Yen who looked after us, she topped off an amazing two weeks. We loved it and hope to get back to the Telo Islands and in particular your place in a year or two.”
“No major swells but had insane trip. Heaps of waves, great weather. Definitely be returning.”
“The best holiday I’ve experienced – The Resort, the people, the surf, everything was top class, even Larry was a top dog! I will be returning some time in the future. Cheers!”
“Awestruck ! The location, accommodation, food, waves, staff were amazing. Thank you so much for creating this experience. The ultimate surf trip!” – Richard Tudor
“We are back home after a very fun trip. Your Resort is very well run. The staff seemed very eager to accomodate us and make our stay a good one. The surf was fun every day. We had plenty of time in the water. We enjoyed the other guests on the island. Larry is a great dog. The only complaint(?) is that the staff served too much food for dinner. Anyway, we are grateful for the experience.”
“Best place on earth.”
“3 trips here. Always the best. Best accommodations, staff, surf areas, surf. Matt has a terrific thing going for folks like us. We should be back again.”
“Massive shout out to the latitude crew. Awesome surf guides, waves and resort!! So many memories, I’ll be back to slay more waves.”
“Matt & Jen, the kids and all the staff made this the best holiday my wife and I have ever had, with unreal food and digs, plus the most awesome waves I have ever surfed!!! Bleeding to see Pinnacles going off as we flew out, about 6 to 8! Almost busted the Emergency Exit! Thanks to all and see you next year for more of same! Cheers Col & Mandy” – Col Hicks
“Everything about the holiday was great! We’re already planning to do it again. Big tick for everybody including Yen who took Neale and myself on a shopping/dining tour of Padang on the day we had to spend there. Totally stoked with everything!!”
“I just wanted to drop a line to say thanks. We all had a great time, scratches, cuts, and broken boards (2 in one session to Pete Brockhoff at Rangas!!) not withstanding.
But everyone at the resort from Joel down to Larry the Wonder Dog contributed to a fantastic stay. Special mention to Sman the man. Great surf guide, nothing was too much trouble, he really did go the extra nautical mile to ensure we had great waves and memories. Even negotiating a pretty heavy inside section at Outside Moneys to take shots just because he likes that angle. He is a real asset to your op, but I’ m sure you already know this.
Anyway we are already lining up for next year!”
“All ready booked next year! Sick waves and amazing crew / food / accommodation. Out of everywhere worldwide surfing this has been the best / most consistent quality yet.”
“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
“Surfection!!! Best Indo location. Will be back.”
“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!!!
“Thanks again for another awesome trip, in particular to Joel for providing us with every opportunity for waves and fun times and for tolerating some of our less desirable antics. The level of service provided by you and all of your staff from housekeeping and F & B staff through to the to the surf guides is what makes the trip and we are genuinely appreciative. Thanks Matt for creating a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet our heroes, its something we will cherish forever.”
“Cheers RLZ crew for all the great memories.”
“Finally home after another awesome trip with you guys. Once again the boys and I can’t thank you and all the staff enough for looking after us every step of the way .
A special thanks to Albert and Firry who found us waves every day and kept us surfing.
If you could send me what’s slots are available for 2016 and 2017 for the resort and for the Mangalui it would be appreciated.”
“Very difficult to find any faults. Accommodation, staff & attention to detail is fabulous. Great guides and surf. Will be back for sure.”
“Thanks again for the awesome surfing experience we had at Resort Latitude Zero. Your staff and facilities are definitely world class and provide everyone the opportunity to “charge or relax” at there own pace.”
“Thanks to all the crew once again for a great time had by all in May just gone…..want to do it all again.”
“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 :-)”
“The food never missed a beat. It was great that all the staff remember everyones name.”
“Last year I had an amazing surf trip with Mark Occhilupo, Ash Grunwald & Mark Gasnier. Quite simply, I was the fourth best surfer there and there was a big gap between 3rd and 4th:) I had an absolute ball.”
“Top trip. Cheers lat zero!”
“Just a quick email to say that we had a great trip to Lat Zero. We scored some real fun waves and hopefully we’ll get back there in the next year or two.”
“Terrific beach, great staff, incredible experience. I hope it stays like this forever.”
“Fantastic” – Toni Duncan
“Thanks RLZ absolutely fantastic waves, food, guides and staff. Will definitely be back.”
“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!”
“Snapped 3 boards, got the squints and the best barrel of my life. Stoked !!”
” Both Scott and I wanted to send a massive sincere thank you to you and Jen for making our trip to the Telos extremely awesome!! The Resort you have built is outstanding and our expectations were certainly well exceeded … which in this industry is hard to do sometimes!
Being surrounded by such wonderful people was great for the soul and we enjoyed every single second of our trip. Particularly our candlelit dinner on the beach! Oh, and the laundry service is so unreal, I’m wondering how I can get that at home!
The staff you have working on the Island are just fantastic! Joel is a gem who ensured we were very well looked after. We really appreciated meeting them all and our gratitude for their efforts goes out to all of them. Meanwhile, we are back to work, trying our best to hang on for as long as possible to that island vibe … Thanks again Matt. We look forward to seeing you again soon! ” – Claire & Scott
