“Hi Matt Joel, Chad and Adam. We just got back to Australia, and I wanted to send a thank you to you guys for a great trip Christine and I really enjoyed it, also thanks again for the extra effort for the last 2 days there. I got to surf 4 spots in one day on the 2nd to last day and then surf rangers on my last morning and get a few barrels which was the icing on the cake!!! I will let my friends know.Thanks again Steven and Christine Deveney.”
” 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
“Just got back from my 5th trip today, Matt & Jen never disappoint.”
“Surfection!!! Best Indo location. Will be back.”
“It was amazing, 14 days of bliss. Will be back as soon as possible. Christmas day in paradise!!!”
“We had a stokealishious time, frothing on these amazing waves. Look out for us groms next year.”
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!
“Just a brief message to let you know how much we all enjoyed our stay at RLZ. We were lucky enough to surf some excellent Ranga’s & Bommers & various other breaks during our stay. Your resort & staff, from the surf guides, boat crews & resort workers, in my opinion are all first class. You have a great team!!”
“After multiple trips the “Good Ship RLZ” and all who sail her never cease to impress! This trip was an absolute cracker in every way. We surfed until we couldn’t surf anymore! My smiling muscles are as sore as my arms!
I’ve said it before but I honestly can’t imagine how you could do it any better. Surfing the way it should be!! Well done.”
“Had a fantastic trip – great waves and a great bit of timeout.”
“Amazing environment & people. We will be back!! Loved it.”
“We just returned from Telo trip and we are all over the moon with whole experience. It was sensational. The place is fabulous and the staff are fantastic …. Oh and the surf was unbelievable.”
“Words can’t explain the joy and fun I have had.” – Mathew Henderson
“Thanks for looking after us last week. Its been great going through the photos and reliving what an amazing week it was.”
“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.”
As usual, you and your staff were simply terrific. I have tried and now I believe that I have succeeded in hopefully starting the next generation of our group to make it a point to get to RLZ. As I understand it, there will be a group of four from out group traveling next year to RLZ. I believe that the group will come back in 2018. There will probably be a bunch of new guys as we try to keep feeding the stoke.
By the way, if you need testimony regarding Swilly, he is worth it. He’s a professional and does tremendous work. He takes so many shots that one could easily find that one or more memorable shot(s) that may wind up on a wall in a traveler’s home. Swilly is also such a great companion on the boat, my goodness, he is entertainment and creates great friendships.
Matt, if I have a criticism of the total package, I’d say that incredibly, there may be too much of an entree during dinner. Maybe we’re smaller eaters, but with the exquisite ‘pupus” prior to dinner, it seemed at times that we were just overfed (if that’s possible). BTW, I liked the buffet style dinners of the past. Yet, who can complain. You still, in my opinion, have the very best surf destination.
Hey, who knows, I may show up in 2018. Thanks again.
“Cheers to the awesome crew Matt & Jen. Amazing Resort and fun times. Good fish & surf. See ya soon!”
“Would like to say a big thanks for a awesome trip for this August…..Cheers and see you again next year…”
“After nearly 6 years with World Surfaris, I am finishing up today 04-SEP for a long holiday and to take on a new adventure in life.
It has been an amazing few years in a dream job but I feel like the time has come for a change.
4 weeks of holidays just isn’t enough so I am heading back to Uni to become a teacher so I can have plenty of holidays J
It was a pleasure dealing with you over the years and an even greater pleasure to have had the chance to visit and stay at Resort Lat Zero a few years ago.
Lat Zero is an incredible place by itself but in my eyes your operation on the whole (RLZ/Nomad/Mango) leads the way in the surf tourism industry.
Obviously having experienced guys like yourself and Captain Mark who can see weather/surf conditions change before other operators and swooping in on that is a big advantage over others.
The amount of repeat client bookings and RLZ booking for 2016 is a testament to the operation.”
“Thank you for your wonderful hospitality at RLZ it truly was a trip of a lifetime.”
“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.
“Really loved the experience. You guys simply get it 100% right. The entire stay from arrival to departure was amazing. Definitely the best surf trip of my life.”
“Just thought I would write to let you know that we tried another Sumatran location in November and sincerly wished we had come back to you guys. It is not a patch on your service and quality of product. Food was *&%$ resort in a bad state of repair Indonesian staff slack to name but a few problems. The only positive thing is their location. I love to hear compliments on my own service in our business so I though it only fitting that i let you know how good your product is. Hope to see you late next year if finances and circumstances allow. Please pass my comments onto Wal, Rob and all the crew.”
“You have done a great job on the design and setup of the resort and boats – the staff were all great and the food fantastic. Joel was a great manager. I’m interested in enquiring into details for next year and possibly 2015.”
“I just wanted to take the opportunity to sincerely thank Swilly for his contribution to our trip. It was a pleasure to meet you after seeing your work over the years.
I’m really happy with my pics…takes a true professional to make an ageing ‘grom at heart’ look good! Your stories added to the atmosphere of the whole trip and its one I’ll remember forever.
The boys are already talking up another trip to RLZ and I hope if you are available, we have the opportunity to share that one with you as well. Safe travels wherever that may take you and look forward to seeing your work in the future!”
“I’m writing to express my thanks to you and all the team at RLZ for a really amazing couple of weeks. We had a great time yet again and I personally would like to express my thanks to all the team at the resort, particularly Joel, Wal, Chad all the boat crews. They did a great job, particularly in the first week, with a large group of young boys with varying surfing abilities in conditions, which delivered the largest swell of the season! An amazing time was had by all, personally my boys had the time of their lives.
The resort is really a credit to you and your team, it runs like clockwork, excellent food and accommodation and of course a great team of dedicated staff.
Well done and thanks.”
