“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.”
“Thank you to you and your workers for another great stay. I really enjoyed my holiday and I will be back again in January with some friends. Albert and Furry were absolutely fantastic on the boat. They contributed a lot to the very friendly atmosphere on our days out surfing. It would be a very long holiday on the boat if you didn’t have 2 very positive catalysts for a good and relaxing time like these guys. And the shore crew were equally as good. I don’t know how you do your employing but you definitely seem to have a “no dickheads policy”.
The boat trip over to Telo was very memorable. So much so that I bought the Nomad tee shirt as a souvenir. Captain Will’s cool head did a great job in giving us novice sailors a lot of confidence during some pretty rough weather and sea sickness. In addition he was a very attentive host. See you in Jan.”
“Amazing waves, great staff, cant wait to come 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!”
“Great Trip amazing waves with 5 star service. Guides put us into waves everyday, and plenty of cold beer.”
“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!”
“Just wanted to say g’day and let you know what an awesome trip I had last week. We were obviously lucky with the swell, waves were phenomenal and a special mention to Sman and Swilly who were great value and fantastic company. Also to the other staff Julian, Firry, Santi, Dewi, Wayo (don’t know spelling) and the chefs. As a first trip to Indo it would be hard to surpass but will certainly try to repeat it, this time with some mates for next year. I will be in touch again.”
“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.”
“Back Again – not sure at 66 will be able to do this again. Paddling around Indian Ocean with my three sons, a lifetime memory – thanks RLZ.”
“Sensational!! Excellent place, people, waves & food. Living the dream!”
“Words can’t explain the joy and fun I have had.” – Mathew Henderson
“What a great place & people. Thanks loads for looking after us all. . . Cheers RLZ crew for all the great memories. Loved every minute.”
“Thank you for such an amazing holiday for my family. . . We will all miss you!!.”
“Fantastic. Some of the best waves of my life. The service at the resort was first class. brilliant!” – Peter Simmons
“First time was fantastic. Second time even better. Quality waves, quality food, quality company. We will be back in 2015.
“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
“Thanks RLZ absolutely fantastic waves, food, guides and staff. Will definitely be back.”
“Super impressed will be back. Adam was an awesome guide.”
“Perfection does get better! ! Well done RLZ team. See you in 2015.”
“Just wanted to let you know (and if you can pass it on to Matt, Adam, Chad, Andy & crew) that we all had a bloody fantastic time! Unbelievably good surf, sensational food & a cruisey welcoming & knowledgeable gang running the place. Our surf guide , Adam certainly knew where to head to, to give us a week of perfect surf. We were all so very grateful of Adam’s spot choices and his knowledge of the area. We were all a little flat with having to leave, which says it all. Definitely going to book for next year, but longer.”
I just want to say thank you for the awesome trip out to RLZ. To have the imagination yet alone skill and determination to make that place a reality is beyond me. The staff, food, facilities and waves were nothing short of first class. If I were to choose only one camp to go to for the rest of my life, RLZ would be it. In fact, I’ve just decided, it is the only camp I will ever go to.
“Thanks Joely, Chad, Ads, and all the lads for another awesome trip. Yewwwwwww!”
“Another Level. Staff have everything covered. Great room, food, service. 5 stars.”
“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.”
“Great waves, great guide, great staff & a fantastic resort. Couldn’t have asked for anything more, well maybe a few more left! Will be back.”
“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.”
“This is the best place ever to have my 16th birthday. Thanks a lot to everybody for making it special and memorable.”
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
“Awesome time, great hospitality from the staff, fulfilled a dream. Shall return.”
“Just got back from my 5th trip today, Matt & Jen never disappoint.”
RLZ is absolutely beautiful, the surf was fantastic and the food delicious. Just returned from a fab fortnight at RLZ. Obviously we enjoyed ourselves as I’m wondering what the vacancies are for next year.”
“Snapped 3 boards, got the squints and the best barrel of my life. Stoked !!”
“Mat and Jenny, thanks for making our stay the best holiday we have ever had, the freshie boys can’t stop talking about the place and the great wave’s, have been showing off the DVD to everyone you might need a bigger resort next year to fit in the rest off the boys, say hi to Shane, Chad and the staff for me and look forward to catching up next year.” – Glen Kelly
“A really enjoyable experience fabulous hosts and accommodation 4 stars plus, with great waves (WOW).” – Edward Messara
“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!!!!”
“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!”
“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.”
“2nd Trip – Just as good as the 1st.”
Come on a journey aboard the fully-equipped 60’ timber sloop Nomad which frequents some of the finest lefts and rights Indonesia has to offer. The Nomad is all about surfing, adventure and sharing the stoke.
She is a magnificent 84 foot timber sloop, custom built for the sole purpose of searching for waves.
