Bungalow’s are epic – stayed in one during our recent trip to Resort Latitude Zero. Takes your stay to a whole ‘nother level (smile emoticon).
“Cheers to the awesome crew Matt & Jen. Amazing Resort and fun times, good fish and surf! See ya soon!”
“A big thank you for the best holiday, great surf, great food and accommodation and the staff made it extra special.” – Jeff Mercer
Best trip. Our surf guide was energetic, knowledgeable of the surf and a very hard worker. He guided us through all the surf breaks as well as our own surfing and how to improve. Best surf guide you could ever ask for!
“Keep going the same way. Our holiday has been so full with joy & adventure firsts. Happy kids, happy husband, happy family. Thank You. x x x”
“Hard to beat perfection! See you next year…YEW!” – Griffen
Just one word; “Wow!”
We had the pleasure of staying in one of the newly constructed bungalows at Resort Latitude Zero for our summer surf trip. It’s the 3rd time we’ve been to RLZ, and staying in the bungalow just took our trip to a whole ‘nother level.
It’s hard to beat having your own private spot right on the beach, being lulled to sleep by the sound of waves lapping a few metres from your deck.
The room is huge. Never mind having enough space to swing a cat, you could swing a whole cattery in here without a hitch! Super comfy king-sized bed, with another daybed in the one corner, and a big counter area on the opposite side of the room, which houses a mini-bar, plenty of shelf space/storage and a computer desk.
There’s a walk-in wardrobe room with tons of shelf space and hanging space, you’d be hard-pressed to use it all! Also a full length mirror so you can check to see that your boardie/Tshirt/flipflop combo won’t scare anyone!
The bathroom has a counter-top basin and big mirror, with wall recesses both sides, and an under counter shelf, so plenty space for all the vanities. The rain shower is perfect to wash away all the days salt-water.
Really liked the floor lights that came on automatically when you entered the bathroom, so no need to fumble around for light switches in the middle of the night. (there are also proximity sensor lights on the deck, so when you come back in the evenings you can see what’s going on)
Plenty of plug points throughout the room so you can charge everything at once. Personally don’t think you’d ever be able to use them all at once, there’s that many. There’s also in-room wifi available.
Lots of windows to let natural light in, covered by mosquito screens to ensure its just light and fresh air that gets in, and the bugs stay out! Other than the odd ant or two, we had no bugs in our room at all. And that was over a 5 week period. So no need to stress if you a bug-phobe.
The outside deck is awesome, just wished we’d had the opportunity to use it more – but were out surfing every day instead! It’s a lovely private space to chill out. Did manage to sneak in the odd guitar sesh out there just before dinner, with Larry arriving as the first chord was strummed. It’s a great spot to have a late arvo cocktail and watch the sun set.
Or if you’re a morning person – you can see the sun rise right out front. Noticed that a few times when some of the more enthusiastic frothers in our group wanted to do some really early morning starts!
You get the best of both worlds, still part of all the goings on at the resort, but then you can retire to your private space when you want some peace and quiet. Double whammy. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend a bungalow stay, and will most definitely be staying in one on our next trip.
Well done to Matt, Wal and the RLZ crew for this great addition to the resort.
“No complaints. Excellent staff. Excellent time. Thanks.” – Jack Tomlinson
“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
“Best surf trip. Accommodation and staff were great. Especially Yeyen and Adam. I always felt welcome and comfortable after the first day.” – Blenn Fujimoto
“Would like to say a big thanks for a awesome trip for this August…..Cheers and see you again next year…”
“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 :-)”
“Awesome time, great hospitality from the staff, fulfilled a dream. Shall return.”

“Thank you for your wonderful hospitality at RLZ it truly was a trip of a lifetime.”
“Memories that will last a lifetime and will endeavour to return. . .”
Just wanted to say what a fantastic trip I had even though we were a bit unlucky with the swell this time. Matt has put a fantastic team of people together and created a really positive and cheerful vibe at the resort. As for Andy (Sman), the guy is just a really nice bloke – a great guide and a great guy – helpful, happy and always positive and encouraging. As you can see my third trip to RLZ was as good as the first!
“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.”
“The trip was all the time!! Everyone was so friendly & welcoming, the food 5 star quality. The saying of the trip ” You can do what ever you like” made our holiday that much better. Waves & photo’s were amazing & was the perfect setting for our beautiful engagement – at lovers point! A place we will never forget & most definitely be returning to! Thank you for all the staff for the perfect holiday!” – Kate & Trent 🙂

We are already planning our return for next year. Take care and see you soon. Merci Beaucoup.” – Frederic Bardinet
“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!”
Best surf trip for all around experience I have been on and I surf internationally yearly. Incredible staff, everyone was attentive and knew my name on Day 2.
Great Resort and haven’t had service like this in Oz for 20 years. Very accommodating.
“Sensational!! Excellent place, people, waves & food. Living the dream!”
“Wolf and I had a great time at RLZ, in spite of the bad weather the end of last week. Can’t wait to get back – we will probably do the boat/land package next time. We really appreciate what you have created and wanted to give a special shout out to Joel and Adam – great watermen and very cool guys to hang out with.
I am particularly appreciative of their tending to Wolf’s reef cut on his elbow. They did a stellar job keeping him in the water and smiling! Food was terrific and the rest of the staff were all great and super friendly. A fantastic set up surrounded by some epic surf. We look forward to seeing you guys again, after our summer holidays.”
“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.”
“Thanks for a great holiday. Friendly staff and guides, some good waves, great relax.”
“Outstanding. Thanks for adapting to high numbers & conference demands.” – Ywain Lawrey
“Just a short note to say many thanks to you and all of your fantastic staff at RLZ for putting together one of the best surf trips I’ve experienced,it really was excellent and very much appreciated by me.
The consistent high standards and level of service in and out of the water at every level including location, accommodation, food, guides (Andrew), boats, staff and of course the surf were all very impressive and a real credit to everyone involved at RLZ.
You have created something very special and unique in the surfing world for which you and your wife should justifiably be very proud of and it was an absolute pleasure and privilege for me to experience the results of all your many years of hard work and passion in creating RLZ, so again many thanks for just a great surfing week experience. All the best.”
“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.”
“Once again thanks to all the crew at Resort Latitude Zero for another great trip. The staff get better, facilities improve and the waves, if possible, get better. Please pass on our thanks to all the team and your family!”
“Thanks for looking after us last week. Its been great going through the photos and reliving what an amazing week it was.”
” 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
