“This is the best place ever to have my 16th birthday. Thanks a lot to everybody for making it special and memorable.”
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!
“The best resort in the surf game, run by the coolest core bunch of surfers… food to die for… truly living in abundance at rlz.”
“We have just returned from our stint at RLZ and we are all amazed with the place. So much so I was after some package details for next year.”
“Just wanted to say another thank you for our week on your island. The whole family had a blast and are talking about coming back next year already!! Had a few “fun” moments getting home but I guess these just make the memories and stories more exciting.
A credit to you and your staff for the hospitality shown and we won’t hesitate to recommend Latitude Zero to all our friends.”
Magic – one of the great experiences of my life – I love the staff.”
“Cheers to the awesome crew Matt & Jen. Amazing Resort and fun times. Good fish & surf. See ya soon!”
“2nd trip here and so happy to have come back. Best surf Resort we have ever been to. Amazing food, guides, staff. Can’t fault it. We’ll be back.”
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.
“Excellent” – Randall Gardiner
“Thank you for such an amazing holiday for my family. . . We will all miss you!!.”
“Awesome trip as always, never a bad day – No matter the weather.”
“Sick place, sick surf. Ads the surfguide is a legend.”
Great Resort and haven’t had service like this in Oz for 20 years. Very accommodating.
“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.”
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.
“Your partners and crew are second to non mate it made my 40th one of the most memorable weeks i have ever had we all had the time of our lives with some of the best waves i have ever ridden. Adam and Gemma rock and the staff couldnt do enough for us thanks again.”
– Jason Mercer
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.
“It has been a special privilege to enjoy paradise in unrivalled luxury. Thank You to all the attentive staff. A special thanks to chad for showing us a new cocktail.”
“Un petit coin de paradies à préserver. Luxe, calme et volupté! Equipe RLZ aux petits soins, bateaux à disposition pour explorer l’ensemble des vagues de rêve des Telo. Guides sont toujours parfait, Matt family adorable. On se sent comme à la maison. Merci pour tout!”
“Just a short note to say that you have some really great guys and gals at RLZ. Wal does a great job at running the show and making the guests feel very welcome. Andrew is a great surf guide and along with “Furry” made my visit the most memorable yet. Andrew really does make a tremendous effort to make the long hours on the boat as fun as possible. He makes sure that all of the guys on the boat get their fair share of waves and laughs. Santi and Dewi do a great job that after a hard days surfing that all the guests are fed and watered. I am looking forward to my Jan trip.”
“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.”
“Been to a number of surf resorts over past 6 years and RLZ wins hands down. Food, staff & accommodation all excellent. Thanks.”

“Hope you guys are well! Thanks heaps for putting Grant & I up and looking after us so well at the resort!! We had an awesome time and even though we didn’t plan on staying a few extra days it was great to really experience Resort Latitude Zero. The Resort is incredible & the food blew me away. Cracker menu Wal! The staff & surf guides were all really helpful as well. It was never too much trouble for Wal, Ferrie, Gema to drive us either North or South looking for waves in the conditions. The general facilities are amazing and the gym and games area tops it off. Cheers. Kind Regards.” – Justin Scanlan
“Perfection does get better! ! Well done RLZ team. See you in 2015.”
“Hard to beat perfection! See you next year…YEW!” – Griffen
“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!”
“It is the little things that makes the diffence. The board caddies, day runners, laundry service, hot water, cold beers! room service, food etc. Unbelievable.”
“Very friendly staff, great acommodation & great waves. Chad, Adam & Yeyen excellent, and Larry way cute.” – Nick Pond
“To my dearest family. Thank you to all of you… Jen, Matt and kids for making my stay so wonderful.”
“Just letting you know Swilly’s photos made it home OK. I have made two backups and also given most of the guys their images.
Thanks again for sharing a great couple of weeks with us and for the awesome photos. All of us are in agreement that you were a key factor in making the trip so amazing. I hope you are having as much fun this seek and that all your travels coming up go smoothly.”
“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.”
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 and surf! See ya soon!”
