“Many thanks to Walter, Chad, Yeyen and all the staff at Resort Latitude Zero. We all had the most epic trip of a life time with the greatest waves you could take us to. The Resort, food and staff are all 5 star and one could not of asked for any more. We are all looking forward to returning back to Latitude Zero to finish what we started.” – Anthony Parry
“To my dearest family. Thank you to all of you… Jen, Matt and kids for making my stay so wonderful.”
“Cheers RLZ crew for all the great memories.”
“Sensational!! Excellent place, people, waves & food. Living the dream!”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
I just wanted to email you guys from the NOMAD and all involved to thank you on behalf of the boys for everything and for an amazing trip. All the boys absolutely loved the trip and I’m sure Mark loved it too. It was so well organised, the crew were absolutely awesome in every way possible, food 10/10, fishing, waves, relaxing, it had everything. You guys have nailed it in every way possible. I will be recommending it to all my mates and will be back on it again one day.Thanks Shaun
“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.”
“Firstly many thanks for kindly looking after myself and Nerea for 10 days over the Easter break, we had an awesome time – you guys are the ultimate professionals. I’d like to book again for next year for myself and Nerea. Just let me know if you have any vacancies and thank you so much again for running such a great operation!”
“After many years of not surfing, I was hesitant to embark on a trip surfing Indonesian reef breaks. I shouldn’t have worried, the crew at Resort Latitude Zero had it all covered. A memorable two weeks and I survived to surf another day.” – Peter O’Brien
“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
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.
“A really enjoyable experience, fabulous hosts and acommodation 4 stars plus, with great waves ( wow) 🙂 and sensational staff !!!” – Edward Messara
“Best surf trip. Accommodation and staff were great. Especially Yeyen and Adam. I always felt welcome and comfortable after the first day.” – Blenn Fujimoto
“Great time, helpful staff. Very nice accommodation.”- Neil Lantzke
“Absolutly terrific. Great value (I’m pretty picky). Thanks for a great time.” – Rob Medoff
“The product you have is excellent, but it is the way you and your people sell it that makes it so special. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience from Missy fussing over us at Padang, to Joel getting us to the QANTAS desk as they were closing in Jakarta. Your staff are a credit to you – the balance of attention without being in your face is perfect. The food was magnificent. You and Jenny were great hosts, and your kids are truly delightful. Adam and S’man are fabulous blokes and are great assets to you. And the waves, weather, back drops – well words fail us.” – Gerome Van Der Linden
Thanks to RLZ for another incredible trip. We really enjoyed our stay in the main resort last year, but the 10 days in the Bungalows this year was on another level. It just doesn’t get any better than surfing uncrowded waves with 3 of your best mates in a remote paradise in 5 star luxury! Throw in terrific food and great surf guiding /coaching and it creates a surf experience which is the best we’ve ever had.
“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.”
“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.”
“We had the most incredible trip! Thanks so much for all you help and the RLZ team defiantly have to get back there soon.”
“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 for a fantastic week of surf, food and fun. No one does it better than you.”
“I would also like to say a huuuuuge thank you to you and all your amazing staff. Truly commendable for the incredible effort on making not only ours but everyones stay so enjoyable,
You must be very proud of your staff and the resort you have set up. It has to be one of the most exceptionally run, friendly, adaptable, welcoming and enjoyable resorts we have stayed at. We absolutely loved it all and not to mention scoring rangas for nearly half the time we were there…..
So thank you again Matt from us both to each and everyone of you, the awesome guys Chad, Wal, Adz, Rob, John, Seagull, the smiley fun boat boys – Robin, Julian, Andri, Roi, the lovely reception/massage/hostess/waitress ladies, – Santy, Mani, Rizi, Unity, the wonderful chefs/kitchen guys, housekeeping/maintainance and security and of course not forgetting the one and only Larry!!) Hope to see you again next year!
ps. hope i havnt forgotten anyone…..Brain fuzz, still recovering! Sending a big grateful group hug. All the very best.”
“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.”
“Best place on earth. A genuine honour to be apart of what you have created.”
“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 🙂
“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.”
“It has taken me 30 years to get to Indonesia, but the wait has been worth it. RLZ has made my dreams come true. Surf, fishing, resort, food, staff and mates 5 star.”
“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.”
“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!!!!”
Wow, what a great trip, hats off to all of you on providing a great place, empty waves and good times all round.
I got back a week ago and showed some mates photos of resort and waves, needless to say the call is in for a trip next year.
“Just wanted to drop you a quick note of appreciation. Les, myself and Colin had a phenomenal time at the resort. Everything was just perfect! You have a top notch crew there and all three of us had the time of our lives. Thanks for running such a great organisation/resort!”
“Terrific beach, great staff, incredible experience. I hope it stays like this forever.”
“Fantastic” – Toni Duncan
“Best place I want come back next holiday.”
