Thanks for such a wonderful holiday!
The new bungalows have taken the whole Resort Latitude Zero experience to a new level: they’re beautiful and luxurious. We loved the privacy, the views and the little touches like the essential oils.
Keep up the good work!
“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 best surfing trip in Indonesia.”
“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.”
“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.”
“Sick place, sick surf. Ads the surfguide is a legend.”
“A really enjoyable experience fabulous hosts and accommodation 4 stars plus, with great waves (WOW).” – Edward Messara
“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.”
“Best place I want come back next holiday.”
“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 :-)”
“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.”
Our surf guide went over and above to make sure we had an awesome experience. We all appreciate the extra effort he showed in the evening to make sure we had wheat we needed for the next day. He also prepped us on conditions each morning. We all noticed and appreciated the extra effort. The best surf trip ever!
“We came and scored excellent waves, the 2nd best surfer from Penrith. Go the Panthers.”
“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
“We had an amazing time, the place really was mind-blowing and hard to describe adequately to people back at home. Your prompt attention to all the emails I sent you was greatly appreciated and the whole process was pretty stress-free.”
“The food never missed a beat. It was great that all the staff remember everyones name.”
“Fantastic. Some of the best waves of my life. The service at the resort was first class. brilliant!” – Peter Simmons
“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.”
“Now that I have had a chance to go thru the pix you saved onto my storage hard drive I have a better idea of what you have given me. Just wanted to say “thanks very much” for the enthusiasm, encouragement and humor that you injected into our contact out at Latitude Zero and in the water.
Some of those photo’s in the surf are just terrific. I will have those forever and have you to thank. So THANK YOU!” – Swilly Professional Photographer Package
“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”
“I have been trying to come up with a way to explain my stay at the greatest place on earth and the words just escape me every time I sit and start typing. I will say a little bit but I will have to come back later because when I think about it I just want to be at Lat-zero right now and one knows he needs to work and get things done. I’m having writers block and i’m not a writer. This place rocks the dunia out of anywhere I have ever surfed and I only touched like 4 of the main waves and was blown away. I have driven more miles than I care to say in search of the perfect waves or even a wave but there is no need for that ever again. My next trip will be Latitude Zero to continue to drink fresh young coconuts, read amazing book, have the best food in Indonesia, swim in the most epic water, dance in the moonlight on the pristine untouched beach, hang with world class surfers and get coached by them too in a way, do the dolphin swim with the cutest underwater child ever, watch the other amazing water children swim and dance to the beat of the island. ETC like I said I have writers block but you get the gist and I didn’t ever really say anything about the surf which I will say was amazing 10 days out of 11 the 11th day I was just too tired. ha.. Hope all who choose to journey here find time to breath again like I did. Thank you all at Latitude Zero my life is 10X’s better that it has ever been. I will be back with coconut openers. Aloha A hui you” – Shaylan Allmen
“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.”
“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.”
“Awestruck ! The location, accommodation, food, waves, staff were amazing. Thank you so much for creating this experience. The ultimate surf trip!” – Richard Tudor
“Thanks for an unbelievable trip to RLZ. Adjusting back to the real world hasn’t been easy ! Especially when it’s only 8 degrees in Adelaide ! So, I figure I’d better start planning my next trip to lat zero !”
“Great waves again 2013, 2014. See you in 2015.”
“Everyone had a great time – surfers + the girls. Food, surf,stuff, spa and gorgeous scenery made this a wonderful time away from all!!”
“I just thought I would give you some feedback. The new plane service is excellent. According to Tim Cooper (who is also a pilot) the pilots were professional and thorough/no shortcuts.
The staff and management were great! Wal runs things very smoothly and Indo staff always happy and helpful. A good vibe. Special mention goes to Andrew our surf guide. He is a great guy, always enthusiastic, always willing to help us or the Indos in order to give us a good experience. Shared his knowledge on the winds and islands and even gave tips to some of the boys on ideas for surfboards that might benefit them in the future. Keep him!
Only one improvement that I can think of and that would be some specially designed back support cushioning for the boats. And by the way Room 1 was great. Cheers.”
“Good times, great waves. May the froth be with you!”
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.
“Best trip ever.I felt like royalty, treated like kings. Everyone is kind and happy. Hope to come back soon.” – Dean Kuhio Campos
