“The quality of service, the great surf guides and the friendly faces are why we came back to RLZ.”
“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.”
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
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!
“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
“Best place on earth.”
“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 :-)”
“Cheers Joel and all the crew – home now in the very crisp and chilly south west – 7 days is just no where near long enough.”
“To my dearest family. Thank you to all of you… Jen, Matt and kids for making my stay so wonderful.”
“This place has it all. My surf guide Adam was so good. The boys and I had a great time. Cheers Lat Zero.”
“Many thanks to Walter, Shane,Chad and the rest of the Resort Latitude Zero crew for a unreal surfing experience. Also to Shane & Wal your medical work was held in high regard at the Doctors back here, cheers.” – John Ayling
“Looking forward to getting back for a 3rd time in August. You guys do it well.”
“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.”
“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.”
“In every aspect Fantastic!” – Gordon Schoffl
“Exceptional service from everyone. You couldn’t ask for more – surf guides are legends and experts in hospitality. Special thanks to Joel, Ad’s, Firry and Roi.” – Damian Martin
“All ready booked next year! Sick waves and amazing crew / food / accommodation. Out of everywhere worldwide surfing this has been the best / most consistent quality yet.”
“This is the best place ever to have my 16th birthday. Thanks a lot to everybody for making it special and memorable.”
“Sensational!! Excellent place, people, waves & food. Living the dream!”
“Thanks for a fantastic week of surf, food and fun. No one does it better than you.”
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!
“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.”
“Awesome trip as always, never a bad day – No matter the weather.”
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.
“Thanks again for the opportunity to stay at your Resort. We had an awesome time again and are amazed at how well you guys operate the place. It’s one of life’s genuine treasures to be able to stay there and we reckon that every surfer worth his salt should experience Resort Latitude Zero. Please also thank Sman again for as he provided a hell of a lot of laughs for us and got us onto great waves. Nath has stated that the food was as good as he as experienced which when you consider he eats for a living that’s not a bad compliment. Also like to thank you for having Mis look after during our stop over on the way home. That was bloody impressive and greatly appreciated by the boys, particularly the restaurant she took us to, which the boys were amazed at. Have a great remainder of the season and we look for to cranking another trip up next year. Cheers” – Michael Sidebottom
“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.”
Dear Rlz, thank you for what was one of the most memorable holidays of my life, your staff, accommodation, amenities, food and level of commitment to providing the best possible customer experience was second to none. I’m already saving for next year and can’t wait to see you all again.
All the best,
“This is by far the best surf experience I have had. I could not recommend this highly enough and will be back : ). Surf guide was awesome. By far the cleanest resort of its type and puts any number of 5 star hotels to shame.”
“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 !”
“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
Well, we’re all settling back into the work grind, but the stoke will last a lifetime. Just wanted to pass on a huge thanks for our amazing stay at RLZ. Our expectations were high before we arrived, but we were absolutely blown away by the setup – and as a bonus, the surf pumped!
The resort is amazing, and Wal, Chad and all the staff did everything possible to keep the stoke level high – fantastic. You guys have put together a great place and team to ensure the perfect surf trip. Also, the two surf guides we had – Smanny and Seagull -these guys are absolute legends. So generous with their time and advice, giving us all great tips on each spot, calling us into waves well beyond our comfort level and genuinely stoked to see us catching waves – they did everything possible to get us into the best waves all day every day, nothing was a problem. Just great friendly guys who were a pleasure to go surfing with. And with Firry and Roi on board, it was good banter and laughs all day. Legends.
Best surf trip ever? Definitely – 10 days x 6 hours a day x nil crowds x perfect waves = pure stoke. Once again, thanks heaps. Stay surfing.
“Thanks Joely, Chad, Ads, and all the lads for another awesome trip. Yewwwwwww!”
Thank you all so much for EVERYTHING !!
Arlo, Tully, Eva, Simon & I had the most amazing time & we will miss you all.
The way you connect with the guests make it feel like we belong to your family.
We will be forever grateful.
