“Best place on earth. A genuine honour to be apart of what you have created.”
“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
“I would like to convey my appreciation and gratefulness to the way in which your RLZ is run, my son Joel and myself had an amazing 7 days on your island and will definitely be back in 2015 with Kong’s Academy. We would like to personally thank Wal, Sman, Swilly, Julie, Santi ,Adam and all staff for their hospitality and professionalism over our complete stay.
Swilly is very professional and hard working and depicted our trip with amazing photos in and out of the water. There was nothing more we could have asked for or needed and the experience of Sman and Adam in the boats ensured a hassle and injury free adventure for our sons at all times. The food was amazing and the Bintangs icy cold and with water temp of 25 degrees it was truly an island paradise.
You should be very proud of what you have achieved in building such an amazing resort in such a remote location, as well as provide staff with such a constant generous and friendly attitude.”
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!
“No complaints. Excellent staff. Excellent time. Thanks.” – Jack Tomlinson
” 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
“Really loved the experience. You guys simply get it 100% right. The entire stay from arrival to departure was amazing. Definitely the best surf trip of my life.”
“Fantastic” – Toni Duncan
“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.”
“First time was fantastic. Second time even better. Quality waves, quality food, quality company. We will be back in 2015.
Just a short note to thank Wally and the entire staff at RLZ during my recent holiday! You have a first class resort and it is a pleasure to be on the island. The accommodations, food, staff, not to mention the waves is unreal. I will diffidently be back to RLZ!!
“Just a quick note to say we had an absolute blast during our recent stay!!! EVERYONE was fantastic, including Furi, Missy, Gema and Amponi (please excuse any misspellings). Your resort is run so professionally and smoothly, we felt we were into it from the moment we were met in Padang. Wally’s laid back but professional approach reinforced all this and all the staff were kind and attentive.
I would like to make special mention of Andrew (Smanny). He really made the trip for us. Always relaxed, easy going and accommodating but extremely professional and guided us to the right surf spot every time. We could not have been made to feel more welcome on the boat. Great bloke. We will be back (and hopefully we can get Andrew again if he’s around)!
Best wishes and thanks guys. You’ve got a great team and a great resort.
PS. The food guys, the food!! Brilliant.
PPS. Still drooling over Swilly’s surf shots. The man works hard and can make anyone look good!”
“Fantastic. Great surf guides and accommodation and not to mention waves in a pristine area.” – Dennis Wilson
I wanted to thank you for an absolutely awesome trip; I left early as you know so didn’t manage to fill in a questionnaire afterwards but well here is my take! The accommodation excellent; all the blood, sweat and tears that went into those beautiful bungalows was 100% worth it; really felt VIP staying there; mission accomplished; very cool. The food & menu was very nice; whether buffet or table serving; just a really good variety. You recall me saying/believing that happy staff are more important than happy customers and your staff are amazing. So I am being a bit “gushy” now but I am being completely honest and open with you!
“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”
“This is an awesome spot run by surfers for surfers of all ages. Been twice would kill for a third. Of all my trips this place is my favourite. Surfed my brains out ate like a horse and came back 4 kilos lighter & stronger both times. Nothing uncommon about 3 to 4 sessions a day from sunrise to sunset everyday. Highly recommend.”
“Been back to Adelaide a month now and not a day has gone by without reminiscing about our great times at RLZ We just wanted to thank you all again for a great Christmas, was FANTASTIC. We all enjoyed ourselves so much and to have uncrowded waves with friends old and new a real treat.”
What an amazing trip I had and the waves where great. Thanks for the brilliance of your pictures, you really have a great skill and passion for surf, I really admire you for your natural ability to live and love life. you get stoked on a lot of things and I must say your so in tune with mother ocean nature.Thanks again for the great photos, hope we get one in a mag!! Hope we can meet again one day..If those pro girls have a free spot on board let me know. hahaJeremy west (Jezza)
“What a trip!! Thanks to all for an amazing experience. Great venue, great waves & great people. Special thanks to Adam. Legend Guide.”
“Just a note to say thanks for not only an epic surf trip this year but also a magnificent holiday, it is always such an enriching experience to spend two weeks in paradise and share great times with a terrific bunch of people, i am already counting the days until next trip look forward to seeing you all again in 2015 regards ross lowe.”
“Thanks for everything. To the staff, awesome work and the best place to spend our 40th B Day. The food, drinks, accommodation, staff are second to none and the waves were just as good. See you in another 10 years for the 50th.”
“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.”
“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 :-)”
“Great. Would come back next year. All staff very good” – Pierre Langenhoven
“Thanks to the boys for their guidance, Chad, Joely, Ads; and to those – the kitchen / bar – thanks for your exceptional service. Love this place.”
“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.”
“Had a fantastic trip – great waves and a great bit of timeout.”
“Great waves again 2013, 2014. See you in 2015.”
Great Resort and haven’t had service like this in Oz for 20 years. Very accommodating.
“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 holiday I’ve ever experienced. The Resort, the people, the surf, everything was top class. Even Larry was a top dog! I will be venturing back sometime in the future. Cheers.”
“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.”
“Absolute ripper! Especially Misho’s.”
