A hidden gem of Johor as the island is simply beautiful with the clear blue water and white clean sand right at your door step been there a few times to as it's a good escape from the city life and it isn't too far from KL a quick flight and a short 30mins boat ride away.

We visited Rawa during the monsoon season late January 2015, so when we tried to book the staff told us they would pencil in our booking then confirm 48 hours before if the weather/sea conditions would be good enough to make the stay pleasant - so that was a good start! The resort stafff also put us in touch with... More

Off season trip at very good rates. The water was still clean with a bit of rain late afternoon. So many fish straight off the beach great for kids to see. Staff are very friendly and laid back. Food portions where huge and very nice. Loads of seafood. Drink price reasonable for a resort. Overall had a great 4 days... More

We paid for 6pax but only 5 went. After we reached the lovely island, we requested for a change in rooms arrangement. Carlos was on duty that day and he promptly asked us to go have our lunch first while he made the necessary arrangement.. In the midst of our lunch, he came and let us know that he had... More

If u need a getaway doing nothing, just relaxing on relatively clean beaches with lotsa wind n 'pepper-fine' sand, look no further! Sad there ain't a food column cos it is 5-stars!!! Excellent work by the super-friendly chef and his team!

One of the best beach I have ever been. It has no rubbish on the beach as most of the public beach does in Malaysia. The ride to island is not that far from mainland with speedboat. It has been a very enjoyable stay with family. Surely will go back again! although the room is relatively well maintained if compared... More

Keep your expectations low! The beach and sea are amazing (even better on the left side). Everything else it's ok but not enough to reach the amount of money you pay. Clean and big rooms but very basic and oldish. Food ok but if you stay there too long you will end up eating always the same things. What's disappointing... More

This hotel is quite good compared to the other hotel in this island. Still, you need to keep your expectations low in order to enjoy your stay. Rooms are good and spacious (at least the beachfront we stayed in). Bathroom is bad - no fresh water, no hot water, no decent amenities. Food is good, not great. Drinks not included... More
