Back in early year of 2014, its was a great adventure of me and my friends to explore the great island and ocean by sitting there in just 1 night. We love all about our rawa's island. A great day & night to spend!

Can you imagine shower... More

Very nice gateway for a weekend from Singapore (with a bumpy boat ride at the end) The individual cabins (only 2 of them) are much better, make sure you book those. Possibility to bring your own alcohol for a small corkage fee. Overall, a simple resort, but very nice.

Very friendly staffs. Nice buffet breakfast, lunch & dinner. White soft sandy beach. A excellent resort for a short get away during the weekday. Great for family get together. A relaxing and carefree place.

2nd visit this time! Stayed here for a night at the beach front villa. The beach is not flawlessly wide spread. Again, no single litter on the beach and in the sea. Drawbacks: 1) ants crawling everywhere, never leave your baggage opened in the room, as ants might crawl into it soon enough. 2) Drinking water does not taste nice... More

First, the good points. Beautiful white and soft beach, food is decent and the ground staff at the jetty area was helpful. Now, the bad. There is only 1 boat ride out to the island, which is at 12pm. If you missed it, chartering a private boat is your only option (myr500 per trip per direction). If you are planning... More

Our second time in that resort and we will definitely return. Plenty of things todo for small kids. Service team is very friendly and for someone who loves snorkeling, diving (up to 10m @ house reef) or Kajak trips around a small island, you will not find anything comparable in the vicinity of Singapore. Its not cheap, but worth the... More

We stayed here for three nights in April 2015. Two families (including 4 children under the age of 10). Everyone had a great time and we would definitely return. Best points; stunning beach, crystal clear water, slides into the sea (for the children), friendly staff, decent (if not inspirational) food and simple laid back living. Don't expect luxury accommodation but... More

It has been a while since I visited, but I am planning a second visit and wanted to write a quick review. A friend and I went alone with our toddlers and it was awesome. We had such a great time just spending the day on the beach and it will remain one of my fondest memories during my time... More

I'd heard and read various things about Rawa island and the two resorts (Alang's Rawa an Rawa Island Resort), and ended up staying at Rawa Island Resort. WHY RAWA? It's got a 1km long beach, but the water here is the cleanest I've seen in Southeast Asia, and there's even a little coral reef a few minutes swim from the... More
