After reading most of the reviews, I decided to go there for the weekend with my family! Upon arrival, the most distinguished spiral water slide was old & badly designed! It ripped off my daughter's swimwear & leaving her with some abrasions & my son bumped his forehead when sliding down. The chalet in the aircon in the master bed... More

Very beautiful and peaceful island. We spent three nights with family. Kids enjoyed sliding to the ocean and building castels on white sand!. The rooms are little houses. Very cosy although no TV or fridge are available in. Food was good. Buffet was changing every day.

An Island resort which is paradise. You arrive at the Island by speed boat and see the landing stage with settee's bar the white sand beach and beautiful little houses which are your rooms, no high rise block here! The covered open air central area is a relaxed drinking and eating area. Its here that you are made very welcome... More

Although the view is beautiful, the beach is rather short. The wave can get quite violent at times. We saw wild cats wondering around cafe area and really did not expect my three sons are infected by the cats' poo and virus has caused them having intense itching. They were diagnosed with the creeping erupting cutaneous larva Migrans. We spent... More

Dear Guest, We are truly very sorry to hear about your experience on Rawa. Unfortunately the cats/dogs belong to the neighbouring establishment on the island. We do not house any domestic animals or pets on our Resort for this very reason. We intend to highlight this immediately to our neighbours. Once again, please accept our sincerest apologies to you and... More

We've been to the island last July. The beauty of the beach, the sea, the Sat BBQ made us decided to return for the 2nd time and probably every year. This visit was during Singapore National long weekend, the resort was full but the beach wasn't overcrowded. Spa facilities newly opened, but we didn't manage to book a slot. The... More

We loved this place. The island was stunning, with spectacular turquoise waters and the finest powdery white sand. You have to see it to believe it. There was loads to do as well, from huge slides leading to shallow clear waters, snorkeling, diving, sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing to beach volleyball, table tennis and badminton. There are kids rooms with... More

I would like to add to all the positive reviews for this resort by applauding the resort for the way they handle people with food allergies. The staff at the resort, particularly Alena (sp?) who was a trainee and Vanessa, really understood which foods my child needed to avoid and were always happy to provide an alternative. Meals were buffet... More

If you live in Singapore - this is an easy long weekend place to visit. 2.5/3.00 hour drive to Mersing by hired vehicle or your own, 20 minute safe boat ride across the waters takes you straight to Rawa Island for fun in the sun. A wide choice of villas/chalets to choose from all comfortable with AC, fans and hot... More

Most people talk about the pristine nature of Rawa Island. This is a review about the service and amenities. We were treated like royalty, from the moment we stepped off the boat until the time the staff waved goodbye. Our room (64) was nothing short of amazing. Room was clean, aircond working well. Shower is hot (Pls bring your own... More

I didn't have any expectations before going to Rawa Island. But upon reaching, I was awestruck. The beach was beautiful, and was welcomed by their staff, offering us drinks when we alight from the boat. My friends and I booked the Beachfront room, and we loved it. However, my one and only gripe is that there's no fridge or phone... More
