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

I went to this place for a weekend and I was amazed with the good food, yes!!! Beach was okay, rooms were nice, staff were cordial, lot of time to relax and enjoy, prices are very high I will recommend to book full package including all meals if you are staying here, else it can be more expensive, quite romantic...

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

This is my first review despite staying there a couple times with my hubby and 2 kids.. All those times were wonderful~ This is especially awesome holiday for families, with young kids.. This time round, I brought my parents along.. My dad has trouble walking as he suffered a stroke a while back and was a lil anxious about boarding... More

We had a great 3 night stay at Rawa island resort, We are a family of two adults and two children age 3.5 & 5, it took us 3 hours to drive there and a 30 mins boat ride which is a private boat of the resorts so its just the guests for the island and no one else. (if... More

The resort is very clean and well-kept unlike most resorts in Malaysia I have visited. I need not take a boat ride to snorkel in clear water. You will be rewarded with a fabulous view if you hike up the hill. Hassle free 30minute boat ride from Mersing to the Island. A bit pricy compared to smaller resorts in Tioman.... More

We drove up from SIngapore early Saturday morning and berthed at the hotel's pier just after 09.00. When we got to reception we were informed that we had two beds in our room despite confirming over the phone that the room could sleep two adults and two children and having the same on our confirmation. They said that they could... More

Discovered this little paradise more than 8-9 years ago. Was a wondeful spot not far away from Sinagpore and affordable. Things unfortunately have changed with prices going up a lot each year... It is still a wonderful breakaway but don't expect anymore to be alone.. Avoid weeked ends and holiday season to be in peace...

Ok. So it's pointless trying to keep it secret anymore. I have been a regular on my returns to Malaysia at Rawa since 1996. We have been here year after year. Friends have enjoyed their honeymoons here. I learned how to snorkel amongst teams of fish here! Yes, gone are the days of Tunku Alang and his wonderful cooking but... More
