The island is magic. Very nice beach and also actually very nice view. The hotel infrastructure is not in a good shape and some things like running warm water I would except at this price. Staff is friendly Food is ok and tasty but clearly not very special. So little local dishes but the normal "European Family all you can... More

This could just be the best short getaway destination from Singapore, depending on what you are looking for. It is basically one resort split into two - backpacker and more upmarket. We stayed in the the backpacker dorms which were basic but adequate. The beach is amazing and you can do as little or as much as you want. You... More

This is a pristine beach, unspoiled compared to most other islands. The food is good and staff are friendly and helpful. The only things I wasn't happy about was our hillside room which was tiny and the bathroom which really could use some renovating. Having said that, the room condition only bothered me coz I had my 14 month old... More

I wouldn't say the accomodation was terrible but neither is it fantastic/luxrious. I stayed at room 65 Waterfront Bungalow for 2D1N on 22 March to 23 March 2014. Despite paying approximately SGD300/pax/night, dont expect too much from the resort itself. Its very basic accommodation tho the scenic view. The bed is clean, shower has no hot water, aircon was not... More

After reading some of these reviews I had to respond.... I was on Rawa in September and it was the most amazing tranquil and relaxing place I have ever been ( and I have travelled) I didn't go there for a luxurious room or to have a pesky waiter/waitress annoying me! But the rooms were clean and useable it was... More

We stayed in a Beachfront room with a great view. The bathroom was extremely tired and the plumbing (sink tap and shower) did not work properly. We didn't have a hot shower the whole time we were there and everytime you turned on the tap you got soaked. If I was staying longer, I would have complained but since it... More

I've heard fabulous reports about Rawa Island but this is our first visit in 40+ years in Singapore! I booked a week before CNY thinking no hope of finding accommodation. To my surprise they had a room and the Mersing office arranged everything for us. I had read some rather negative reports on TA about the food, service and the... More

This was an awesome quick trip out of Singapore for a few days with friends. The rooms were clean but in need of updating, the buffet food was pretty average and the staff were not accommodating to additional requirements or late arrivals. However the beach was picture perfect and the Saturday BBQ was really very good.

We had a splendid holiday on Rawa Island Safaris Resort. It's a wonderful place both for friends, couples and families... The unique nature, the ambience and the people who care lovingly and attentivly to their guests. They made our stay extra special! The food was fantastic, the service unobtrusive but very courteous, and the rooms were very nice and clean.... More
