A group of us (expats working in Singapore and KL) did a long weekend getaway to Alang Rawa. For those of you who have never been to Rawa or have yet to do your research note that this is a private island with 2 (maybe 3) resorts in the entire island. Bookings have to be done directly with them (which... More

Make sure you book way ahead of time to secure your dates. Expect a vacation of solely the sun, the sand and the sea. No kidding. No tv, wi-fi or air-con for this resort on your own private island (somewhat), and we went by just fine. Take a hike up to the hilltop. The view... you'll thank yourself for it... More

Honestly a bit reluctant to write much about this haven. Why? Coz I want to keep it a secret and enjoy it all to myself. Yes, that's how lovely this island is. Not so much the resort. Honestly, it's been over 5 years I've not been there. So I cant give feedback on the resort. Hopefully they have changed management... More

We just returned from a 2 night stay with friends. As always a beautiful place to stay and relax and we loved every minute of it. We noted though that the coral is in much worse state than it was during our last visit just 6 months ago. There is no information at all how visitors should behave to protect... More

Tiny island. Remote location. Small chalet with no Aircon. Eco friendly with no tap water but filtered sea water. Don't expect any much sea activities, not any shops or restaurants. Whatever you need, all taken care off by the chalet. Just drop your stuffs , forget about your conveniency in the city, dip into the crystal clear water, nor climb... More

It's merely a 20 minutes boatride ride Mersing Jetty. 3D2N of total carefree life. I opted for the Jungle Side rooms. On arrival we were greeted by Sheena and Daisy the beagle.

What an island. Awesome.. All the complaints here? Can't you read in advance? I don't need Air con and hot water on a beautiful island. Get yourself a girl/boyfriend and enjoy your life instead of complaining.. friendly staff, Good food, good music, bit overpriced island drinks, but best view and relaxing beach during workdays. All others stay in air-conditioning Singapore.

Alang's is a small charming resort for a relaxing holiday. It is a great place to spend your day lying on hammock, enjoying the sea breeze with a superb scenery of turquoise sea and white sandy beach. If you can't bear the heat, this is not a place for you as there is no air conditioner available. You can check... More
