More 3.5 star than 4, Rawa Island Safaris Resort was all that we expected and more. A 2hr drive from Singapore with no flight to catch (and yes the Woodlands checkpoint was seamless, wonders never cease)! The check-in and ferry from Mersing was a breeze. Accomodation was clean, with the beachfront chelet's providing great views + ample space if young kids are asleep to read, enjoy a drink, etc. Great for kids (ages 3.5 & 1.5) with soft sand to play in and a relatively protected beach. Food was good with a decent buffet selection. Kayaking was superb (3km circular around the island), snorkelling good (the further out and away from the main beach the better). No diving this time around so cannot speak for this. Fishing off the jetty kept my boy enterained no end. 4 days is about enough however (per review title). Will definitely return on a recurring basis.

First time here in July, my girlfriend and i fell in love with this beautiful island and the resort. Facilities were good and the buffet spread was great! The pasta were nice and we had that for every meal. BBQ dinner was awesome! The activities was fun too, kayak, snorkelling with many fishes and the water slides. To me The price paid was worth it.

There was this well endowed malay waitress in her 30s, who showed atitude towards me and my girlfriend. It was during the BBQ dinner on saturday and we wanted to sit in a brightly lighted table and she said " Cannot, this is for large groups, we have 140 guest today!". Then we chosen another table she said that again. The tables had no reservation sign on it. Absolutely not courteous and polite, her facial expression was stern and fierce. However when she faces the westerners, she would bring on a smile and make small talks with them. OUTRAGEOUS!
After this incident there was more to come, she came to our table and without asking if we want our plates to be cleared, she just took them away, clearing the utensils loudly, trying to show some attitude towards us. She even uttered this sentence to my girlfriend who understands Malay," You Malaysians don't try to show action here". Absolutely racist attitude! She is just looking down on her own people. Every waiter and waitress were polite and courteous to us except her.

So to all Asian travellers, trust me you will feel such treatment from this lady. So Beware!

Stayed there twice within the last 10 years.

What's not so great: the price and for the average standard rooms you r paying for, perhaps could be better.

Wonderful features: snorkeling on the beach cos the water is pretty clear and lotsa fish, corals, giant clams etc. Food is very good and the sand is soft n white. Just 30 mins or so from mainland.

This island have been by far my best experience . Beautiful waters, d only setback is dead corals or it will be a much more beautiful earth's work of art.

The rooms are not as fabulous as u will expect. i have a room with a great musky smell but there are rooms dat looked new and good, but heads up! no tv. There is a lounge area where u can watch tv for free and read magazines they have provided. There are many tings u can do, kayaking, and non motoriZed watersports. I used my days snorkelling and just lay down on d sand. The waterslide may seemed decieving, it will give u a good aderaline rush ! The fishes by d shore line are pretty and u can just bring goggles and be in d waters and feed d pretty fishes.

The food are good, served in buffet style. :) only there are a couple of staffs der who i shall say improve their customer
Svc. Quite rude, seemed neglectful of our request and it kind of spoil our day . :(

Over all its a beautiful MUST visit stay. 45 mins from mersing jetty and der u have. A GEM.

Gorgeous, all-inclusive island. Great to relax. Good snorkelling, scuba diving, kayaking, fishing, etc. Good food. Good Saturday night BBQ (grilled fish, squid, mutton, satay, etc. Beautiful beach. Just a fun place. 2 hour drive from Singapore (The Woodlands to Mersing). 20 minute fast boat ride. Easy vacation.

Room Tip: Rawa has small rooms, family, great houses by the water, etc. Check their website.
