A friend and I stayed here for 3D2N and I am quite impressed with the quality of service provided here. The staff were very friendly and efficient, especially the receptionist named Casey who has assisted us from checking in to the resort to accompanying us to the ferry, giving us lots of tips on how to maximize our stay, and...

Rawa Island Resort is the perfect place for families looking for a quiet and safe beach escape. It is serene, peaceful and because it is the only resort on the island, uncrowded. The villa I stayed in was the largest one - able to accommodate eight people comfortably. It was beautiful and while not lavish, was in excellent condition, clean...

For those with negative comments regarding Rawa resort, do consider that it is sited right in the marine park with thriving corals at the doorstep. We don't get many places within such easy reach from the cities anymore. For water that is shipped from mainland, I say thank you for the effort to provide all creature comfort. We are happy...

Our stay at Rawa Island Resort was made almost perfect by the ambience of the resort with its soft white sand, clear waters and great food, thanks to a chef Kenny and his team. Though I want to give 5 stars for Rawa, however I must say that we were awfully disappointed and annoyed by the receptionist by the name...

Rawa Island is a fantastic place for a short stay beach holiday from Singapore. The beaches are beautiful and the water is clean and clear. The rooms are large, although the bathrooms are tired. Staff were very friendly and the food and drinks great. Don't delay - go now!

Rawa is a beautiful island with powdery soft sand, calm and clear waters and decent snorkelling. A fabulous beach for family holiday fun with a toddler. The waterside accommodation was simple but comfortable and it was relaxing to hear the sounds of the waves whilst we slept. The rooms could do with an upgrade. We noticed that the resort is...

My husband and I were looking forward to this weekend getaway but we were generally disappointed with the whole experience. The beach was perfect, with powdery white sand and clear waters. However that was all there is to it. The room we had was dismal. Our shower head was not working well (only the hot water tap was working) so...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Rawa Island Resort, an idyllic tropical island for guests to unwind from the stress and strain of modern life. Feel the grains of white, sun-baked sand between your toes as you stroll along the beach. Take a dip in the warm waters of the South China Sea. Enjoy the green scenery. Snorkel along the natural coral reef just metres from the shore. Or simply relax as you watch the sun disappear lazily over the orange horizon. Situated within the archipelago of the Sultan Iskandar Marine Park, Rawa Island is accessible by a twenty-minute boat ride from Mersing, Johor. This beachfront resort features 77 rooms, each individually designed to blend in with the natural landscape. Modern furnishings provide guests with the comforts of home. We invite you to take a break from the monotony of daily routine. Experience the island's natural beauty and our Malaysian hospitality. ... more   less
