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.

One of the best island in Peninsular Malaysia. We stayed for 4 nights with full board in this resort. You can enjoy slides, peacock around the island, crystal clear water and many many fish around the jetty. The food choices were good and we had no complaint about the quality and taste of it. We booked direct from the hotel and took a boat ride from Mersing Jetty to reach Rawa Island. Will definitely come back!

The good side : Stunning and incredible view! You can go hiking (1 hour tour the whole island) or just follow their island walk trail for amazing sunset stroll! The bad side: - the facilities not well maintained, lot of broken things haven’t fix, ie the rock bar area, snooker table, kids room, boardwalk behind PADI centre etc - The room totally different compared to their photo in the website (their editing skill is different level). We booked for the most expensive bungalow there, but…There is NO ROOM SERVICE (no telephone in the room, u have to call their hp number to reach receptionist). All the basic things is not provided in the room. Ie kettle, coffee/tea/sugar/creamer packets, slipper, laundry beg, refrigerator, tv is NONE. If you need a hot water, u have to walk to the bar (5mins walk). All their food, breakfast/lunch and dinner is tasteless. Limited water supply so do expect water rationing during your stay - Water sport activities - snorkeling,kayaking, paddle boarding and diving (maybe limited due to monsoon season). Ocean wise, no crystal clear water, not much marine life like Redang but we found nemo, stingray, baby shark. Rawa’s highlight is their massive waterslide but it’s only open for 1hour depends on the water tide. - No beach lifeguard.

Beautiful resort for relaxation. Corals just at the beach thriving. Easy snorkelling. Saw 5 black tip sharks swimming around the waterfront bungalow we were staying at No live music or boisterous parties, which is good. It's all full board, and the daily buffet menus were simple but delicious.

We have been to Rawa at least once a year since 2014 (except for 2020 +2021). The team there is extremely friendly, the bungalows are in good conditions and some bathrooms have been overhauled. Water is clear and the coral reef seems to be recovering. The only downside was the quality of the food which was really below average compared to former years. It was either over/under-cooked, flavoured mainly with garlic and options started to repeat themselves after three days. We just assume that the island is missing a real chef.

After reading reviews prior to our arrival,we have a pretty open mind and know what to expect. The service at the check in counter on the mainland was very efficient. We arrived early for our 12 pm boat transfer and was checked in straight away (more time on the island 😊) room was available and was very disappointed with the look. Very old and it in needs of a major make over. It was clean. The beach and what the nature has provided them (the hills, the look out, corals and the wild animals) were amazing. No internet, TV, fridge and water boiler/kettle in the room (in my opinion they should consider this when it’s due to refurbish. It rain 2 days and was left wondering what to do! Don’t get me wrong, if you don’t mind snorkelling or walking in the rain, you may find this is ok. There is a TV at the common area near the reception but you have to be ‘considerate’ with those doing their team/zoom meeting etc…. W*******s! As there is an internet access here and the restaurant. The management should invest in upgrading the room to keep repeat customers. We will definitely come back here when the room has been refurbished. Thank you to all staff (from the maintenance, housekeeping and the front of house for making it a lovely stay to compensate the poor room conditions.

To die for beach with A-mazing staffs! 10/10 to both of these categories! As we are not outdoor type of family, my 5yo son is petrified of harmless creatures that co-exist among us in our outdoor part of villa. He was having a really hard time on his first day of arrival. Tom, one of the most attentive hotel staffs heard our story and tried his best to help us overcome our issue. We were really fortunate to be offered another room & that was when our vacation finally started!!!! Thank you, Tom! We really appreciate you going above & beyond for your guests!
