Many foreigners enjoying the simple lifestyle A-hut type of living. The white sandy beach and the pristine water will definitely bring you back for another visit. The other resort has good food in a natural wooden hut dinning area.

The best thing about this resort is not the resort itself but the beach and the food. The most gorgeous little island, shortest pristine beach with the bluest of blue waters. It's paradise! You will not want to leave. The beach is the main reason you're coming here - it's phenomenonal!

The resort offers basic accommodation, no aircon but clean and comfortable beds to lay your head. One of the other thing we love is the food. Typically, we all are suspicious of full-board type of accommodation because of the quality of food you get. Here, they serve quality and delicious dishes, plenty of choices and ample portion fit for the hungry! You never have to scrape the bottom of the pan - there is always enough food for everyone!

Staff is accommodating and professional.

The not so good:
WiFi is spotty so it's a chance to unplug. You've been warned. Quality of water (for bathing) is salty. Hard to get fresh, in my opinion.

This is already my 3rd time and will not be the last time. Great value for money for that little piece of paradise! Highly recommended!

Pro tip: try to get the A frame houses, better quality accommodation and offers privacy. And you have that little balcony too!

We'd read really great reviews and a few nightmare reviews about going to Rawa island, but we went with friends who had visited previously and loved it. We went and now we love it!

We live in Singapore so it's an easy two hour drive to Mersing and a twenty minute speedboat ride to Rawa. Really easy to get to for a long weekend or a short break.

Alang was the perfect spot for our family. It's very relaxed, no pressure or beach vendors, really nice meals that are included in your stay, and a very accommodating staff. We asked if they could do a kids disco one night and they happily put on great music and kids games for 45 minutes!

The rooms are nice, but heads up; there's no AC, just fans, and showers are not heated. None of that bothered us as the real draw is the clear warm water, snorkelling, Kayaking, and lounging on the beach. The kids had a blast jumping off the pier, going on the water slides and having the freedom to just run wild. Meanwhile the parents can sit back in a hammock or in the shade having a cold drink and relaxing as much as your kids let you!

For our family fun, the nice staff and location, the ease to get here, and the amazing beach, we will definitely be back.

We have been told that weekends and public holidays bring a much younger party crowd to the island, just FYI.

Alang's Rawa is one of those places that gets you hooked. Once you've been there, you will surely go back. This is my third time and I am sure it will not be the last. The food is great, the people are awesome, the island looks like paradise, and when you are there, forget about the shoes or even slippers, barefoot is fine!
Thank you to all at Rawa for yet another wonderful time.

I prefer Alang than the other resorts because of it's blue colour painting and the design of the places are closes to beaches for us to have an enjoyable and relaxing trip at the clear blue sea side. As the island only have 2 resorts and no island hopping services provided, best to bring some playing cards along or you can just simply lazing at the beach side. We also bought lots of snacks and drinks there before entering the island as the drinks are expensive. Nonetheless, this island is definitely worth a visit.
