We stayed 4 days & 3 nights at this resort and had 3 dives there. We arrived from Singapore to Mersing via bus and duration from Mersing to Pulau Rawa is just 30 mins away by boat which was included in the package we had. Check in was smooth as breeze and staffs were helpful and friendly. -Diving: The diving...

Nice resort but loud base driven disco music until midnight kept us awake. I think it is a mistake to have this on a family resort. Chalets are very close to disco. They didn't turn it down when told it was a problem.

We have been to Batu Batu and Nikoi a few times each so we thought we would try Rawa since it is 2/3 the price and a similar distance away. We actually preferred it for a few reasons, even if the price was the same. The real bonus was dealing with kids. Nikoi has the edge here over Batu, but...

Beautiful small and calm island with a lot of activities. Everything perfect organised and even the buffet is amazing! Worth of the time to spend there and relax a weekend from Singapore. Easy to reach by bus and ferry.

I checked in at Rawa Island Resort with my good friend last Mar 11, 2017. It was a very enjoyable stay. The beach has clear blue waters. The weather was good, we were able to kayak and snorkel. The snorkeling trip was worth it as there are nice corals and fishes to see. Lastly, the quality of the food was...

I stay with my family for 3D2N over the weekend. Overall is very good. Great for just lay back to relax, enjoy the sun and sand. First day checked in to the room that near to the renovation site, was too noisy and we complained to the reception. Tom, the manager was very helpful and responsive. Thumb up for Tom.

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...

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
