Rawa Island, Malaysia
Pulau Rawa or Rawa Island is an island at the east of Johor, Malaysia. ……..
Travel type: Friends (Group of 4)
When: 2017, June 10-12
Flight: Airasia (Kuala Lumpur > Johor, 55 minutes)
This is how we get to Rawa Island:
KL > Johor by Airasia (~1 hours)
Johor airport > Mersing Jetty by Uber (~2 hours)
Mersing Jetty > Rawa Island Resort by speed boat arranged by the resort (~30 minutes)
There are only 2 resorts on the island, Alang’s Rawa and Rawa Island Resort. We opted the latter. For guests’ convenience they offer packages that include meals and 2-way boat transfer. We took Hillside room for 4 people, 2 nights which costs us MYR983 per person.
The Beach & Us
Took Uber from Senai Airport to Rawa Island Resort’s Reservation Office at Mersing Jetty.
The island itself is great. Clear water, clean beach. But the resort needs a better management. The reception seems unfriendly, lack of basic amenities in the room, food was average… I would like to recommend others to come because it is a beautiful island, but with the price we paid, we deserve a better accommodation.
