A place for sun and relaxation
In a nutshell
There's only one restuarant in pulau rawa. They serve buffet most of the time. But when there are lesser guest, especially during the off-peak season, the restuarant will change menu to a-la-carte. Though choices aren't too plenty but generally food is still ok.
Restuarant only operates from morning 08:00 - 10:00 Lunch 12:00 - 14:00 Dinner 19:00 - 2100. Bar closes at 12 midnight.
All meals are inclusive during my stay. Heard that they organise weekend seafood barbeque on Saturday night. Did not have a chance to try coz i normally visit on weekdays as i hate crowded and packed resorts.
Favorite Dish: Tried their sambal chilli crabs and sweet sour prawns during dinner buffet. Though spicy but taste fantastic.

Address: Pulau Rawa
The boat ride from Mersing to Rawa island costs between RM 40-RM60 by speedboat (I dont know is there is any other boat cos i always take the speedboat).
As there is only one resort on the island, they will arrange for the boat so make sure it's included in your cost of accom. It may be a separate cost.
Alternatively you can contact free-roaming transport agents like Peter Eng of Genting Ria Beach Chalets at Tioman, who can arrange for a boat to take you to any island you wish. But do call him ahead of time to enable arrangement.

After reaching the top of the hill, my wife actually sat on a grown centipede! It seems that we are intruding into its privacy. So the next time u sit on anything, check first. Luckily she was wearing thick jeans material or she may have a bigger butt!

We were told that we were not allowed to bring food into the island as food would be sold at the hotel restaurant. However, many others brought food and we soon found out the reason why! For our dinner on Sat, we were not allowed to order a la carte but were forced to pay exhobitant prices for a "BBQ buffet"

A walk up the hill (it's the only one) on the island's tip is rewarding. The views are stunning but do bring your water bottle with you eventhough it's less than 45 min walk.
