Rawa: For a weekend break
There aren’t many chances to stay on a Sultan’s private island. Rawa is one. Owned by the family of the Sultanate of Johor, Rawa is a small island 16 kilometers off the east coast of Peninsula Malaysia.
Only two resorts hug its white-sand fringed west coast, which is accessible by boat from the mainland port of Mersing (also the departure point for more distant Tioman).
As your choice of accommodation is limited — it can often fill up quick with young Singaporeans looking for a weekend getaway — so book up early.
Where to stay: There are only two places to stay on the island: Rawa Island Resort or the smaller Alang’s Rawa.
Getting there: From Kuala Lumpur, catch a bus or drive to Mersing, from where regular ferries depart. Note that during low season (November to March), ferry frequency can drop sharply.
