Pulau Rawa

Psst - did you know there's paradise on earth? Yup! And it's called 'RAWA'. A dream of an island 16km off the coast of Mersing. Stretches of white sugary sand, secluded beaches, clear green water and swaying palm fronds offering cooling shades.

A special place that beckons you to be yourself. As the waves carry away your troubles, the breeze smoothens those perpetual frown lines and the sun just warms up every corner of your heart. Truly, an unspoilt oasis of peace and tranquility. No TV, no phone lines, no cars, no crowds and no reason to run after time.

The island was discovered by Tunku Mohammed Archibald as a perfect fishing haven. In 1971, he built Rawa Island Resort also known as Rawa Safaris. The resort houses 63 units of chalets and bungalows. Rents vary from RM110 for a beach hut during low season to around RM400 for a family suite during peak. There is a restaurant and a pub with decent food and prices and tends to get packed during long weekends as it can cater big groups.

But the best kept secret of Rawa resides in the cluster of chalets tucked quietly away in the other corner of the island. 'Le Club Rawa', as the resort is called, is a gem chanced upon by the lucky few . An enchanting place with just 6 rooms, a private beach and an all-purpose 'club house'.

This little haven basically celebrates the most simple pleasures in life - excellent food, great company and nature's beauty.

It snuggles against a protective hill of green foliage and faces a natural lagoon of corals teaming with colourful fishes and giant clams. You're actually spoilt with the convenience of snorkelling right in front of your doorstep!

For the more adventurous, you can check out the caves or take a 15 min trek up the hill that overlooks the other side of the island. A pretty interesting view which usually promises a beautiful sunrise(for you freaks who has nothing better to do at the crack of dawn!).

But honestly, 'Le Club Rawa' is one of the 'coolest' place to just 'hang loose' and 'chill out'. The island's innate qualities simply entices you to rest and relax. And if you dare, go one step further and let yourself be possessed by the island call - and you'll be whisked away on a personal journey of self-discovery. The perfect place to get re-acquainted with that balanced centre within yourself that will leave you reinvigorated and re-energised to face the daily rigours of city life.

P.S. Regretably we no longer book with Le Club Rawa
