Add a Point to the Map

Alang's Rawa is the cheaper alternative to Rawa Safaris Resort where packages start from 400RM per person if you have 6 - 10 people going.

The package consists of ferry transfer from Mersing, two night's accommodation and all meals. For two people per A-frame chalet, the package costs 550RM per person for the weekend (and not 650RM as listed on their website). The price per person decreases slightly when the room is shared with additional people. Weekday packages cost less.

Rooms are in the form of chalets on the beach and are rather big. There is no air-conditioning and water for showering is cold. Floors are generally kept clean but when living on the beach, sand on the floorboards can never really be completely cleared. It is not a major problem though.

Mealtimes here at Alang's Rawa are 8 - 11am for breakfast, 1 - 3pm for lunch, 8 - 10pm for dinner. There is a special meal time called "Snack" that's from 4 - 6pm, for the peckish.

Alang's Rawa does not provide keys to unlock your room door. You can lock the door from the inside for the night, but when you are on the beach, you must trust that your neighbors are as honest as the staff and yourself.

Alang's Rawa caters to young, western expatriates living in Singapore. You won't find many families in the resort (go to the quiet Rawa Safaris instead), and on weekend nights, the loudspeakers blast dance music until 3am in the morning. Food is great for that audience, with limited but tasty choices, including grilled fish, fresh salad and potatoes. Great if you've had enough of rice and noodles!

On our last visit, there were short but frequent power outages in the evening, and no fresh water on one night. We have also been bitten by bed bugs quite intensively.
