In this paper, we are going to obtain the soliton solution of the generalized Rosenau-Kawahara-RLW equation that describes the dynamics of shallow water waves in oceans and rivers. We confirm that our new algorithm is energy-reserved and unconditionally stable. In order to determine the performance of our numerical algorithm, we have computed the error norms $L_{2}$ and $L_{\infty }$. Convergence of full discrete scheme is firstly studied. Numerical experiments are implemented to validate the energy conservation and effectiveness for longtime simulation. The obtained numerical results have been compared with a study in the literature for similar parameters. This comparison clearly shows that our results are much better than the other results.
