Gem allows the privacy of being in a private island. This could be further enhance by having a more up to date setting of a restaurant. Staffs are friendly and warmth.

Good for short stay
A quiet and small island which suitable for people who likes some peaceful time. Compared to the Pulau Kapas nearby which is more crowded, this small island allowed us to enjoy our time without much disturbance. Price of food is not cheap for ala carte meal set. We ordered some dishes with rice to share among family members. Taste is ok though not very fantastic. It would be better if the price of accommodation is cheaper since no other facilities around for longer stay.

Nice place, friendly and competent staff.
Very nice place, but in need of maintenance. The place is still comfortable but would be a lot nicer with more maintenance. The staff is super and the chef at the restaurant awesome! I will return considering the price range per night around 70-80 euros which is what we paid.

Ok Only
- Room was very dusty and when you step in, you can feel the dust on your feet. - Room also has a certain dated smell. - Island surrounding is great, peaceful and private caving sites you can hangout at. - Nothing unique about the Island and as no Turtle seen at conservation pit. - Dinner at the restaurant is great! The food is 5/5.

The highlight was watching colourful tropical fish at high tide from our balcony. Food at the restaurant was expensive for Malaysian standard but compensated by prompt service, quality and portions. Could do with another waiter/ress. It is unusual to see all staff are male.We wonder why. The beach is clean and water crystal clear. Could do with more information about what beach amenities are complimentary. Bookings at the resort was minimum when we were there so cannot comment on what it will be like when busy. We experienced solitude and absolute relaxing time regardless.Would certainly return again.
