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.

A place you can have peace of mind. Nice hotel close to the beach, corals, dive sites. Not far to kayak to Bukit Singa for hiking and awesome view

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.
