          If you book a package/ night with Gem island, the package would already include complimentary boat ride. Check with Gem Island directly, as Gem Island Resort is the only resort on Gem Island.

          It is more reasonable if you order dishes. Some items on the menu are absurdly priced, for example, their roti canai was priced like RM10-RM12.

          This is a small island. No drivable road on the island. Only mode of transport to the island is by boat.
