  • Please make sure that your boat transfer to the island uses the jetty at KUALA BESUT, and not any other illegal boat jetty. To avoid inconvenience, please arrange the boat transfer and, if required, the land transfer, directly with the resort. The resort management will ensure a smooth, convenient and hassle-free transfer to and from the resort.
