Made entirely of bamboo apart from the thatch roofs, the stilted bungalows are set in a quiet coconut tree grove just back from Ao Kham and within a stone's throw of the pier. The rooms are thoughtfully designed with windows and cracks in the bamboo to allow for maximum airflow, and the partially open-air cold-water bathrooms come with orchids and other potted plants to help you enjoy the bucket-flush toilet. Beds are firm and draped in mosquito nets, with an extra single bed provided in the larger family bungalows. The Coco Lodge also offers a few concrete air-con rooms with softer beds, wall-mounted fans and proper bathrooms. Though decor and furnishings are sparse, the addition of torches is appreciated. Those on a shoestring budget can rough it in a tent perched on a bamboo platform and use the shared cold-water bathroom. Owner Chert is the sort of longhaired, soft-spoken guy who makes the perfect host on an out-of-the-way island like Muk. He stays open all year and can arrange boat trips and jungle treks.
