With 30 bungalows peppered among trees strung with hammocks and bearing coconut, cashew, papaya and all sorts of flowers, Coco Lodge is hands-down the most atmospheric place to stay on Ko Muk.

Fan-cooled woven bamboo bungalows are simple but intelligently designed with multiple windows and covered gaps in the vaulted thatch ceilings to allow for maximum airflow. Mattresses placed on platforms are very comfortable, and mosquito nets can be slid back against the wall, like curtains, to keep them out of the way when not in use.

Purple hammocks are the best.

Other touches include doorstep waterspouts, light bulbs placed in old-style lanterns, bamboo tables and plenty of places to hang wet clothes. Accessed by log steps that are more like small ladders, the partially open-air bathrooms come with sand-and-stone floors, cold-water showers, flush toilets and even some orchids.

Family bungalows are larger and have extra single beds, including some on bunk frames. You’ll also find three basic concrete air-con bungalows set behind the beachfront restaurant, which serves decent Thai fare. Tents are no longer available at Coco—head over to Garden Beach Resort for one of those.

Woven walls, cool vibe.

Bungalows are spread fairly far apart throughout the relaxing property, where sweet beach dogs nap beneath travellers who hang in hammocks strung among the trees. Kind older Thai women run the resort alongside owner Chet. He’s quiet and isn’t being rude if he doesn’t talk much; hang around for a while and you’ll see that he’s a sweet guy. They offer free WiFi, a book exchange, bicycle rental and boat trips.

We like the location just west of the pier and a short stroll from several restaurants in the village, even if the better Sivalai Beach is 15 minutes away on foot.

Simple but spiffy bathrooms.

If arriving by local ferry from Trang, you can easily walk to Coco from the pier—turn right and it will be on the left just past the beachside village. Coco is popular so make a reservation if you want to be sure to get a room from December to March.
