Help us decide: Hua Hin or Koh Samui for Aussie couple

Hats off to the Thai for their resilience and great spirit.We enjoyed our first visit to Thailand last year before the tsunamis and are grateful to again be able to visit the country of such gentle brave people.
Just to ask again, we are looking into spending 14-17 days in SEA. We loved Kata Beach and would like to visit other Thailand beach areas (Koh Samui, Hua Hin, or Krabi).Do not want to be rushing place to place. Would like more Thai/less touristy experience, but appreciate the creature comforts of 4/5* accommodation. Also looking into some mtn/jungle time (likely inland from beaches)-4 days max. Main priority is R&R (sailing, swimming, great eats), but making the most of our visit to this wonderful country. Obviously, we could get all the other stuff here in Aussie!
Also considering Bali as alternative (Jimbaran Bay, eastern coast, Ubud etc) or Lankawi--anyone heard/stayed at the Tanjung Sanctuary there?
thanks for your help.

bali is a great escape, but i think you would want to spend a week there....four days is too short for the time it takes to get there...its an easy jump from oz for a trip in itself....

samui as i wrote on your other post is a great place to do things you have mentioned...
