I am looking for a really nice beach/island in Thailand to stay for 5 nights next year over Christmas. We have stayed on koh Chang before which we loved so would like something similar or even less touristy. I have read so much info that I don't know where to start and would really appreciate some advise from people who have perhaps stayed somewhere really special.

Hi i personally like the andaman side of Thailand. Long beach on Koh Lanta or further afield Koh Lipe are both worth checking out.So many choices though and with 5 nights only somewhere like Lanta appeals as its a cheap air asia flight to Krabi then 2 hr minivan via ferry to island.

If you want less touristy you can stay on one of the National Park islands. The new park bungalows are very nice but facilities are limited -- 1 restaurant, no Internet, etc. You can book on their website.
I loved Ko Tarutao and Ko Adang on the Andaman side in Satun Province. Adang is great because it's a 10 minute long-tail boat ride to Ko Lipe and all its facilities if you're craving pizza for dinner.

So many places are less touristy than Chang. To narrow suggestions could you give us an idea on what you consider special - landscape, gorgeous beaches, top quality accommodation, good diving and/or snorkelling etc?
And perhaps your budget range - there are a few islands I consider a bit special but they don't have midrange or better.
