If cost is not an issue, you can check out Movenpick resort on the island of Phuket, at Karon Beach.
Karon Beach, IMHO, is more family friendly than the more well known Patong beach.
The Movenpick resort itself has a tour desk that can organized day trips out to sea, to view some caves and do a bit of kayaking.
The resort occupies a very large compound and has a back gate that leads right to the beach.
You can arrange for airport pick-up.
For a view of the type of accomdation, just visit their website.
But as I said, this resort is not cheap.
For elephant trekking and jungle trips, Chiang Mai is a nice place to go. You can also do side trips to the villages of Pai and Mae Hong Son.
