The west coast has much better weather at that time of year so I would skip Samui/Tao as you may get a lot of rain and rough seas there.
It is absolute peak time for travel all over Thailand so if it is this year you will need to get your accommodation booked ASAP, many popular places will have been booked out months ago.
