Well the inhabited islands of Ang Thong Marine park are Samui, Phangan and Tao.
I have only ever stayed on Samui the last being 2006 and the first 95 and there has been a hell of a change as I have visited over the years - first time it was 150 THB on Chaweng beach and last time 4000 THB a night.
Depends on time of year as well - August etc you have the monsoons on the Andaman side with Phi Phi and weather can be bad in Samui later in the year.
What about the larger Koh Chang on the eastern side of the gulf if it has to be Thailand or as the other poster pointed out are you up for Vietnam etc as you have already been to Thailand?

Depends on what you want but I do not think Thailand has priced itself out of the market - still cheap as chips in many places.
