Langkawi v Phuket v Koh Samui

Cannot decide which to choose. we are looking for a lush scenic hideaway. Not too touristy with noisey clubs on every corner. Also which place is better value? Like to spend time viewing the sights and not 7 days lying on a beach.

Anyone been to either 2 or all three ?

Ive been to all 3. Phuket and Koh Samui are both VERY touristy and very commercialised and expensive (esp phuket). If you want lush scenic hideaway I think its better to go to Langkawi and stay at some boutique hotel or at one of those faraway resorts (andaman, datai, etc). While Im sure you can find a place on Phuket or Koh Samui where its less touristy but I wouldnt head there if its 'a lush hideaway' youre looking for :)
