Thailand - Koh Samui vs Phuket

I am trying to decide on specific areas to visit in Thailand for the honeymoon. We will stay in Bangkok for a few days then to Koh Samui or Phuket. We are unable to decide which area to stay at for the remainder of our trip. Basically we are looking for nice, clean beaches, a wide variety of places to eat, elephant trekking, some cultural sightseeing and cheap massages. Any suggestions?

We ended up choosing Phuket for our honeymoon and absolutely loved it! It is a touristy spot but we were able to hire a cab to drive us around anywhere we wanted to go for the day. We stopped at some beautiful scenic spots, temples and did some activities outstide of the touristy areas. We spent a day taking a speedboat to Maya Island (where The Beach was filmed) and a few other islands. It was absolutely beautiful, amazing and a great experience if you love the beach. Another reason why I love Phuket is they also have an exciting nightlife, Bangla Road in Patong! Tons of eating and drinking spots and entertainment. Both nightlife and beach life all in one trip!
