Koh Lanta is pretty amazing, also Koh Chang and Koh Tao.
Which and what did you like of the beaches you have already been to and what are you looking for in terms of facilies etc?

"without too much sleeze"..ah well that's Pattaya out.
You're coming at the right time of the year as it has dropped a few degrees, makes the evenings really pleasant.
I agree with Visit Thailand, you could check out Koh Chang - quite nice but very quiet also it's about a 4 to 5 hour drive from Bangkok.
If you haven't already you could take a trip 'up north' to Chiang Mai as it sounds like you've covered the beaches already.

I want to be near a city for when we get bored of the beach and for day trips. I have been up north and am really looking just to veg out.
Previous beaches on samui were lamai, chaweng
Phangan, Had Thian and bottle beach
koh Samet cannot remember.

If you need a town close by such as there is on Samui etc. Perhaps you could think of Krabi? Krabi has its own airport now, and some of the best beaches in Thailand. Plus you could take a couple of days from there and go to Koh Lanta by speed boat.
Samui is always popular but if you were to head back perhaps try Choengmon beach which is not too far from Chaweng and is much quieter.
There is always Phuket as well.
