Climate in Thailand
Thailand's climate is tropical and high in both temperature and humidity. Most people find it pleasant. The average temperature is about 30 degrees Celsius, or 86 degrees Fahrenheit.
When it is getting too hot, just enter a air conditioned hotel room or shop for a while and you will "recharge your batteries". A a dip in a pool can also be very refreshing.
Remember to drink a lot of water so you don't become dehydrated. You will experience "summer temperatures" here year round, but the weather in Koh Samui is normally divided into three seasons:
The dry season
The hot season
Monsoon or Rainy season

Differences in Climate
The climate seasons are not exactly the same as in Krabi and Phuket as these destinations are located in/at the Andaman Sea and Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao are located in the Gulf of Thailand. This makes the climate differences rather evident.
