what would you recommend out of these two options in terms of ease of moving around, food, safety and resort quality for me to travel with my wife and one year old baby for a one week holiday? any comments would be appreciated

We just took our 1 year old to Khao Lak, North of Phuket.

However she got sick, likely due to the water or food standards. We had to get some over the counter antibiotics.

In retrospect, for a one year old, I would keep it as Westernised as possible, maybe Fiji is better for food/water safety, unsure.

Khao Lak is a good option.

Id go to Koh Samui, clean, good food and comfortable hotels. Iv been many times with our then 6 month old and now 4 year old and keep going back. Novotel Samui is my top pick.

neither.based on past experience and this was quite a long time ago for me.if one has a baby that young you can still have your asian holiday but stick to singapore or hong kong.
