Need a camera for holiday

I'm looking at buying a camera for an upcoming holiday to Thailand. Previously I was thinking that I would just get some sort of point and shoot like the Canon S110. However I've been thinking about how I would use the camera, and for the most part when I want something compact I just end up using my Iphone to save me carrying round a camera as well.
I'm not an experienced photographer and don't need anything with excessive functionality which I wouldn't know how to use - basically something that takes nice photos, maybe with a decent zoom for scenery. I do play a lot of sport, especially water based sport, and the iphone takes terrible action photos in the water (understandably because the camera is a secondary function!). So something that has some capacity for capturing movement with zoom without compromising image quality too much would be good.
Would be interested in hearing suggestions about camera types / brands / models. Haven't really set a price range because I don't want something crappy, but remembering I'm a novice and don't need complex functionality.
