Does anybody have a good suggestion for a relaxing 4-7 day holiday for a couple, leaving from YYC, ideally direct flight.

We thought about an all-inclusive, and thats an option, but looking for an option with better food, nicer rooms and maybe some sort of wellness content.

Right now best option is wickaninnish in Tofino, but that drive can be terrible and that option may be sub optimal. Weve also considered NYC, Sedona, San Fran, Paris, Maui, San Diego.

So key aspects are:
- very nice hotel
- relaxing environment (we like to walk, but we dont want a ton of #### to go see)
- good food

Nice to haves
- direct flight (shorter the better)
- natural environment - either mountains or sea
- wellness options like workouts, yoga etc.
- not insanely expensive ($500/night for hotel is probably what were looking at)

Any suggestions (even if something like mexico that is really great) would be welcome.

Highly recommend San Diego - probably the best weather on your list (aside from Maui), wonderful beaches and lost of great walking.

Stay north side (Pacific Beach) - we enjoyed Pacific Terrace Hotel well enough (room wasn't particularly memorable, but location superb), pretty sure we found a good deal on hotels.ca.

La Jolla [LA HOY-A] is a lovely bike ride, or uber to Torrey Pines (natural area and/or the golf course if you are so inclined). You could also consider staying in La Jolla, but you'd probably get better value in Pac Beach and go up for dinner once or twice.

We haven't really explored much of downtown/gaslamp quarter, but certainly worth a visit, or consider it as your base.

Lots of other great trails and hiking nearby + Balboa Park + the zoo.
