Mini-moon ideas for Monterey or Cambria areas or other.

Jump to last reply

We're getting married in San Diego in March. Afterwards we would like to take a 3-4 day mini honeymoon. I was considering flying to SFO, renting a car and driving to the Monterey Bay area. We want a uber-relaxing time, including great food and drinks. I've never stayed at a fancy resort before and have my eye on Bernardus Lodge. The reviews look great and I may be able to splurge for the Luxury Spa Room vs the Premium King-- given the two day, third day free offer. Do you think it's worth the extra splurge to get the private hot tub room? There's only one vague picture of the setup, so it's hard to judge how that room differs from the others. Regardless, I wonder if this is a good deal (even with deal its $400+/nt) or if there is something that would be a more relaxing. I chose the area because I thought it would also be fun to go to the Monterey Aquarium.

Alternatively, I was thinking of renting a cottage in Cambria. This requires flying into San Luis Obispo and renting a car. From there we could visit wineries and just relax. The price tag is similar to that of the King room at Bernadus, but we could probably stay 4 nights, rather than 3. We love cooking, so that would be a benefit, but I love the idea of being taken care of in a hotel, too.

I'm sure whatever we decide it will be wonderful, but I would love some suggestions on where to stay near Monterey or Cambria, if one of these seems like a better plan, or if there is another option that might be great for our mini-honeymoon-- I thought about Mexico, but with flights it quickly exceeded budget (<3,500 and prefer less). Preferences: 3-4 nights with hotel totaling <1200, indulgent, relaxing, beautiful views, not much driving, but willing to fly, somewhat secluded, and access to great food. Thanks for advice!
