However their getaway turned to tragedy, with authorities finding that Charles suffered a heart attack.
Initially, when the couple was discovered, they thought they died due to an electric fault in the tub but autopsy reports stated that the husband died of a heart attack.
The couple, from Baddeck, Novia Scotia, were both found on Tuesday morning at 10am – just two days before their daughter was due to get married.
A spokesman for the Playaca Palace hotel said: “The room was perfectly fine.
“All the equipment was working perfectly. “What the family mentioned was a heart attack.
“We are treating them as our own family. All the group is very calm, in the best way they can be.”
