The Ultimate Guide to Your Weekend Staycation


We know you work hard. After a long week, it’s time to slow down, take a breath, and relax. You deserve it. Switch up your active routine this weekend and treat yourself to a refreshing staycation in your TAVA Waters apartment.

Sleep In … Or Don’t

An essential first step to your staycation is getting the perfect amount of rest time. No one wants to start their relaxing staycation with the annoying buzzing of an alarm. Try turning off your morning wake-up call and let your body wake up naturally. There’s a science behind it, too. When you fall asleep, your body cycles through six different phases. The phases begin with light sleep and grow deeper and deeper until you hit Rapid Eye Movement, better known as REM sleep. So let the REM cycle happen and ditch the alarm! You’re on staycation, remember?

Brunch It Up

So you made it through all six sleep cycles, and now you’re hungry. Grab the ingredients you picked up earlier this week and get to cooking – it’s 2019, who doesn’t love brunch? Feeling sweet? We love this cinnamon raisin bread pudding recipe. Top it off with some fresh seasonal berries and whipped cream, and you’ve got yourself a 5-star meal. Prefer the more savory side of things? This Ratatouille Toast with Egg is the perfect blend of spice, salt, and veggies to get your day started on the right foot. If you’re feeling social, set up a Bloody Mary or mimosa bar on your patio or balcony and invite a friend over to share!


Now that you’ve had a good night’s sleep and made yourself a restaurant-quality brunch, it’s time for the pampering to begin. The good news? Your relaxing oasis is only a few steps away. When you live at TAVA Waters, you don’t have to go far to get to the next leg of your day. Our onsite spa is the perfect place to continue your staycation flow. Loosen up and take advantage of our massage services, just make sure you give us a call in advance. If you really want to get your blood pumping, use the yoga room for some gentle flow yoga before or after your massage.

Order Take Out

Don’t feel like cooking a bunch on your staycation? No problem. Postmates, Uber Eats, and other meal delivery services will bring your favorite Denver cuisine right to your TAVA Waters door. If that’s not your jam, head over to our onsite restaurant, The Cairn, to pick up some Baja Fish Tacos and a cocktail. Soak in the views of the lake and the Rocky Mountains out on the patio.

Catch a Flick

At the end of the day, you have two options – build a fort and watch your favorite rom-com from the comfort of your own apartment, or grab a few friends and some popcorn and use our community movie theater to watch the latest comedy. Who said your staycation has to be expensive?
