Our Verdict

The Saatva offers really good value if you’d like a bit more luxury in your life but don’t have the five-star budget to spend. Suitable for all types of sleeper, this mattress comes with a 120 night home trial and has the added bonus of white glove delivery.

For

  • Customizable firmness levels
  • Good motion isolation
  • A durable dual steel coil support system
  • Luxury at affordable prices

Against

  • It doesn’t come in a box
  • It’s heavy

We’ve updated our Saatva mattress review for 2020, and we’re impressed by what we found. Saatva is a luxury innerspring mattress that comes in three firmness levels and a choice of two heights. Unlike other online mattress companies, Saatva doesn’t come in a box, instead offering customers white glove delivery directly to the room of their choice. This also means that there’s no waiting for the mattress to expand so it can be used straight away.

This mattress is chiropractor approved and made with lumbar support with a euro top cushion for lower back and joint pain relief, putting it among the best mattress options right now. It’s also worth noting that another benefit of this mattress is that the company is committed to using eco-friendly materials. All the foams used in Saatva beds are CertiPUR-US certified, so they meet rigorous industry standards for health and safety, and is considered the best cooling mattress for hot sleepers.

The Saatva Classic can usually be found among the best Saatva mattress discounts too, which could lead to a decent saving on the mattress or any other in the Saatva range.

Saatva mattress review: Pricing and value

The Saatva ranges between $699 and $1599 and whilst pricey they don’t charge any extra for the customization, so if you’d prefer a 14.5” over an 11” for example you don’t have to miss out because of a higher price point. It’s also worth bearing in mind that you’re getting a more traditional mattress than the regular internet offerings; this mattress is delivered direct to your room of choice and can be used straight away. 

Saatva doesn’t offer discounts as the company believes that its prices are the lowest it can offer for the level of luxury provided. So what you see is what you get. Purple Mattress and Helix Mattress models are a little cheaper, and they come in a box.

The RRP of the Saatva mattress ranges from $699 for a twin to $1599 for a Cal King. Pricing is as follows: Twin $699 | Twin XL $799 | Full $1049 | Queen $1199 | King $1599 | Cal King $1599

  • Designed for back health
  • Multiple firmness options
  • Good motion isolation

The Saatva was designed for customers who experience back and joint pain. The luxurious euro pillow top provides contouring support to help cushion the back, hips and shoulders whilst the lumbar zone support technology helps with optimal spinal alignment. They also have the seal of approval from The Congress of Chiropractic State Associations, which gives you excellent peace of mind.

The Saatva comes in three firmness options. You can opt for plush soft if you enjoy a soft bed that you can melt in to, and this is a particularly good option for side sleepers. Then there's the luxury firm option which is actually the same type of firmness you’d experience if you were staying at a high-end hotel: great for couples, or if you’re a combination sleeper. Then there’s the firm option which is perfect for heavier body types, or if you tend to sleep on your back or stomach. 

One of our favorite features of the Saatva mattress is that - considering it has springs - any movement is completely isolated. So if you’re moving around a lot at night, or up and down, your partner won’t notice. This is down to the coils being individually wrapped, meaning that they are isolated from every other coil and suspended in a way that eliminates vibration. 

Saatva Mattress review: Features

  • Multiple firmness options
  • Euro-style pillow top
  • High bounce

The Saatva comes in one base model with firmness and height options. You can choose between 11.5 inches or 14.5 inches in height with the top layer being a 1.25-inch layer of foam known as euro-style pillow top which aids pressure relief and gives the mattress a more luxurious feel. 

The next layer is split between memory foam and coils - with the center third of the mattress using memory foam as lumbar support to relieve back tension. The final layer is made up of 7-inch steel hourglass-shaped support coils to provide support, prevent sagging and help with the air circulation, not to mention giving a good amount of bounce. This mattress also benefits from amazing edge support because it includes foam rails around the perimeter of the bed, so it feels softer and offers consistent support. Ideal if you move around a lot at night.

Saatva uses eco-friendly materials so if you are looking to be more environmentally friendly when choosing your next mattress then this could be the one for you. They use recycled steel for the coils, bio-based foams, and organic cotton in the cover.

Saatva offers an excellent break-down of how each mattress is built on its website. Of note, we do enjoy the comfort offered by the top layer of the Saatva mattress, as it brings a luxury feel even on firmer models.

There's a video guide to each type of firmness on site, although generally we didn't find that the rest of the Saatva website offers enough in terms of guides and useful information. Even the endorsement info is very slight.

One of the key features of the Saatva mattress is that it is durable, and the fact that it's hand delivered means that you can use it straight away, it won't get damaged by a boxing process, and it will last until you change your mattress in eight to ten years.

Saatva Mattress: User reviews

Saatva claims that it’s one of the best-reviewed mattresses and, looking at the user reviews, we can see that’s right. Customers rave about the experience of buying from Saatva, especially those who were nervous about buying a mattress online. They also have high praise for the comfort levels of the mattresses. The 120 night trial period also had a big thumbs up from a variety of customers, although most people say they felt the results of such a comfortable and well-designed mattress straight away. 

Should you buy a Saatva Mattress?

We think for the price, the Saatva is extremely good value for money, even if it’s more expensive than some competitors. We love that it comes in just one model but you can choose which thickness and comfort level you’d like, and the price doesn’t differ regardless of the comfort size or height you choose. 

Saatva offers a ‘slightly over the industry-standard’ trial period, with 120 nights, so you can get a true feel of how comfortable you find the mattress. If you change your mind within the first 120 days you can return it no questions asked but you will be charged a $99 transportation fee, unlike most internet mattress retailers who offer free returns. If you’re looking for a mattress that will provide you with excellent support as well as giving you that luxury hotel feeling then you can’t go wrong with a Saatva.
