KAYA vs. Saatva

The following review was conducted by the KAYA Sleep, Inc. employees, and as such we realize cannot be completely objective. However, great efforts were made to present the factual information as is, as we believe in the importance of transparency.

Saatva mattresses are premium innerspring mattresses, with a “coil on coil” construction. The mattress is topped by a euro-style pillow, and followed by two coil layers encased with memory foam. They come in 3 different firmness levels, and offer a 15-year warranty along with a 120-day trial ($99 return fee if you’re unsatisfied). The Saatva mattress is highly durable, and sleeps cool, thanks to its coil build. It is no doubt one of the best innerspring mattress deals in the market.

The KAYA mattress is a premium hybrid mattress, designed by sleep experts with years of experience. KAYA is constructed of 3 layers of the highest density foams available, with a pocketed coil core of over 1,000 springs. Its high-density foam layers provide top-notch support and durability, while its pocketed coil core takes care of body contouring, amazing Edge support, and minimal motion transfer. To top it all off, KAYA’s cover is infused with ThermoGel, which starts cooling when truly needed, and close to your skin, where it counts. A mattress of this quality, at such an affordable price, with a trial period of 120 days and a 20-year warranty, cannot be found anywhere else.

Both mattresses are at the top of their respective categories, but which one would be better for you? Check out the comparison below!

Best overall mattress – KAYA

Pitting one of the best innerspring mattresses against the best the hybrid category has to offer, this comparison was no easy task. Seeing as one is a premium hybrid and the other is an innerspring mattress, personal preference plays a big part here. However, the hybrid design does indeed provide the best of both worlds when built the right way, and KAYA fits this description perfectly. Thanks to its excellence in every category, truly free trial period, and an advantage in price – KAYA is the better option.

1. Materials/Durability

Comparing these two great mattresses is not an easy task, and their differences should be well acknowledged.

KAYA is a premium mattress with a sophisticated Hybrid design, meaning that it utilizes the qualities of both pocketed coils and high-density foams to its advantage.

Saatva on the other hand is an innerspring mattress, and has a coil-on-coil build, relying on the advantages of its coils.

When comparing foam densities, its not even a real match, as KAYA boasts one of the best densities available in the market. While foams are not the main feature of innerspring mattresses such as Saatva, they are used to even out the response of their coils. These foams can be weak spots in such mattresses and are often overlooked. Talking in numbers, KAYA’s main foam layers have jaw dropping densities of 5-PCF and 4-PCF (along with a transitional layer of 2-PCF).  Saatva’s foam densities are between 1.5-1.8 PCF.

Next up are the coil layers. Saatva is an innerspring mattress, and its coil layers are the main feature. Saatva has two coil layers – an 884 individually wrapped coil layers, and a 416 hourglass shaped coil system for support (which also has a dual perimeter edge support system to make up for the coil layers). Coils are known for their great durability, which is one of Saatva’s greatest qualities.

KAYA has a Pocketed Coil layer of over 1,000 top-grade steel coils, wrapped between two high-quality, supporting foam layers. Thanks to KAYA’s sophisticated build with its high-density foams on top, KAYA’s edge support is amazing.

Cooling-wise, both mattresses do an excellent job in keeping the sleeper nice and cool throughout the night. Saatva’s innerspring build allows great airflow, as innerspring mattresses are known for that feature. KAYA has the same cooling properties in its coil layer, and made sure to add specialized ThermoGel, infused in its cover. ThermoGel kicks in right when it’s needed, and thanks to it being infused in the cover, it is as close as it gets to your skin. Overall, both mattresses provide the goods when it comes to cooling.

Motion transfer, or motion isolation, is also a feature worth reviewing. Thanks to its hybrid build of high-density foams over its coil layer, KAYA outperforms Saatva, and has virtually zero motion transfer, making it ideal for sharing the bed with your partner.

2. Firmness

Medium-Firm 
KAYA

Luxury Firm 
Saatva

Personal preference plays a big part in choosing between these two excellent mattresses, as Saatva has the innerspring feel while KAYA has the premium hybrid feel. While some reviewers have noted that Saatva’s Luxury Firm version is a bit on the firmer side, KAYA was mentioned to have an initial soft feel at the top with deep firmer support. If you prefer a more modern, thinner cover, that let’s you feel closer to the quality materials of the mattress, KAYA would better suit you. Otherwise, if the padding of a Euro Pillow Top is important to you, Saatva would be the way to go.

* It is important to mention that Saatva has two more models, offering a Plush Soft and Firm option as well. Seeing as the Medium-Firm option is the most popular one by a majority, it was the one used for this comparison.

At first glance you might believe this one is a tie, as both offer a 120-day trial, which is more than enough and well above the industry standard. However, while both companies offer 120 days of trial, Saatva charge a $99 return fee, practically making Saatva’s trial a $99 trial and not a free one.

KAYA on the other hand, does not charge for shipping nor does it charge for returns, making the 120-day free trial extremely worthwhile. It is important to mention, that Saatva does offer free white glove delivery and mattress removal.

Summary

We’ve went through two of the best mattresses the market has to offer. One is a well-built, coil-on-coil style innerspring mattress, and the other is a highly durable mattress with a sophisticated hybrid design.

Both mattresses are great choices, and you won’t be wrong taking either mattress.

If you love the feel of a foam mattress, along with the support and durability of pocketed coils KAYA is the one for you. You will enjoy amazing body contouring, minimal motion transfer, great edge support and all while sleeping nice and cool. If you like an initial soft touch with deeper firm support – you will truly enjoy KAYA, and for an amazing price of $1195 (and enjoy a free 120-day trial, with free shipping and returns).

Otherwise, if you prefer the innerspring feel, and the euro pillow top, Saatva is a great choice. You will enjoy a great durable mattress, with excellent cooling and a firmer feel. You will get a 120 trial, but you should note there’s a $99 return charge.

Finally, we need a final verdict. Taking into consideration its advantages of having a hybrid design, which smartly utilizes both high density foams and top-grade steel coils, and its better warranty, free trial and for a better price – KAYA is the winner here.
