KAYA vs. Sapira

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.

The Sapira mattress is one of the top hybrid mattresses in the industry. This hybrid mattress is constructed of 5 layers of foam and coils, tallying at 11”.

Sapira has high-density foams, an advanced pocketed coil system, Edge support, and a cooling solution, making it a great hybrid mattress.

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.

Now that you’re introduced, let’s see how Sapira fares against KAYA?

1. Materials/Durability

The specifications are clearly in KAYA’s favor, as it has the edge in several categories while Sapira does not take the lead in a single category. KAYA’s foam layers have better density, with the top layer leading the way (KAYA’s 5-PCF Highly Responsive HD foam vs. Sapira’s 3.65 PCF Avena® foam). The second layers of both mattresses have great high-density memory foams (4-PCF), while the third foam layer is once again in KAYA’s favor (2-PCF vs. 1.8-PCF). The 4th layer is very close between the two, as both have very similar builds. Both mattresses pride themselves with over 1,000 pocketed coils, inside a 6” layer. Both mattresses are tall, standing at 11”.

Looking at the cover, it’s mostly a matter of functionality for us. While we agree that Sapira’s cover might look a bit better, seeing as the cover is usually covered by bed sheets, it doesn’t seem to be like the quality you should look for in a cover. Both covers are seamless, which gives that nice smooth feeling, but the real difference here is the Cooling ThermoGel infused in the KAYA mattress. KAYA’s cooling solution is outstanding, as it brings its cooling qualities as close as it gets, where you can feel it. KAYA’s ThermoGel actively starts cooling when it detects unwanted heat and humidity. Which brings us to Sapira’s cooling system, which is based on its perforated top foam layers which allow airflow. Additionally, both mattresses have good cooling properties thanks to their Hybrid design, in which the coils allow better breathability as opposed to all-foam mattresses.

2. Firmness

Medium-Firm 
KAYA

Firm 
Sapira

Mattress firmness is one of its more important qualities. While it’s mostly a matter of personal preference, most people agree that a mattress should be soft enough to provide comfort, and firm enough to provide support. Both mattresses do a great job in this. The KAYA mattress was tried and tested by professionals, until it was ultimately decided to have it belong to the Medium-Firm category. It has an initial soft feel at the top and deep firm support. According to multiple reviews, the Sapira mattress seems to be on the firmer side, sometimes rated as 7/10 in firmness. If you prefer your mattress less on the firm side, but not too soft, we would recommend KAYA over Sapira.

4. Warranty

20 Years 
KAYA

10 Years 
Sapira

We can start from the bottom line: KAYA offers a 20-year warranty while Sapira offers 10. KAYA’s 20-year warranty is well above the standard. KAYA will fully replace or repair the mattress if the mattress is deemed defective within the first ten year of ownership, to the original purchaser. For the next years, up to the 20th year, KAYA will provide additional coverage and repair or replace the mattress at a prorated cost. Sapira, on the other hand, offers its warranty to the original purchaser for 10 years only, as mentioned in their website: “For 10 years after you purchase your new mattress, when it has a defect covered under the warranty, we will replace or repair it.”

Summary

Going over the specifications one by one, KAYA is the clear winner in this comparison. KAYA’s foam layers have better density, with the top layer leading the way (KAYA’s 5-PCF Highly Responsive HD foam vs. Sapira’s 3.65 PCF Avena® foam).

The 4th layer is very close between the two, as both have very similar builds. Both mattresses pride themselves with over 1,000 pocketed coils, inside a 6” layer.

Each has an advantage in the Cover category. While KAYA has the advantage of active cooling properties in the cover itself, Sapira has a better overall look.

The firmness category could go either way, as it depends on your own personal taste. KAYA’s firmness is in the Medium-Firm category while Sapira is on the firmer side according to reviews.

KAYA beats Sapira in other important aspects as well: While both offer free shipping and returns, KAYA offers a longer trial period (120 days vs. Sapira’s 100). Additionally, KAYA offers a warranty of 20 years, while Sapira offers 10.
