Are Koala mattresses good? Yep, and here’s why

Are Koala mattresses good?

We love talking about mattresses — no surprises there! We eat, breathe and sleep good mattresses. So when people ask ‘Are Koala mattresses worth it?’, our answer is always ‘yes’, followed by all the reasons we love our Koala mattresses the most.

Okay, so our mattresses look and feel good – that part was easy. But are Koala mattresses good for you? And do they bring anything new to the table?

They sure do. We’ve got the technology, the craftsmanship and the quality control to make world-class products, and it’s our job to make sure that that quality comes right back to you.

But don’t just take our word for it. In this article, we’ll give you all the deets so that you can make up your own mind about where we stand. We’re nice like that.

The story behind Koala mattresses

There is zero guesswork when it comes to designing a Koala mattress. Every single one is thoroughly tried and tested by our mattress testing team (as well as you guys) to ensure that everyone gets the sleep they deserve.

We even offer a 10-year warranty based on our technology and testing. That’s because Koala mattresses are designed to last for a full 10 years.

How, you ask? Here’s a quick lesson. Many other springless mattresses are made from memory foam, which means you sink into the mattress as you sleep. As a result you’ll probably overheat and wake up tired and grumpy. No thanks!

To overcome this sinking feeling, Koala invented Kloudcell™. This foam technology means you’ll never sink into a Koala mattress, which is designed to be responsive, breathable and hugely supportive.

Sound good? Stephanie Roberts Baxter is Koala’s Sleep Business Manager. She shares her thoughts on what really goes on behind the scenes.

“Our independent 3rd party testing is really important. We test for everything from durability to fabric quality. We look at what materials make the best foam layers and the best order to put those layers in. This is all so that we can give you the most supportive sleep and the plushest of comforts.

“Our user testing is also a big part of what we do at Koala. We really want to understand what our customers love and what they’d like to see done differently. This is why our goal is to always be meeting their needs — to make sure they’re getting the best night’s sleep.”

At Koala, along with quality, our two other key considerations are safety and sustainability. We work tirelessly towards making sure that our fabrics are free from nasty chemicals and that we’re doing our bit for the world, all while maintaining a topnotch product line.

The four mattresses

The Koala SE Mattress

We want every Aussie to sleep the best they can, each and every night; no matter their budget. So, we took all the smarts of our crowd-fave Koala Mattress and simplified the design just a tad to deliver our best-value mattress (that’ll still deliver your best night’s sleep!)… the Koala SE Mattress. 

What did we remove, you ask? Our other three Koala mattresses are made with our flippable Kloudcell™ comfort layer, allowing you to adjust the firmness as you need. They all feel soft and cozy while still being able to give you the exact amount of support that you need. We know — we’re really nailing this whole mattress thing.

For every mattress sold, we also donate a portion of sales to the WWF. It’s all about Koalas helping other koalas. So, if you’re ready for a quick browse, let’s take a look at our range.

The Koala Mattress

This mattress is a great choice for side sleepers, front sleepers and all those in between sleepers.

We use TENCEL™ Lyocell fibre in the sleep surface to keep things breathable and soft, and the base has extra support to stop you sinking and sweating while you sleep.

TL:DR? Here’s why its great: 

🐨 Zoned support

🐨 Improved airflow

🐨 Natural origin breathable cover

The Koala Calm As Mattress

This mattress has all of the same support as the New Koala mattress but with an added one-centimetre layer of quilting to make things extra snuggly. For those of you who love sleeping right near the edge of the bed, we’ve added reinforced edges to stop you slipping off while you snooze.

Our 3 zone support will take the pressure off your joints, and our COOLMAX® fabric will keep you cool and calm all night long.

TL:DR? Here’s why its great: 

🧘  Zoned support

🧘 Improved airflow

🧘 Cooling cover

🧘 StayPut Edge Support

The Koala Soul Mate Mattress

In our opinion, the Koala Soul Mate has everything you need in a mattress. With two centimetres of added quilting, this is our most plush design yet.

Five zones of support relieve pressure in your body, cradle you while you sleep and contour your lines so that you feel gently supported throughout the night. And the bamboo-charcoal memory-foam layer helps you keep your cool.

TL:DR? Here’s why its great: 

❤️‍🔥 Zoning

❤️‍🔥 Improved airflow

❤️‍🔥 Temperature regulation

❤️‍🔥 StayPut Edge Support

❤️‍🔥 Bamboo Charcoal transitional layer

Investing in a good night’s sleep

We get it. Buying a new mattress can feel like a big investment. Hundreds of dollars get spent on a piece of furniture that will only ever get used for a couple of hours each night. You’d rather spend that moolah on a holiday, wouldn’t you?

Okay, here’s why we think that holiday can wait.

Investing in a good night’s sleep is one of the best things you’ll ever do for yourself. Mood swings, health issues, poor concentration and lack of motivation are just some of the side effects of not getting enough shut-eye, not to mention the chronic fatigue that develops overtime.

When you don’t get enough sleep, it can mess with you, so we want to make sure that you have everything in place to be able to get enough. In the same way that we care about our mattresses, we also care about the people sleeping on them.

But why a Koala mattress?

“One of the things our customers love the most about Koala mattresses is our zero-disturbance® technology,” says Steph. “With a lot of mattresses, if one sleeping partner is tossing and turning throughout the night, the other is very likely to be disturbed. With all Koala mattresses, you don’t have that motion flow through to your side of the bed, so it’s much easier for you to have an undisturbed sleep.”

Buying a mattress online has never been easier, and we offer a price range to suit most budgets because we’re certain that a Koala mattress is worth every penny.

We’ll even give you 120 nights to sleep on it. If you’re not happy with the fit and feel after that time, we’ll arrange for a collection and a full refund. It’s the Koala way.
