The Simba Beds come with specially engineered Simba-Flex slats, which are designed to offer comfort and pressure relieving support

The slats are divided into five zones, offering tailored support to the shoulders and lumbar section of your body. 

They also match the natural curvature of your spine, helping to align your spine in the correct posture while you sleep.

The beds are manufactured by the mattress company Simba Sleep, which sell one of the highest rated five star mattresses the Simba Hybrid. In this review, we’ll take a closer look at the Orion, Platform Base, Atlas, and Sirius beds and see if they are worth buying or not.

The Simba-Flex slats are responsive and can flex gently on the shoulder and lower back areas. As a result, your body posture is rightly aligned and your body weight evenly distributed. 

When compared to regular bed slats, Simba-Flex slats are more comfortable and relieve body pressure better. This means that you’ll have a more comfortable night sleep, thanks to the specially engineered slats. 

Additional Information:

All three Simba Bed Bases come with free carbon neutral delivery. The delivery period is generally as little as 3 business days. There is an option to have it delivered to your room of choice or have it dropped off at your front door with “zero-contact”.

The Simba beds come with a 10 year guarantee, plus they are all made in the company’s UK factory in Lancashire. The beds are also covered by the company’s “200 night trial” policy. This means that you have up to 200 nights to sleep and test the bed frame, and if you’re not happy with it you can return it for free.

The only downside to the Simba bed frames is that they don’t sell an ottoman bed with storage built in. There is 13cm underbed clearance, however if your bedroom is short on space you might want to consider getting an ottoman bed.

  • There isn’t a lot of negative feedback on the Simba Bed frames, but those that left a complain were not happy that the side rails of the Orion and Sirius bed are padded and take up extra space (make sure you check the dimensions, so you’re sure that it will fit well in your bedroom).
  • Several customers mentioned that the assembly instructions were oversimplified and made assembling the bed too difficult
