Simba Mattress Review

When designing the mattress, Simba has worked closely with “The Sleep To Live Institute”, involving more than 10 million people and measuring 180 million body profile data points, with the mission to create the world’s best mattress.

The result is the Simba Hybrid mattress, which perfectly combines cutting edge design, foam and springs. In addition, all foams in the mattress have received the CertiPUR label, ensuring that there are no unwanted chemicals found inside. They recently introduced the Simba Hybrid Pro mattress which has up to 5,000 Aerocoil springs and a layer of wool.

What’s inside the Simba Hybrid mattress?

The Simba mattress is 25cm deep and is comprised of 5 layers.


Layer 1: Sleep Surface – breathable hypoallergenic sleep surface.
Layer 2: Simbatex – their own patented cooling layer, which is incredibly breathable and helps to promote airflow to cool the mattress naturally.
Layer 3: Springs – 2,500* conical pocket springs (for the King size mattress), which adjust to a person’s shape and movements, minimizing motion transfer between sleeping partners.
Layer 4: Visco memory foam – moulds flawlessly to a person’s body shape.
Layer 5: Support base – promotes durability, comfort and additional temperature control.

Here the mattress cover can’t be removed or washed, that’s why it’s recommended to use the Simba Hybrid with a mattress protector.

What’s inside the Simba Hybrid Pro mattress?

The Simba Hybrid Pro mattress is comprised of 7 layers of hybrid innovation. It is one of Simba’s most advanced mattresses ever, since it has a dual spring layer with up to 5,000 titanium Aerocoil springs. This means that there is greater airflow and better weight distribution. There is also a natural wool layer and an open-cell foam layer which you won’t find in Simba’s original Hybrid mattress. Wool is known to naturally regulate temperature, so you won’t feel hot or cold all year round. Finally, you’ll notice that here you have an even thicker knitted cover, which provides a super soft sleep surface.
