KAYA mattress review
The KAYA mattress is a good middle-of-the-road option for mattress shoppers. It’s not too expensive, it combines the benefits of both memory foam and innerspring pocket coils, and it has a balanced medium-firmness. The KAYA mattress is a good choice for the average sleeper.
Set up test
The KAYA Sleep mattress took us a minute and 17 seconds to set up. The KAYA Sleep didn’t have a noticeable odor or any difficult packaging to deal with; however, it did take a few hours to take its full shape.
So for our setup test, KAYA gets a 9 out of 10.
Motion Transfer Test
Part A - The Humans
According to RJ and Asha, the KAYA Sleep wasn’t the best at isolating motion. They both agreed that they were a little disturbed by their partner’s movements. So they gave it a collective score of 7.25.
Part B - The Wine
While there was a little wobble to the wine, overall it stayed pretty still. So we gave it an 8.5.
So for a total motion transfer score, we gave KAYA a 7.9 out of 10.
Edge Support Test
Part A - The Shoe Test
The KAYA Sleep scored an 8.5 for the edge shoe test. RJ and Asha both felt pretty stable while putting on their kicks.
Part B - The Side Test
Once again, RJ and Asha found it safe to stretch out on the side of the KAYA Sleep. For the edge support side test, they gave it a collective score of 8.5.
So KAYA gets a 8.5 out of 10 for edge support.
Pressure Relief Test
We saw a lot of warm tones in RJ’s shoulders – So we gave him a 6.5 for pressure relief.

Spine Alignment Test
The KAYA Sleep did a phenomenal job of keeping both RJ and Asha’s spines in alignment.
For spine alignment, KAYA gets a 9 out of 10.
Let’s face it, you want your significant other to always listen and respond to your emotions, don’t you? Well you want your mattress to do the same thing with your body movements.
We had RJ and Asha lie in each sleeping position, side, stomach and back. As they changed positions and got settled in, we asked them to rate on a scale from one to ten how quickly and easily the mattress responded to their movement.
The KAYA Sleep mattress knows how to listen to you!
So KAYA gets a 9 out of 10 for responsiveness.
