What Makes the Simba Mattress Different?

Simba combines the superior elements of foam and spring mattresses to create this exceptional hybrid using careful research and trials, offering everyone a sleep experience that is seemingly customized to each person’s nighttime habits.

Made for All

Nothing is worse than investing in a mattress that doesn’t compliment your sleep habits. When this happens, you spend even more money on add ons to conform to your best bed. The Simba Hybrid mattress was made for everyone in mind: hot to cool sleepers, men and women, stomach to back sleepers, and most heights and weights. Simba’s five-layer system will have you thinking the mattress was tailor-made for you. They are so sure you’ll love this design that you get 100 nights to return it no questions asked.

Thoroughly Tested

It’s no wonder Simba is so confident in their mattress technology—they went through 70 prototypes before finding the perfect one. They studied 180 million body profiles measures keeps demographics, pressure points, sleep positions, and weight distribution in mind. The result is a hybrid mattress that accommodates each sleeper.

Bringing You the Best of Both Worlds

Being a hybrid mattress, Simba takes you everything you love about foam and spring mattresses and combines them. You get the softness and comfort of a foam mattress without any of the heat, and you get the support of a spring mattress without the motion transfer. The result is a mattress that’s not only cool and comforting, but supportive as well.

Custom Simbatex

This proprietary layer made of what’s called Simbatex foam is a cooling comfort layer that is designed to increase airflow throughout the mattress and keep hot sleepers cool.

What to watch out for

  • The Simba Hybrid does not deliver directly to the US, but they are available for purchase online at Macy’s.
  • You may notice that your Simba Hybrid mattress has a mild scent after unboxing (but don’t worry, it’s normal and will dissipate in a few hours).
  • It may take up to 30 nights to get used to sleeping on your Simba Hybrid mattress – particularly if your previous mattress was a traditional innerspring mattress

Customer Reviews of the Simba Mattress

My husband was suffering greatly with his back before this mattress and now he can at least sleep in peace. I too was suffering with aches and pains whilst in bed and the Simba mattress has allowed me to sleep more soundly. Roxy S.
I am a front sleeper and my mattress caused nothing but problems in my back and hips. Since having my simba mattress for the last 3 weeks I no longer feel the aches and pains of an 80 year old woman I felt before. Laurie C.
This for me is the best mattress that I have ever owned, maybe the best one in the world. Luke C.
