Kaya Mattress Review

Looking for a cool mattress with more of a floating feeling vs a sinking feeling?

This review takes a look at the new KAYA Sleep hybrid mattress, a new hybrid pocketed coil / foam mattress that recently hit the online mattress market.  The Kaya promises high quality materials and construction in a premium mattress that sleeps cool and at an affordable price.

The Kaya Mattress uses a combination of responsive foam, memory foam and pocketed coils to create a balanced feel with good support and pressure relief.   The cover is infused with gel so it feel cooler to the touch and circulates air better for cooler sleep.

The Kaya is also a hybrid design so it has good bounce making it easy to move around and circulate air better than a foam core.

A note from Kaya

The KAYA Technology

KAYA is a premium, five-layered mattress. It’s topped by a cooling ThermoGel-infused cover, followed by a 5-PCF, high-density, responsive foam and supported by one of the most advanced pocketed-coil systems the world has to offer.

Our high quality foams are of the highest-density available in the market, backing our promises of durability, comfort and longevity. Our individually pocketed-coils make sure you’re provided with great edge support and minimal motion transfer, while keeping the mattress cool thanks to airflow.

You will like the Kaya Mattress if you:

  • Want a good medium feel – The Kaya has a universal feel that worked well in all positions.  The Kaya is ncie and soft on top but firm underneath.  It worked well for me at 200lbs in all positions.  I can see some people thinking its a little firm.
  • Like a good combo of bounce & body conformance – The Kaya Mattress has very comfortable foams on top that conform nicely and provide good support and pressure relief and the pocketed coils provide good bounce as well.  It has a good balance between the two.  You have more of a sleeping on the mattress vs a lot of body hug.
  • Are a hot sleeper – The Kaya Bed uses a variety of cooling features including the Thermogel infused cover.  The Responsive foam layer is above the memory foam so that stays cooler as well.  In addition the coil unit provides better airflow that a foam core would.
  • Want something more than a 10″ foam mattress – We see a lot of 10″ foam mattresses coming out with little innovation.  It was nice to see a new design element that is meaningful to the performance of the mattress like the layering they have in the Kaya Sleep Bed.

You might not like the Kaya Mattress if you:

  • Prefer a traditional memory foam feel – Kaya uses memory foam but its a layer down so you have the pressure relief there but no stuck feeling with the responsive layer on top and coils on bottom.
  • Prefer a foam mattress – I you prefer an all foam feel you might want to look elsewhere since this uses a pocketed coil unit inside.
  • Want something super soft – Kaya is a nice medium but if you prefer soft you will want to look somewhere else.

Kaya Mattress OFF GASSING

The first thing you will do when you get your Kaya mattress is bring it to the room you will open it in.  You do not want to unroll it in another room.  Once you are ready to open it you can use the cutter some brands provide, if not use a scissors and be careful not to cut the fabric.

As it starts opening it will expand quickly and you will only notice a slight “new mattress smell”.  The Kaya mattress is made in the USA so it is not roll packed very long, which helps with minimize off gassing.

“Off Gassing” for me is tricky because no matter what brand you are looking at they are going to have a smell.  “Natural” or Organic” mattresses often times have the strongest smell, even though people associate them with no off gassing.  A smell is normal and no matter what brand you buy is going to have some kind of new smell.

In most cases the smell will be gone within 12-36 hours or very faint.  I always recommend using a mattress protector so once the mattress airs out use a protector and sheets and at that point you should not experience much smell at all.

Kaya Mattress Construction

ThermoGel Infused Cover

Created in one continuous knitting process, with no stitching lines, for the best possible feeling. The cover is infused with specialized ThermoGel, to provide cooling when it’s truly needed. By using the advanced technology of a high-pressured padding system, we have infused the ThermoGel into the cover itself, making it cool where it counts.

The Kaya cover is also stretchy and stays tight on the mattress.

Kaya Foundation

The Kaya Mattress will work great on any solid surface.  The floor, platform slats, boxspring/foundation and they now offer an adjustable base as well.

His and Hers – Firmness and Feel:

My thoughts (Ross)

Right out of the box I was impressed by the Kaya.  Its not overly thick but still uses a great coil unit.  It was heavier than 75% of the other bed-in-a-box options which is good.  It uses quality materials.

When you 1st open the Kaya it was pretty much ready to sleep on immediately.  After a couple hours for sure, it expanded pretty rapidly since it has coils.

The overall experience on the Kaya was great.  It certainly has a nice medium feel that worked well for all sleeping positions.

One of my favorite aspects of the mattress was that it has the “responsive” foam layer above the memory foam.  So you conform in right away.  You still have the pressure relief of memory foam but you are able to move around very easily and the I feel that it sleeps cooler than it would it the memory foam were on top.  The Kaya Mattress is also priced very well when considering that it’s a substantial mattress.

Her thoughts (Kayla)

For me the Kaya felt great too.  Being lighter than Ross I tend to like a softer mattress.  Because of this I pay close attention to how easy it is for me to conform into a mattress if its not uber soft.  The top responsive layer worked great here, it still conforms in nicely for lighter sleepers too.  The combination of foams and the order they are in paired with the hybrid coils make the Kaya have a good balance of pressure relief and bounce while still maintaining little motion transfer.

The cover is very pretty (although is covered up!) The final verdict for me on the Kaya is that its a luxury mattress with a good price and the overall comfort level should appeal to most people out there.

Another thing to note is that its not super thick which I like.  Some get too high for our dog to jump up so this was thicker than a 10″ mattress so it performs better but not super thick where its too high off the ground.

Softness-Firmness level: 5
1 Very Soft
5 Medium
10 Very Firm

Temperature & Off Gassing:

The Kaya Mattress did not have any issues with sleeping hot.  What helps this is the ThermoGel cover and the main thing I think is the fact that the memory foam is down a layer.  Memory foam can be the hottest foam if its not gel infused or anything.  Also, the coil unit vs a foam core helps air move more freely.

Off Gassing: The Kaya did not have any issue with bad off gassing.  They are made in the USA so they are not rolled for very long.  All of these mattresses will have a “new mattress smell”, even organic ones, that is normal and will go away after a day or two.

Adjustable Base Performance:

Although we didn’t film the Kaya on a base you can be sure it will work fantastic on an adjustable base.

Overall Summary

I would recommend trying the Kaya for anyone looking for a hybrid mattress with a medium feel. Thos wanting really soft should not buy it but most people should like the feel.

Right out of the box I was impressed by the Kaya.  Its not overly thick but still uses a great coil unit.  It was heavier than 75% of the other bed-in-a-box options which is good.  It uses quality materials.

Overall its a great mattress.
