The KAYA Mattress is a product of the company KAYA that has been recently incorporated to provide the consumers with a mattress that is not only very comfortable but is also highly durable and long lasting.

The company has used a combination of superior quality high density foam layers with an advanced pocketed coils systems and eco-friendly materials to produce a hybrid mattress that fulfills the company’s objective.

The mattress has been designed keeping in mind the needs and requirements of the majority of sleepers and thus, provides a comfortable sleeping surface for most of the people.

What type of Mattress is the KAYA?

The KAYA is a luxury hybrid mattress manufactured and developed to provide the customers with an unmatched level of comfort, great support, good bounce, pressure relief, and high durability.

the KAYA mattress in a roomIt is a premium five-layer mattress that supports all types of sleeping positions, accommodates sleepers of all sizes and weights, and provides great edge-support for a larger sleeping surface.

Furthermore, the mattress has a ThermoGel infused cover that not only provides cooling but also helps in maintaining comfortable sleeping temperatures for a good night’s sleep.

How Firm is it?

The KAYA Mattress has been designed and developed to provide a sleeping surface that is ideal for the majority of sleepers and is therefore presented with a medium-firm level of firmness.

The KAYA is about a 6 on the firmness scale, 10 being the firmest and is therefore perfect for almost all types of sleepers including side, back, and stomach sleepers.

The mattress provides pressure relief which makes it comfortable for side sleepers, presents a balanced level of sinkage, and provides proper spinal alignment which makes it ideal for back sleepers.

In addition to this, it provides a great level of support which is the main requirement of stomach sleepers.

How Many Layers Does it Have?

The KAYA is an 11-inch premium quality mattress that has been designed and crafted using 5 different layers that together provide an unmatched level of comfort and support.

  1. The top layer of the mattress consists of a 1 inch high density, extremely responsive foam layer that quickly adapts according to the body shape and provides a great level of support.
  2. kaya layersThe second layer of the mattress consists of a 2 inch high quality memory foam layer. This high density layer helps in providing relief for pressure points and delivering an optimal level of comfort.
  3. The third layer of the mattress is made up of a 1 inch, 2 lbs. foam layer that acts as a transitional layer between the memory foam layer and the pocketed coil system. It also provides added support and comfort.
  4. The fourth layer of the KAYA mattress consists of 1,000+ premium-grade steel pocketed coils that are 6 inches high and are made up of top grade steel. The pocketed coils are sandwiched between two layers of foams to stabilize them and bring the best out of the coil system.
  5. The fifth layer consists of a 1 inch, 1.8 lbs. foam layer that provides a base for the coil system to rest on, Furthermore, it provides overall support to the mattress.

The transitional layer, pocketed coil system, and the base layer together form the foundation of the mattress and provide a great level of support, bounce, and edge support for the mattress.

All of the above layers are wrapped in a unique cover that not only provides cooling but also enhances the comfort level of the mattress.

How is Motion Transfer and Sinkage?

The KAYA mattress absorbs motion easily and much like other premium hybrid mattresses does not cause disturbance or disruption to sleep by a partner’s movements.

The mattress presents a balanced level of bounce and sinkage, and quickly adapts to the body shape which reduces motion transfer and confines it to a particular area.

The mattress does not provide a ‘sinking in’ feeling and the pocketed coil system offer the accurate amount of support according to the body weight of the person.

In addition to this, it presents an advanced edge support system. The high quality pocketed coil layer used in the KAYA mattress supports weight all along the perimeter of the bed and offers a larger sleeping surface to the customers.

Does the KAYA Mattress Sleep Hot?

The KAYA Mattress has been designed, keeping in mind the heat retention issue faced in most of the memory foam mattresses and therefore it does not sleep hot.

The mattress is presented with a ThermoGel infused cover. This ThermoGel has been suffused into the cover of the mattress using the advanced technology of a high-pressured padding system.

The cover is the closest part to the body while sleeping and the ThermoGel helps in absorbing heat from the body and dissipating it.

The pocketed coil system provides plenty of inflow and outflow of air which helps is dispersing heat and maintaining comfortable sleeping temperatures.

The foam layers of the KAYA also have a breathable design that allow regular airflow to keep the mattress cool.

Does it Have any Smell?

The KAYA Mattress does have a very little off-gassing or new mattress smell which can be felt when it is first unpacked. This smell is common amongst compressed mattresses and is not a cause of concern at all.

Once the mattress is allowed to decompress and air, the smell goes away completely in about a couple of hours and cannot be felt again.

All the foams used in the KAYA Mattress are CertiPUR-US certified which ensures no harmful or dangerous chemicals have been used in the construction of this mattress.

The company also tries to use eco-friendly materials in the construction of this mattress wherever possible.

Does it Require a Foundation?

The KAYA mattress is compatible with almost all types of bases that have a firm, flat, and sturdy surface and does not require a specific type of foundation.

Any solid platform, a suitable basic frame, a box spring foundation, or a bunkie board on a traditional box spring should work fine for the KAYA mattress.

The mattress is also compatible with adjustable bases and performs equally well.

It has a pocketed coil base which is sandwiched between two layers of stabilizing foam layers at the base that act as the foundation of the mattress, and thus the mattress can also be directly placed on the floor.

However, just make sure that the surface is even and not prone to moisture as this may harm the layers or the cover of the mattress.

What type of Cover does it have?

The cover of the KAYA Mattress has a unique design and is specially prepared for the mattress to optimize the cooling effect and enhance the comfort level.

the kaya mattress cover closeupIt is constructed in one continuous knitting process that helps in getting rid of stitching lines and provides a smooth feel.

The cover is seamless, soft, and plush to touch. It is also stretchy and stays tight on the mattress.

The mattress is also encased with a fire retardant sock that has been chosen for its flammability performance.

The cover is infused with ThermoGel using the advanced technology of a high-pressured padding system. ThermoGel attracts heat from the body and disperses it away to provide a cool sleeping surface.

What is the Best Way to Care for the KAYA Mattress?

It is quite easy to clean and maintain the KAYA Mattress. It does not have a flippable design because of the pocketed coil system but it can be rotated.

The company recommends to rotate the mattress after every 6 months to provide an even wear and prevent the mattress from body impressions and sagging.

In case of small stains on the mattress, the spot cleaning method is recommended. A sponge should be dipped into a mixture of water and a mild detergent, and should be rubbed in circular motion over the stain until it goes away.

What about Durability?

The top half of the KAYA Mattress is constructed using three layers of the highest density foams that are not only comfortable but also highly durable and long lasting.

It is constructed and designed in the US which ensures that the best quality foams and materials have been used in its construction. More than 90% of the steel used in the pocketed coils is also made in America.

The company also offers a 20 years warranty with the mattress and is expected to last for at least this time period.
