Is Zenhaven a Good Mattress for Back, Stomach, or Side Sleepers?

Latex mattresses have a faster response time and less of the “sink in” feel that memory foam mattresses have, making Zenhaven a great choice for active and combination sleepers who change positions frequently at night, or for anyone who prefers a lighter feel and more bounce than memory foam.

Choosing sides is encouraged, since the Zenhaven is constructed with two distinct comfort zones on either side of the mattress.

The company rates the Luxury Plush side a 4-to-5 out of 10 on the firmness scale. This side is described as a softer, zero-gravity feel and is designed to contour and support the body, relieve pressure points from all sleep positions and deliver a plush, luxurious feel. Side sleepers, especially those under 230 pounds, may prefer this side since it more closely conforms to the body.

On the flip side, the Gentle Firm is 18 percent firmer than the Luxury Plush side, giving stomach and back sleepers more uplifting, pressure-free support. The company rates the Gentle Firm between a 7 and 8 out of 10 for firmness.

Since Zenhaven is made with an all-natural aerated Talalay latex and constructed with pin holes that form the zoned support layers, it has excellent breathability. In fact, the company reports that Talalay latex is seven times more breathable than Dunlop latex, making it the most breathable latex on the market. Paired with a breathable, organic cotton cover and organic wool layer that wicks away moisture, Zenhaven is ideal for those who sleep hot, but prefer a mattress that’s all natural and chemical-free.

Another benefit of Talalay latex is that it’s hypoallergenic, dust mite resistant, mold resistant and certified free of harmful chemicals, so allergy sufferers and eco-conscious shoppers may prefer the cleaner sleep of Zenhaven.

For couples, Zenhaven offers an additional co-sleeping benefit thanks to their Split King option. Since each of the two mattresses that make up the Split King can be flipped to a different comfort level, you have built-in adjustability that most other latex mattresses don’t offer. So no need to compromise if you prefer a firmer sleep while your partner likes it plush—you can both get your way! Just be aware of the seam that forms down the middle of the Split King; some reviewers mentioned that it’s noticeable, but not uncomfortable.

How It Works: Purchasing Your Zenhaven Mattress

If you’re thinking about purchasing a Zenhaven for your next mattress, you’ll be happy to know that ordering online is a relatively quick and easy process.

First, choose your mattress size. Zenhaven is available in six different sizes, and you can find all the details and dimensions for each in the specifications section on the Zenhaven page. If you’re unsure whether a certain size will fit through your door or hallway, you can chat with a Sleep Guide online or by phone to help you get the right fit.

If you need a new foundation, now’s a good time to get one—Saatva offers a discount of up to $100 on their foundations and adjustable bases if you bundle it with your mattress purchase. You can also take a peek at sleep accessories, like the organic mattress pad, organic sheet sets and latex pillows to complete your dream bed.

The free white glove delivery and setup service will automatically be added to your order, but if you’d like to take advantage of the free mattress and foundation removal service for your old bed, be sure to check the box for that on the same page that you enter your contact info and shipping address during checkout.

Since all of Saatva’s mattresses are made to order (and never compressed into a box), only after you purchase your Zenhaven mattress will construction of your mattress begin. The company gives a range of 9-to-21 days from the date of purchase for your mattress to be delivered, so be sure to plan accordingly. When your mattress is ready for delivery, Saatva’s white glove delivery service will contact you to arrange a day and time that works best for you.

Currently, Zenhaven mattresses can only ship to the contiguous United States, but if you live in Hawaii or Alaska, the company can help set you up with a freight forwarding service in California or Seattle.

Zenhaven Mattress Materials & Design

As with every Saatva brand mattress, there’s an undeniable focus on premium, quality materials and workmanship with the Zenhaven.

It’s constructed of 100 % Talalay latex, which is a key differentiator from other latex mattresses that use Dunlop latex. Due to its manufacturing process, Talalay latex is softer and more breathable than Dunlop latex, while providing a buoyant “floating” sensation with a slight bounce.

The design offers a unique combination of features: Two different comfort levels—luxury plush and gentle firm—accessible with a flip of the mattress, five-zone support for pressure-point relief and natural, cooling materials for a comfortable, healthy sleep.

In total, Zenhaven has four layers of Talalay latex, specially designed for each of the two comfort levels, plus a layer of organic wool and cotton cover on each side.

So let’s jump under the covers and see exactly what a Zenhaven mattress is made of:

The Top Layer:

The Zenhaven is flippable, which means the top of each side starts with a quilted, plush cover made from 100 percent organic cotton that’s breathable, soft, and naturally hypoallergenic. It’s treated with Saatva’s exclusive Guardin® botanical antimicrobial treatment to prevent the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew.

Next is a layer of organic New Zealand wool. It’s a natural flame retardant that wicks away moisture to help regulate body temperature at night.

The Middle Layers:

Each side also has its own comfort layer that features five distinct zones, designed to enhance support in the lumbar region and maximum pressure-point relief.

To form the five-zone structure, natural Talalay latex is tapped from tropical rubber trees, processed and molded around hundreds of narrow pins that vary in closeness, forming pinholes and creating the different densities that help relieve pressure and align the spine. Bonus: The pinholes also enhance the breathability of the latex, making for a cooler sleeping experience.

The Bottom Layer:

There are two Talalay latex support layers in the Zenhaven—one for the Luxury Plus side and one for the Gentle Firm side. Each support layer is highly resilient and durable to give optimal support for all sleep styles.

Where is Zenhaven Mattress Made?

All of the main elements of Zenhaven mattresses are sourced and constructed in the U.S. Every Zenhaven mattress is made to order and is delivered “factory fresh,” meaning they’re never boxed or stored in a warehouse for long periods of time.

How Much Does Zenhaven Mattress Cost?

When it comes to latex mattresses, Zenhaven falls on the luxury end of the spectrum. However, premium materials and the supreme service standard back up the price tag with unmatched service and support.

Twin XL (38" x 80") $1,599

Why We Love It: The Bottom Line

If you’re leaning toward a latex mattress, the main drivers of your decision are likely natural, eco-friendly materials, a more responsive, bouncier sleep than memory foam, or both—and Zenhaven delivers on all accounts.

It’s a luxury mattress experience from start to finish, at a lower price point than other Talalay latex mattresses on the market.

And when you add the generous 180-night trial period, 15-year warranty and free white-glove delivery, setup, and mattress removal, the value can’t be beat.

THE BEST BED EVER

This will be the best purchase you ever make. You spend a 1/3 or more of your life in bed so having the best bed possible makes economical sense. I purchased my bed in April of 2019 and wanted a bed that sleeps cool and this bed does. I can also lay on my back and sleep and have all the support I need. I purchased the adjustable lineal frame when I bought the bed, together they are the best thing I have bought in a long time. As I type this review I am doing it in my bed. You will have the best sleep ever in this bed.....

Best Bed Of My Life!

All I can say is wow. This bed is not only the best bed I have ever had, but maybe the best purchase! I honestly don’t take time to write reviews but night after night of amazing rest had to be praised! I have asthma and allergies and have had issues with other furniture having chemicals that bother me from other companies, so I was looking for a clean natural bed that also has good support as I have a bad lower back. My husband prefers a softer bed so we needed something in between. This bed is perfect for both of us! You feel so supported on it but the softness of the top ensures that it is not too rigid. I feel supported yet soft. I cannot recommend this bed enough! Absolutely a dream!

Love Our Zenhaven!

Our expensive Simmons pillowtop mattress was only 5 years old, but the deep depressions in it were ruining our sleep. We dreaded another store experience with pushy salespeople and confusing pricing, but we were also wary of buying a bed online. After doing a lot of research we visited Saatva's website and purchased the Zenhaven. The thousands of satisfied customers, white glove delivery, and return policy convinced us to take a chance. The ordering and delivery were easy, and the bed is wonderful! No adjustment was needed, my husband and I both loved it from the first night. We'll see how it holds up over time, but right now we're extremely satisfied customers. Thank you!

Great Decision For Us

We've had our Zenhaven mattresses for about three months, and we couldn't be happier. We ordered twin extra-long mattresses that fit together on the king bed foundation. My husband prefers the firmer side, and I like the luxury plush --- but honestly, either one would be fine, and I like that we will be able to flip them over if we ever change our minds. The bed sleeps cool and provides support without feeling too firm.... important because my husband has a rotator cuff problem and I have a lower back injury. Delivery was very efficient -- and it was nice to have our old innerspring mattress and box springs hauled away.
