These 11 layers make this mattress suitable for pretty much everyone – provided that you can afford it. Without spoiling too much of our review, this one offers a great level of comfort, support, and full-body alignment, so whether you're struggling with back pain or are just looking for a premium mattress – this one is for you.
Your sleep quality will be significantly improved with the Simba Hybrid Luxe Mattress because it has incredible comfort and support. Every sleep position can get comfy on their new mattress, especially those who sleep on their back or side. It will keep your body aligned from head to toe, reducing aches and pains first thing in the morning.
Now for the fun part – our breakdown of the most important features of this mattress. This Simba mattress is the most advanced mattress in their hybrid range. Made up of 11 layers, you can expect all the usual features of a hybrid mattress and more!
Here's what you need to know about Simba Hybrid Luxe before deciding whether you should buy it.
Simba claims their bamboo-infused natural wool top layer is “silky soft” to give you a comfortable sleep surface. Bamboo wool is also naturally hypoallergenic, temperature-regulating, anti-bacterial and moisture-absorbing. Now, bamboo wool isn't what you would call cool or breathable. While it is true that it will keep you cool during the warm nights, it'll also keep you warm during chilly nights. So, depending on the weather and the season, it will adapt to keep you at an ideal body temperature.
Bamboo-infused wool is also great at retaining moisture, which also adds to its overall ability to retain or dissipate heat based on the circumstances. To put it simply, this isn't a cooling layer – it's a temperature-regulating one.
Four of the mattress layers are made up of springs – two layers being titanium Aerocoil springs, one layer of high carbon steel Aerocoil springs and a layer of barrel springs.
The 4000 Aercoil microsprings are smaller and softer. The two 25mm Aerocoil layers serve as cushioning layers with 13 support zones. This helps to tailor to your sleeping position. An extra steel spring layer made up of 1000 springs enhances the support. With the final ‘No roll-off' SupportCore™ base made up of 1000 barrel springs to improve edge support.
When you're handling a mattress that's 31 cm deep with 11 layers at the king size, you need all the help you can get. Fortunately, just like Simba Hybrid and Simba Hybrid Pro, Simba Hybrid Luxe also comes with handles attached to the cover.
The mattress comes with two handles on each side (excluding Single and Small Double mattresses) to make the larger and heavier mattresses easier to lift. It means you can have multiple people helping to place it onto your bed frame, rather than struggling with just two.
These are not only useful, but they're quite important, as well. As is often the case with hybrid mattresses, you have to flip or turn them, especially in the first few months. This is one-sided, so there isn't going to be any flipping involved. However, Simba advises you to rotate the mattress once a month for the first 3 months and then every 3 to 6 months for as long as you keep using it.
Not only should you rotate your hybrid mattress regularly to evenly “break it in”, but it is also important to note that if you don't rotate this particular mattress regularly, you'll be voiding your 10-year warranty.
The Simba Hybrid Luxe Mattress is the one you need for amazing comfort and support. It’s much bouncier than their Pro Mattress, with the help of the extra springs.
Even though it has a bounce, there’s still good edge-to-edge support like the other Simba Hybrid mattresses. This mattress offers pressure relief and keeps your spine aligned which makes it great for back and side sleepers.
Those who are heavier sleepers might find that it’s too soft, and those who sleep on your front may sink in the wrong places – like your hips and your knees.
When taking the mattress out of the box, I left it for a few hours before going back and it had already expanded to height.
However, I would recommend a few more hours for it to fully expand before you sleep on it. Sometimes mattresses can take a couple of days to be at their optimum.
As part of our Simba Hybrid Luxe Mattress review, we would like to include our favourite things about this product and what would make us want to buy it. Here are a few of the best features.
Of course, it's not all amazing and suitable for everyone so we do have to mention the downside to this mattress. There are only a couple of things we feel are not so good about it. Here they are.
Delivery – With Simba, you can get free next-day delivery on your order or another chosen date. After this, we had an order confirmation text with the delivery date which was followed by another text with a two-hour time slot. We were kept in the loop with our delivery so we could ensure we were there to receive it. Thankfully, you get the option of having the heavy mattress delivered to your room of choice, so you don’t have to worry about lifting it on your own.
Payment – Standard card payments are accepted, as well as PayPal. Those wanting to split the cost of this pricey mattress across several months can use various options. You can choose Klarna, DivideBuy or Splitit. Make sure you take a look at their specific terms.
Online customer service – For any problems you might experience, there’s an online bot for you to get answers or you can take a look at their FAQs. If you want to speak to the team, you have the other option of filling out a form on the website for an email response. However, there is no live online chat.
Thinking about upgrading to a Simba Hybrid Luxe mattress? You're in luck! There's a size to suit every kind of sleeper, and guess what? They're all on special promotion right now. Take a look at the table below to discover your ideal match:
If there's something about the Simba Hybrid Luxe that isn't selling it for you, then we have picked out another option that might be more suited to you. The Simba Luxe is a beast of a mattress, one of the chunkiest ones we've reviewed, so you might be on the hunt for one that's not so big but still has similar features.
The Emma Luxe Cooling Mattress seems like the perfect alternative as it can regulate your body temperature – especially keeping you cool in the warmer months.
It's also one of the best mattresses for those who sleep on their side. Comfort and support are achieved in this mattress, making it suitable for all needs.
It's also an excellent choice for couples, as the mattress has excellent motion isolation. So, you can rest assured that your tossing and turning won't make the other side of the mattress feel like a bouncy house!
Not to mention that the mattress offers next-level back support. So, your spine will be properly aligned and you likely won't have to wake up every morning feeling like you're 60 with how much your back hurts.
The only real deterrent is the price, which might be too high for some.

Every great mattress needs a great pillow. So if you're thinking of buying the Luxe mattress, you should probably look into buying the Simba Hybrid Pillow, as well.
This temperature-regulating, highly breathable, fully customisable and adjustable pillow is designed to have you never again turn the pillow over to the cool side.
The cotton cover is enriched with Simba's Stratos technology for better temperature regulation and the inside of the pillow is filled with Nanocubes – small, open-cell foam cubes you can add or remove to achieve the desired firmness and thickness of the pillow.

To put it simply, what separates the Simba Luxe mattress from the others is the excellent engineering, finest materials and quality craftsmanship. Plus, due to its firmness and support, it resembles some orthopaedic mattresses that we had tested earlier.
There are many high-count pocket sprung/hybrid mattresses on the market, but none of them are quite as good as this one.
With Simba Luxe mattress, you can expect excellent support, great temperature regulation, and a comfortable night's sleep for a really long time.
Sure, you will have to pay a lot of money for a Super King-size mattress, but with proper care and maintenance, this one should last you at least 10 years and we can't really say there are many, if any, better mattresses at this price range.
While there are benefits to you, there are also benefits to the environment when you shop at Simba. Simba claims that every single delivery is 100% carbon neutral and they aim to be Net Zero by 2030. And if you’re struggling to know what to do with your old mattress – Simba will take it out of your hands to be recycled to reduce landfill waste. However, this does come at an additional charge of £40.
Simba mattresses are made with 100% recycled materials and use 61% less foam. Any excess materials from the manufacturing process are sold on to create flooring and dog beds. So, there really is no waste from their products.
Now, to discuss precisely how we trial our products. After all, how will you be able to trust our opinion on top mattresses if you don't know how we got there? On a basic level, all the products we review go through these tests:
When it comes to the Simba Hybrid Luxe, in particular, these are the tests conducted to gauge its luxe quality:
The Luxe mattress is reassuringly heavy – I mean it does have 11 layers and a depth of 31cm… so the design of two handles on the long sides and two handles on the short sides is exactly what you need from this mattress. When it comes to rotating the mattress every three months, the job is made easier with this design feature. As for the depth of the mattress, it’s deeper than the Essential and the Pro mattress which is definitely noticeable. As soon as I lay down, I felt the additional support and comfort from beneath. It felt as though I was sleeping high up in the clouds – as you should with a luxury choice. So, after purchasing this mattress, it’s worth considering a deep fitted sheet so you know the mattress will be fully covered.
The cover of the mattress is soft to the touch and feels cooling on the skin. But you might be wondering how this differs from Simba’s other mattresses to make it the pricier choice. Well here are the comparisons to their Hybrid Pro Mattress, the previous mattress to this one. Three comfort layers, not two. Up to 5000 micro springs, not 4000. A bamboo-infused wool layer, not just a wool layer. Reduced foam content for a smaller carbon footprint. Well, it’s one percent lower but it all helps. So, I think it’s quite obvious why the luxe is more expensive than the rest. However, the sleep surface, edge support, support core base, sustainability and trial period haven’t changed.
Simba’s mattresses come with a 10-year guarantee so you can expect your mattress to give you a good night’s sleep for many years. If, for some reason, you find the luxury mattress isn’t quite right, then you have a 200-night trial for you to send it back to Simba.
Comfort – tick.
Support – tick.
Springs, foam, breathable bamboo, kinder to the planet, temperature control – tick, tick, tick, tick, tick.
You can really see why it’s their luxe option. But, this does mean it comes with a higher price tag.
Finally, we wanted to wrap up this Simba Hybrid Luxe review by answering some of the most frequently asked questions, mostly regarding the maintenance of the Luxe mattress. Sometimes, all you need is a straightforward answer to a simple question and that's precisely what we want to give you.
Yes. The Aerocoil springs help to contour your body as they are small enough to adapt to every movement. While doing that, they offer support to the most important areas of your body e.g. shoulders and hips. Working together to keep your spine aligned.
Simba Luxe comes with a removable mattress cover that you can safely wash in the washing machine at 30ºC.
This one should last you for a decade without any issues. But even if it fails, you get a 10-year warranty on this Simba mattress, just like you do on all the other ones.
As a Simba Hybrid Mattress, it uses both memory foam and springs which make it a medium firm mattress. A good balance of comfort and support.
