Who is the Simba Premium mattress for?

If you’re the one that loves the cradling comfort of a premium memory foam mattress, then look no further – this is the mattress for you.

Simba Premium Seven Zoned Foam Mattress is an Amazon and eBay exclusive model by Simba Sleep, and it is a medium-firm, memory foam mattress that seems to be aiming at all sleepers, even though side sleepers have praised it most. 

This Simba mattress comes with 7 zones, hypoallergenic materials as well as chemical-free structure that ensures your sleep is not influenced by any of the toxic elements. 

Therefore, the price tag is a bit higher but it completely justifies its higher price due to the superb comfort, support and the luxury design and overall feel. 

What do we use this product for?

One of the main advantages of memory foam mattresses is their ability to relieve pressure around the core areas, such as hips and shoulders. So, we guess you could say that aside from getting a good night's sleep, you could use Simba Premium Seven Zoned Foam Mattress to relieve pressure and take some pain away.

Features you should know about the Simba Premium mattress

To better understand what makes Simba Premium Seven Zoned Foam Mattress special and why you should get this mattress instead of some other memory foam one, we have to take a deep dive into some of its features and characteristics.

7-Zones of support & pressure relief

The main feature of Simba Premium Seven Zoned Foam Mattress is the zoned high-definition memory foam base.

Zoned support is something we always like to see in a memory foam mattress. In this case, we have these ergonomic pressure zones to support and evenly distribute your body weight and offer pressure relief, seeing how the mattress is intentionally softer and firmer in certain areas.

With Simba Premium, you have 7 of these zones, all of them strategically placed to offer comfort and pressure release around hips, shoulders and joints. They're equally distributed through the mattress, so no matter how you orient it – you'll still make the most of it.

HD foam

As we’ve said, the zoned base isn’t your everyday foam. The zoned base of Simba Premium is made from high-definition foam, which is pretty much just another name for a high-density foam.

What this means is you'll get more than enough support and firmness out of it than if you were to use regular memory foam. Also, due to its denser nature – this high definition foam is also more resilient, durable and long-lasting, but isn't as good when it comes to airflow or breathability.

Soft & hypoallergenic knitted cover with Oeko-TEX Standard

Simba Premium is a proud owner of the beautifully knitted, soft, hypoallergenic cover. The cover is made from high-quality polyester and is wonderfully crafted and designed to offer a soft, pleasant sleeping surface while also being anti-allergenic and keeping the dust-mites at bay.

To prove even further how great it is, the cover comes with an Oeko-TEX certification, meaning it's completely free of all potentially hazardous chemicals and is safe to be used by humans.

Motion Transfer-free

Underneath the premium, luxury cover and on top of the HD base, we have the Simbatex comfort layer.

This patented open-cell technology from Simba makes their mattresses feel exceptionally good. The Simbatex comfort layer will gently contour around your body, perfectly following your curves, all while being super comfortable.

Furthermore, the Simbatex comfort layer will help isolate motion, helping both you and your sleeping partner sleep without any disturbances during the night. Additionally, the open-cell structure of the Simbatex layer will also prevent overheating and will regulate temperature significantly better than regular memory foam.

Review of the Simba Premium mattress

Now, let’s check out our review of Simba Premium Seven Zoned Foam mattress.

This Amazon/eBay exclusive mattress from Simba has pleasantly surprised us. Compared to the main lineup of Simba Hybrids, this mattress could be even considered affordable. Now, this is by no means a budget-friendly option, but it isn’t as expensive as Simba’s products are known to be.

Overall, the biggest advantage of the Simba Premium Seven Zoned Foam Mattress must be comfort. Simba Premium manages to hit that sweet spot between firmness and softness, which is mostly accomplished by mixing in the open-cell and HD memory foam.

The mattress is supportive enough that pretty much anyone would be able to use it, although we must say that if you’re a bit on the heavier side and are sleeping on your stomach – you might want to look further. However, you could just try it out thanks to the 100-night trial period, and see whether it works for you or not.

The mattress is also hypoallergenic, which is a big deal. The cover is great, soft and pleasant to the touch, but once again – we have a non-removable cover from Simba. Seeing how you won’t be able to easily clean it, in case you get it dirty, we suggest using a mattress protector with this one.

The only thing that kind of worries us is the durability and longevity of Simba Premium Seven Zoned Foam mattress. You only get a 3-year guarantee with this Simba mattress, and if we pair that up with the results from our roller test – we can’t really say you’re going to be sleeping on this one for a long time.

KEY FEATURES:

  • Type: Memory foam
  • Firmness: 6/10
  • Mattress depth: 19 cm
  • Size: UK Single, UK Double, UK King, UK Super King.

Check the alternatives to the Simba Premium mattress

If you’d rather sleep on a different mattress – we’ve got you covered. Here is the alternative option if Simba Premium Seven Zoned Foam Mattress doesn’t seem to be the mattress for you.

Dormeo Fresh Memory Foam Mattress

If you like what the Simba Premium Mattress has to offer but would like a slightly different model, we strongly suggest giving the Dormeo Fresh Memory Foam Mattress a look!

This is because, for the most part, it has all of the same pros as the Simba Premium. It has a cover embewed with silver strands in order to make it hypoallergeic and anti-bacterial. And it also comes with tempered memory foam that's more breathable than your standard foam models.

On top of that, it has a decent support layer and comes with an amazing warranty of 15-years! That being said, it also comes with some of the same downsides as the Simba Premium, with a non-removable cover and slight overheating for hot sleepers. Also, keep in mind that if you're getting a King size, it will be slightly more expensive than the Simba Premium

Consider the Simba Hybrid Pillow if you are buying the Simba Premium mattress

You need a memory foam pillow with a memory foam mattress – that’s just the way it is.

Simba Hybrid pillow is a memory foam pillow reimagined. It’s filled with tiny memory foam cubes, called Nanocubes.

These open-cell foam cubes are not only soft and pleasant to lie on, but they're also quite durable and breathable. In addition, these in combination with Stratos technology offer the fantastic cooling ability.

Pair that up with the ingenious Simba's Stratos-enriched cover, and you'll get a perfect, comfortable and supportive pillow for back and side sleepers.

Do check our in-depth Simba Hybrid pillow review to learn more.

What makes this product better than some other similar ones?

If we were to compare Simba Premium to some other similar memory foam mattresses, we'd have to say that what Simba Premium does better than most of them is pressure relief. We've touched on it earlier, but the 7-zone HD foam base is really excellent at relieving pressure from core areas, making this one perfect for side sleepers. It is currently, one of the best mattresses within the United Kingdom, despite the higher price tag.

How did we test the product?

an image of front side of simba premium mattress

The first thing we did was hop on Amazon to order this product. Keep in mind, the Simba Premium is Amazon and eBay exclusive, and you can't get it anywhere else – not even on Simba Sleep website.

As is almost always the case, the delivery was free and fast, so in only a few days – the mattress was is in our office, ready to be inspected, tested and reviewed.

The mattress can be rolled up and packed in a box, so there were no damages to it whatsoever. We've rolled it out and left it to fully expand and vent out for 24 hours, and once that was done – we began our tests.

All of us got to spend ten nights sleeping on the Simba Premium. During that time, we’ve tried to simulate as many scenarios as possible. We’ve slept in a cool room, a hot room, on a slatted bed base, on a firm base, in pairs and alone and so on.

What we've learned is that Simba Premium Seven Zoned Foam Mattress is comfortable and pleasant to sleep on. It's going to keep you properly supported, while being refreshingly pleasing around the hips and shoulders, at the same time.

It wasn’t the coolest mattress we’ve slept on, but compared to some other memory foam mattresses – it was great.

Unfortunately, when it came to durability, the mattress didn’t perform all that well. You’re probably looking at five years at best with this one, so you might want to look into getting a topper or a good mattress protector to add on top of this thing.

All in all, Simba Premium Seven Zoned Foam Mattress has proven to be a solid mattress, with only a few drawbacks. While it is perfect for side sleepers, all other sleeping positions could use it as well.

Conclusion

Overall, this mattress is likely going to be ideal for some sleepers. Namely, if you love memory foam mattresses but wish they had a bit more support, this could be an excellent choice! But now that you've read our Simba Premium Mattress review, what do you think? Is it going to be your next mattress? Feel free to tell us in the comments!
