Zenhaven is another brand by the factory-direct Saatva brand, which has done very well with their Saatva bed. Zenhaven is a latex only mattress and brands itself as an all natural, eco-friendly alternative to other foam mattresses. The pricepoint is in line with other all-latex factory-direct varieties, but even with its sustainable practices, it is so much more affordable than major retailer varieties of the same quality.
Zenhaven is Saatva's latex foam mattress line. They emphasize their all-natural latex ingredients and eco-conscious materials. Here is what makes up their mattress from top to bottom.
Layer 1: Organic cotton cover provides soft and natural comfort on the top layer.
Layer 2: A thin layer of wool that acts as a flame retardent (without the use of chemicals).
Layer 3: The first of the support layers is a perforated latex that is firmer in some spots, but less firm in others providing spinal alignment based on your body's position.
Layer 4: The latex support cores are also aerated to facilitate air flow and is made of 100% Talalay latex for a healthier sleep.
Most agree that Zenhaven provides a comfortable night sleep though there are disputes about the firmness specs.
Zenhaven offers two firmness options: luxury plush and gentle firm. These are not two different mattresses, but are two different configurations (one side vs the other). Some have complained that it is difficult to decipher which side is which. Others have complained that the soft side is not soft enough and the firm side is not firm enough.
The Zenhaven gentle firm side is rated medium firm and should provide good spine alignment for most back pain relief.
Because of the aerated latex, Zenhaven's mattresses should sleep cool for most people. Some extremely warm sleepers may still experience heat retention.
The Zenhaven mattress is perfect for folks that are looking for a comfortable latex alternative to memory foam and want a medium feel.
I used to have a firm latex mattress, and when I got the new Zenhaven it was quite a bit softer than my older mattress. I was worried by how my body would react. I've had the mattress for a few months now and so far, no problems at all. I love this mattress.View More Reviews
I absolutely love my zenhaven.
I was worried that it was going to be too firm, but it is perfect for me!
I've had chronic pain and really needed a soft mattress. This mattress is not soft. If you have pain, do not get this bed.
My husband wakes regularly at night, but I never hear him on this mattress. I am sleeping so much better just because of that alone!
I was relieved when this bed worked with my adjustable base. It really has been the perfect thing for my back.
This is the fifth mattress that I've tried in the last year. We are so happy that we finally found what we were looking for with the Zenhaven. This is exactly what we needed.
We tried lots of mattresses but finally settled on the Zenhaven after we decided against breathing in nasty foam chemicals. The mattress was a bit too firm to my liking so we had to get an extra $150 soft topper that has made things all better.
We tried lots of mattresses but finally settled on the Zenhaven after we decided against breathing in nasty foam chemicals. The mattress (Luxury Plush) was still a bit too firm to my liking so we had to get an extra $150 soft topper that has made things all better.
This mattress was way too firm. Customer service sent us a new topper that helped somewhat, but I am still going to have to get another topper too.
This mattress is a bit on the hefty side so it makes things like sheet changes difficult, but besides that I love the mattress. I need the softer side because of a recent surgery and haven't experienced any major issues.
I've suffered from nasal allergies for years. To my complete surprise and happiness, it has vanished after I got this bed. I am not sure if it was just the dust mites in my old mattress or something else, but I love that this is all natural and hypoallergenic.
This mattress has been very difficult to adjust to. I am a side sleeper and I find it difficult to adjust. I still have some neck and back pain that hasn't gotten better from this mattress.
This mattress has it all -- no off gassing and still cool even though I am warm by nature. I can't complain at all!
