The best Saatva mattress for most people is the Saatva Classic, a luxury innerspring hybrid and our best mattress of the year overall. The Classic is Saatva's flagship mattress designed in your choice of three firmness levels and two heights, meaning it's well-suited to pretty much every type of sleeper and body type. But there's more to Saatva than just one mattress – in fact, there are 11 Saatva mattresses in total, and here we've ranked the best ones for different sleep needs and budgets. 

In this in-depth guide to Saatva's top-rated mattresses we'll talk you through the brand's various hybrid, memory foam and organic beds, as well as specialist models such as the Saatva RX, which has recently been rated as our top bed for back pain. We've been reviewing Saatva mattresses for years, and you can read some of our first-hand accounts below such as our Saatva Classic year-long test and our in-depth look at the brand's Memory Foam Hybrid mattress.

How much do the best Saatva mattresses cost? The brand's luxury adult beds start from $895, while the Saatva Crib costs $355. There are regular Saatva mattress sales and deals each month too, so it's rare to pay MSRP. If a Saatva mattress is normally out of your budget, keep an eye on the forthcoming Presidents' Day mattress sales  this month as we expect prices to drop. 

For now, here are our top recommendations for the best Saatva mattresses for different sleepers and budgets...

The Saatva Classic is a luxury innerspring hybrid designed to suit most body types and sleeping positions. We rate it as the best hybrid mattress in the world, with three levels of firmness to choose from: Soft Plus, Luxury Firm and Firm. (We tested the Luxury Firm Saatva Classic in a 11.5" profile and found it hard to fault.) 

The Classic is made with 14.5-gauge recycled steel Lumbar Zone Pocketed Coils and high-density memory foam, and features a number of design elements to reduce general aches and pains. While the Saatva RX (see below) is the best choice for upper and lower back pain, the Classic is an excellent all-rounder for helping you to sleep comfortably through the night. 

Starting at the top of the mattress, the Euro Top Saatva Classic is covered in breathable organic cotton treated with a botanical infusion called Guardin. This naturally blocks the growth of mold, mildew and bacteria to keep the mattress fresher for longer. You won't find fiberglass in any Saatva beds either, as the brand opts for a plant-based thistle pulp to act as a flame barrier instead.

In the center third of the mattress lies Lumbar Zone Quilting to protect your back, relieve pressure points and ease discomfort; an Active Spinal Wire keeps your spine properly aligned regardless of the position you sleep in. We found the edge support to be very good on the Saatva Classic, and that's down to the placement of foam rails along each edge. This makes it easy to get in and out of the mattress, plus you can spread out and use every inch for sleeping without losing out on support. 

It’s always important to consider everything you need from a mattress – from a firmness level that suits your sleeping position to cooling technology for warm nights – so we suggest popping into one of Saatva's viewing rooms (there are 12 located across America) and taking advantage of Saatva’s year-long sleep trial when buying a mattress online. You'll also have a lifetime warranty plus free mattress installation and removal of your old mattress and foundation. That's superb value for money.

Saatva Classic:$1,295$1,101 at Saatva

Saatva Classic: from $1,295 $1,101 at Saatva
This is the best Saatva mattress for most people and you can choose from three different firmness levels, including the Luxury Firm – our testers loved sleeping on this version and found it greatly reduced lower back pain and general aches and pains. There's up to $418 off the Classic right now, which is a good discount however the MSRP of some sizes has gone up, so your discount doesn't go as far as this month compared to previous months. Luckily, the price of a Saatva Classic queen hasn't change at $1,696, so now is a good time to buy. You'll get a year's free trial, old mattress removal and a lifetime warranty too.

Saatva's best mattress for back pain and joint pain

Specifications

Type: Hybrid innerspring
Materials: Memory foam and coils
Firmness: 4-6
Height: 15"
MSRP: $1,995- $3,795

Reasons to buy

+
Great for back and stomach sleepers
+
Eases back and joint pain
+
Breathable for cooler sleep

Reasons to avoid

-
Too firm for side sleepers

With a firmness level of Supportive Plush, the Saatva RX provides an ultra-soft sleep surface suitable for side and lightweight sleepers. This hybrid’s memory foam and supportive core is designed to provide pressure relief even for those suffering from serious, chronic back and joint conditions such as arthritis. 

In fact, our tester (who suffers from lower back pain) was particularly impressed with the pressure relief along their shoulders, hips, and lower back. Along with helping to maintain healthy spine alignment, its foam is also infused with gel, graphite, and phase change material for a cooler sleep. 

While its cooling materials and plushness make the Saatva RX ideal for hot sleepers and those seeking greater pressure relief, some sleepers may want to avoid it. The mattress may not be firm enough for heavyweight sleepers or those who sleep on their front. 

It's also worth noting that, while designed to provide maximum lumbar support and relieve pressure points, those with normal aches should probably try a mattress with adjustable firmness levels – such as the Saatva Classic above. Also, while the Saatva RX’s cushioning is made to reduce motion transfer, our reviewer found it to be quite responsive, which may be an issue for couples sharing a bed. 

Saatva RX mattress:$1,995$1,695 at Saatva

If you want the best Saatva mattress for back pain look no further than the Saatva RX. Our lead tester for this specialist bed suffers from chronic back pain and mild scoliosis and found that the RX greatly reduced her back and joint pain from the first night. It's a tall mattress though, so keep that in mind if you're on the shorter side. Right now there's up to $569 off the Saatva RX, with a queen down to $2801. That's nearly $195 cheaper than last month, so don't miss this saving if you want the RX for a great price.

Height: 12"
MSRP: $1,495 - $2,595

Too firm for lighter bodies

If you want the best naturally cooling Saatva mattress, look no further than the Latex Hybrid, a hand-tufted bed made from natural Talalay latex. This is one of the best cooling mattress materials you'll come across, and it's superb for relieving pressure on major impact points (shoulders, hips, back and knees) during sleep. In addition, latex is very hard-wearing and durable, which is why latex mattresses – although seemingly expensive at first glance – are excellent value for money because they are a great longterm investment in better sleep.

Latex offers a similar body-contouring feel as you'd get with the best memory foam mattresses, yet it's more natural and far more breathable due to its open-cell construction. Combined with a layer of individually-wrapped recycled steel coils plus a moisture-wicking New Zealand wool cover, the Saatva Latex Hybrid mattress will provide significant relief from overheating and night sweats. The Saatva Latex Hybrid is also a great option for allergy sufferers since latex is naturally hypoallergenic, antimicrobial, and free of harmful chemicals. 

There are five layers to the Saatva Latex Hybrid, starting with the hand-tufted and cushioned Euro top for instant comfort. Like the cover on the Saatva Classic, this one is made from breathable cotton and is also treated to ward off bacteria, mildew and mold. New Zealand wool wicks away sweat and regulates your body temperature for more comfortable sleep, with a 3" layer of 5-zoned latex adds a little bounce, a lot of pressure relief, and a better supported lower back.

For back sleepers who run hot but have a smaller budget, take a look at our Saatva Graphite Mattress Topper review.

Saatva Latex Hybrid:$1,495$1,271 at Saatva

Saatva Latex Hybrid: from $1,495 $1,271 at Saatva
The Latex Hybrid is the best Saatva mattress for hot sleepers who want a good quality organic bed. Natural latex is cooling as well as being an excellent choice for relieving pressure points and easing aching joints during sleep. It's up to $389 off this month, with a queen reduced to $1,866 (was $2,195), which is around $30 cheaper than last month. You'll get free old mattress removal with this one, plus a year's sleep trial.

MSRP: $1,595 - $3,390

Reasons to buy

Deep pressure relief

Reasons to avoid

Retains some heat

Saatva's take on a memory foam mattress is as luxurious as you'd expect, with hefty 5lb memory foam brought in to offer the ultimate in body-hugging comfort and contouring. This is the one to buy if you like to sink into your mattress a little, feeling it contour slowly to your curves so that you sleep almost cradled throughout the night. It's a much better option than the Classic or RX if you have hip pain, and we especially recommend it if you sleep on your side. 

There's also gel-infused foam here to aid breathability during sleep, so if you normally run a mile at the thought of memory foam (which can retain heat), then you'll have less worries here. We aren't saying it dissipates all heat because it doesn't, but it does sleep cooler than many other all-foam beds we've tested.

You can buy the Saatva Loom & Leaf mattress in either a relaxed firm (slightly less firm than medium-firm) or firm. Combi sleepers and side sleepers should try the relaxed firm option, while heavier people and stomach sleepers should opt for firm to get the support they need to help them remain on top of the mattress a little more.

The Loom & Leaf also boasts impressive motion absorption, making it an ideal choice for couples who don’t want to be disturbed by their partner's movements. Our only annoyance with the Saatva Classic is the small amount of motion transfer, so if you want a bed that pretty much cancels that out, choose the Saatva Loom & Leaf instead. It comes on a year's sleep trial, with a lifetime warranty and free old mattress removal and new bed installation.

Saatva Loom & Leaf: $1,595 $1,356 at Saatva

Saatva Loom & Leaf: from $1,595 $1,356 at Saatva
There are always Saatva mattress sales on the Loom & Leaf, with the average saving being around $350 on the queen size bed. That normally takes the price of a queen down to $2,036, which places the Loom & Leaf firmly in the luxury memory foam mattress bracket. This is a sumptuous bed though, and an ideal choice for side sleepers with hip pain.

The best Saatva mattress for indecisive sleepers

Specifications

Height: 10"
MSRP: $1,795 - $3,990

Reasons to buy

+
Dual-sided design
+
Breathable for cooler sleep
+
Great lumbar support

Reasons to avoid

-
Very heavy

The all-natural Zenhaven Natural Latex Mattress has a dual-side design so sleepers can change the feel of their bed on a whim to suit their needs at the moment. The Gentle Firm side offers loads of support for stomach and back sleepers, particularly along their hips and lumbar. 

The Luxury Plush side features ample pressure relief for side sleepers who want a plush mattress to sink into. The Zenhaven is made from Dunlop latex, a denser (but more durable) option than Talalay. It's a heavy mattress, though, weighing between 80lbs and 165lbs, so make sure you have help when flipping it over.

Reasons to avoid

Very expensive

The Saatva Solaire Adjustable Mattress is the brand's most expensive model, featuring an impressive 50 precise firmness levels on either side of the bed so you and your partner can enjoy personalized comfort without compromise. 

It’s technically considered an airbed since it has vulcanized air chambers, along with layers of Talalay latex and gel-infused memory foam for a cool, contouring effect. Everything is controlled via remote, making it a convenient option for those who prefer not to fiddle with apps that typically accompany smart mattresses.

Reasons to avoid

Short people may find it too tall

The Saatva HD is designed to support sleepers between 300lbs and 500lbs. With a total weight capacity of up to 1,000lbs — twice the average for a mattress — it's the best mattress for heavy people in the Saatva range. 

Its sturdiness stems from a layer of tempered 12.5-gauge steel open coils (25% stronger than the industry standard) plus reinforced foam edges to prevent sagging and make it easier to get in and out of bed. 

There’s also a five-zone Talalay latex layer with targeted lumbar support, along with a 5lb-layer of contouring memory foam to help improve circulation and relieve pressure points.

Warmer than other Saatvas

The Saatva Memory Foam Hybrid was released late last year as an affordable alternative to the Saatva Classic (it costs between $70 and $500 less, depending on the Saatva mattress deal available at the time). Available in one firmness level (medium) and height profile (11.5”), it aims to provide a more contoured feel while maintaining a similar level of responsiveness to Saatva’s popular flagship model. 

The Saatva Memory Foam Hybrid features 8-inch pocketed comfort coils, a gel-infused lumbar crown, and a 1.5-inch layer of memory foam with air pockets for a keen balance of cooling and support that should suit most lightweight to average sleepers.
