Koala mattress vs Tempur mattress review

At a glance, our high quality Koala mattress in a box can be easily bought online, is quickly delivered and costs a third of a Tempur. But, when looking at the overall comparison, what is better, Koala or Tempur?

Affordability
We believe a good night’s sleep should not be the privilege of a few. Koala was founded to make high quality Australian mattresses that are easy to buy and accessible to everyone.

We can do that because we sell our beds and bed frames directly to you, without unnecessary intermediaries, so we can use the highest quality materials and the most advanced sleep technology without charging exorbitant prices or creating fake “Sales”.

We think we have found the sweet spot between quality and price and sleep tight knowing that more than 20,000 other Australians can do so too.

Zero disturbance technology
At Koala, we take good sleep very seriously and want to make sure all our customers get uncompromised sleep, every night; this is why we engineered our mattresses with Zero disturbance technology.

No matter how much tossing and turning a person does through the night, their sleeping partner will not notice a thing because our mattresses channel this movement out, like magic. No more long coffee days because of a restless partner.

Warranty
We take our impact on the planet very seriously and believe in making products that last so we can reduce waste. This is why you can be sure you will sleep soundly on a Koala mattress for a minimum of 10 years.

Construction type
Our mattresses are uniquely designed using our exclusive Kloudcell open-cell foam technology which we engineered to give you the most restful sleep.

This comfort layer of foam is breathable, so you never get too hot, and has a luxurious bounce so you don’t have the dreaded sink-in feeling of other foam mattresses.

If that wasn’t enough, we top Kloudcell with a 16cm layer of ultra-resilient Ecofoam which provides the firmer support you need.

Kloudcell and Ecofoam are made of high-grade Australian foam and work together to provide the right level of firmness, not too soft, and not too firm.

Our mattress is good for everyone, whether you are looking for a bed to sleep on your side or a bed for backs. No more time wasted sleeping on store beds to figure out which firmness and comfort level is the right one for you, our technology has simplified that decision for you.

Once you sleep on a Koala, you will finally know what a good night’s sleep is and understand why our customers think Koala is the best mattress in Australia.

Weight
Our Australian engineered foam is not just our secret agent of sleep, it also helps us make great mattresses more accessible to everyone.

Our Koala queen size mattress weighs just 23kg, and this means that almost everyone can set-up our mattress in a box in their bedroom within minutes and without any help.

Washable mattress cover
Because we know you will be using our mattresses for over a decade, we designed them with a removable and washable mattress cover. Unzip it and throw it in the wash for that always-fresh feeling.

Trial period
But don’t take our word for it, we obviously love our mattresses and will happily let you test them for 120 nights, that is 4 full months of wonderful sleep so you can feel Koala’s magical restful sleep and 20 nights longer than Tempur.

Delivery
We don’t want you to wait around for our delivery service so we have designed our very own intelligent system, Gumleaf, to provide the quickest delivery service in Australia. In metro areas, your Koala will be at your doorstep in just 4 hours.

You don’t have to wait for days and then spend a whole day at home to receive your expensive Tempur when you can sleep on a perfect fit bed from Koala tonight.

Set-up time
Buying a mattress does not have to be a complicated experience with confusing mattress specifications and lengthy set-up processes that require a team; order a Koala, receive it in 4h and get it ready in minutes all by yourself.

Our bed in a box comes vacuum packed and is like magic, just unpack the box, unroll the mattress and in just 4 seconds your Koala mattress will be ready.

Do good
But we don’t just make great mattresses, we also want to do good in every aspect of Koala.

Our materials are ethically and locally sourced and we work with SEDEX, a global non-profit to certify that all our partners follow our same principles.

We are advocates for the planet and have managed to bring our emissions close to zero during our production process. Koala is a B Corp and a member of the 1% for the Planet and in the main urban centres, we collaborate with Soft Landing to recycle your old mattress.

To honor our name, we have partnered with the World Wildlife Fund to adopt a koala on your behalf for every mattress you purchase.
