Nectar Mattresses vs Saatva: Side by Side Comparison

NECTAR is a Better Mattress For a Better Price:
365 Night Trial · Forever Warranty · Free Shipping & Returns


It’s no surprise that NASA’s memory foam, invented to ease aches and pains, while fully aligning and supporting the spine of Astronaut’s would become the go-to mattress material. NECTAR memory foam mattresses provide additional inches of memory foam, providing additional comfort and support. When third party reviewers did a side by side comparison of NECTAR with Saatva, NECTAR dominated in every segment from price to comfort to warranty and trial period. “My engineering team found this to be the best mattress for isolating motion of all the mattresses they have tested. The Nectar mattress [has] a generous trial period. Again, it’s a 365 night trial period which so far is unheard of in the industry.”

Nectar’s 11-inch high mattress gives it an extra boost of comfort and support that towers over Saatva’s mere 9.5”. While both have warranty options, NECTAR is a lifetime, which dominates Saatva’s 10-year warranty, since we believe our mattresses should be the last ones you buy. We also believe in a full 365 night sleep trial, whereas Saatva only gives you 100 nights. Finally, NECTAR mattress will give you over $200 savings for an even better mattress. It’s no wonder the pros vote NECTAR as the clear winner over Saatva.

As luxury memory foam mattresses can often cost thousands of dollars in mattress stores, the bed in the box mattresses are popular options for less than $1000. NECTAR’s queen mattress is CONSIDERABLY less, at $795.00 vs. Saatva which is practically 1k, ($999.99). That’s over $200 savings, for an even better mattress when you purchase a NECTAR. How is it possible that our mattress priced less for a more premium bed? Because we are an employee-owned company, we are able to keep our operating costs low and pass on the savings to you!

365 Days vs. 100 Nights

NECTAR offers 365 day trial period, with free shipping and returns. Our white glove drop off and pickup service makes it hassle free for you to try the mattress on your terms, for up to a full year! Saatva mattress only gives you 100 days to try the mattress. “This more than triples the length of many of the online mattress company trial periods,” says “With the Nectar mattress you get to sleep on it for a whole year before deciding if it’s right for you. That means you get to experience through all four seasons.”


Lifetime vs. 10 years

NECTAR offers a lifetime warranty on our beds. That’s because we are confident our beds are built to last. Our warranty offer dominates Saatva’s 10-year warranty, since we believe our mattresses should be the only one you have to buy. We think if you truly believe in your product, you will guarantee it for life. Saatva’s mattress only lasts 8-10 years, per their website information. This means that you should bet on having to purchase a new mattress then … not so with NECTAR, which is why we say that once you buy a NECTAR, you won’t have to buy another mattress again.


11” vs. 9.5”

Nectar’s 11-inch high mattress gives it an extra boost of comfort and support that towers over Saatva’s mere 9.5”. That 1.5” makes a world of difference, and don’t take our word for it. According to, “NECTAR mattress is a totally integrated 11″ gel memory foam mattress which exceeds the industry standard of 10″, and 4 layers exceeds the industry standard of 3 layers.” It allows the mattress to be right in the middle of firm and soft, allowing it to be a comfortable mattress for the average sleeper. It is just firm enough that if you have back pain, you will be supported, but also soft enough that if you are a side sleeper you won’t get sore hips.


4 layers vs. 3 layers.

Not all memory foams are created equal. Unlike the traditional spring mattress, the NECTAR memory foam mattress is just bendable enough to allow it to be compacted into a box that can be easily delivered, but not so bendable that it doesn’t hold it’s firmness and support. Comfort is a personal choice, as most people want both soft and firm, bouncy and stable, supportive and supple. While both NECTAR and Saatva claim to have the best memory foam, NECTAR has 4 layers of foam, whereas Saatva only as 3.


4” Cooling gel foam layer vs. ventilation

If you sleep hot, then NECTAR is definitely for you. “The NECTAR mattress just feels great,” says “It has dense top foam layer along with a phase change ticking that has cooling gel quilted into it. The Nectar mattress isn’t just another typical foam mattress, it has some significant advantages over the competitors.” Saatva mattresses claim to offer ventilation, but NECTAR goes one step further and has built in a cooling system right into our mattress. We offer special breathing airflow technology and cooling fabric. says, “There is a quilted 4lb. cooling gel foam layer which is something unique to the Nectar mattress. It give the mattress a unique feel and provides great pressure relief.”


90 NECTAR vs. 87 Saatva

Our unique top layers give NECTAR the perfect amount of softness. This is achieved through our 1″ Top Comfort Layer (The cover is made of Tencel fiber which is a soft and very breathable material. It sleeps cooler than cotton and helps wick away moisture.) Followed by a 1″ Support Layer, Underneath that is a quilted 4lb. cooling gel foam layer which is something unique to the Nectar mattress. It give the mattress a unique feel and provides great pressure relief. Then comes a 3″ Transition Layer followed by our Hi Core Memory Foam. This is a dense foam that also is great for pressure relief. The combination of these top levels give NECTAR the Softness we are loved for. Saatva mattresses are rated 6/10 on the firmness level, which can be too firm for side sleepers, whereas NECTAR falls right in the middle at a 5, which we believe is the perfect amount.


97 NECTAR vs 92 Saatva

NECTAR is just the right amount of firmness to support your back, and also the right amount of softness so that you will not feel if your partner is kicking or tossing on the other side of the bed. We offer a 6″ Foundation Layer – This is a standard base layer similar to most other memory foam mattresses but is essential for providing good support and making sure that motion transfer doesn’t occur. Nectar was rated 97 for motion transfer, almost 100% by Saatva was rated at 92, which is due to their having only a 9.5” mattress that cannot absorb the same amount of motion.
