What kind of Mattress is a Koala?

The Koala Mattress is a high-quality, high-performance mattress designed specifically for New Zealanders. It combines a lively and supportive base with a pressure-relieving hybrid layer to relieve pressure from all the right places. The secret to Koala’s success is in our top comfort layer. The Kloudcell comfort layer is unique to our brand and can only be found in the Koala mattress, nowhere else on Planet Earth. The Kloudcell comfort layer combines pressure relief, support, spinal alignment and breathability in the one mattress. We’re certain you won't find this feeling while sleeping on any other mattress. The Kloudcell comfort layer has zero disturbance technology helping you to enjoy an undisturbed sleep.

Designed to be a single firmness, we’ve spent many hours tweaking the Koala’s Mattress specifications to ensure it is universally comfortable for everyone. The Koala Mattress supports the natural posture of your spine, helping to relieve back, shoulder and neck problems. It has also been designed to naturally breathe, so you don’t end up sleeping hot. Beware this is not a conventional mattress, it is Kloudcell comfort and it is the future of bedding.

How much does shipping cost?

Shipping is free to New Zealand, YES FREE...

What weights and sizes can the Koala Mattress handle?

We understand that not all bodies are the same. The Koala mattress has been tested with a 200kg human dummy on one side and a 50kg dummy on the other. The Koala mattress will not bend or sink in the middle, it will distribute the weight evenly.

Where can I try the Koala Mattress?

With our risk-free 120-night trial, you can test the mattress in your own home.

This type of trial isn’t for everyone though, so we’ve partnered with nood, the perfect place for you to experience a koala before you buy it. Check out available stores!

What is the Koala 120 night sleep trial?

We understand it takes more than a few minutes to know if a mattress is right for you. That's why we offer you a 120 night sleep trial. Gone are the days of a rushed buying decision in a fancy showroom with pushy sales staff. Try our mattress for 120 nights and if you don’t fall in love with it, we’ll come collect it and give you a full refund.

Due to the time it takes your body to a adjust to a new mattress, we have a minimum requirement that you must own the mattress for at least 14 days before initiating the return.

Please note the 120 trial is limited to two per household and can not be used to exchange for another size.

Terms & Conditions

What type of bed frame should I use with the Koala Mattress?

Koala Mattresses are compatible with most base options including platform, slats or box spring. You can sleep on a Koala Mattress comfortably just about anywhere!

Do you sell the other furniture items on your website?

All furniture on our website is for visual purposes only. We work with local designers and also get a lot of our items and inspiration from our good mates over at MilkCart; they’re amazing! If you like the look of anything else, reach out to us and we can point you in the right direction.

How long will my mattress take to be back to normal after unpacking?

The Koala Mattress is specially compressed for ease of shipping. Please allow at least 3-5 days for the Mattress to come back to its correct shape and feel (don't worry it can be slept on right away, it will just get better over the coming days). Compression or pre-crushing is actually great for foam. This compression removes any inconsistencies within the foams hardness and density. All foam used in mattresses is pre-crushed, the level of compression within the Koala Mattress reduces the risk of body signatures and drastically increases the foams longevity.

What kind of sheets will fit my Koala Mattress?

Standard New Zealand sized bed sheets will fit the Koala Mattress.

Does the Koala Mattress work on an adjustable bed frame?

Yes, the Koala Mattress works great with most adjustable bed frames. Our specially formulated mattress is extremely flexible and will bend and recline with ease. This won't break your mattress or void your 10-year warranty.

Can I unzip my mattress cover and clean it?

Yes, you sure can! Gone are the days of sleeping on dirty, stained mattress. With the Koala Mattress you can easily unzip your mattress cover and hand wash in warm soapy water. Remember to line dry and treat the cover as you would your favourite dress or shirt.

Why is the Kloudcell Comfort Layer so much better than Latex?

Latex is an old redundant bedding material. Simply put, this technology used in bedding is very outdated. The density of latex makes it unsuitable for southern climates, as it has very poor breathability. Our new Kloudcell comfort Layer is a world-first technology that allows unprecedented ventilation and comfort. With crazy amounts of springiness and unparalleled zero partner disturbance, it truly is the perfect comfort layer for all Kiwis.

What makes the Kloudcell comfort layer so good?

The Kloudcell comfort layer has been specifically designed to provide outstanding support and excellent weight distribution. Regardless of the climate or the season, you’ll get a good quality sleep with a Koala Mattress. The Kloudcell comfort Layer offers great comfort levels for the body throughout the night while allowing for easy movement and repositioning. The world-class technology dissipates heat throughout the night, meaning it feels cool to touch and won’t leave you feeling hot.

What is the Koala Mattress made from?

The Koala mattress contains two unique layers of technologically advanced, modern polyurethane foam.

We use state of the art manufacturing in Australia to produce our unique comfort layers. Each layer has been designed, tested and made in Australia to meet strict environmental and sustainability standards.

All of our comfort layers have the "Good Environmental Choice Label" and are GECA certified. We use industry leading manufacturing processes to ensure best practice in environmental sustainability and quality.

For a breakdown on the qualities each comfort layer provides, please see our mattress page .
