NECTAR mattress introduction

The world needs people to be at the top of their game, alert, energized and ready for each day.  This is only possible with a night of very good sleep.   Never before have sleep scientists realized and communicated so clearly the critical importance of proper rest and the contribution provided by the right sleep surface.

The average person needs at least seven hours and for a child, nine to even twelve hours of quality, uninterrupted sleep is recommended.  Nothing is more important in achieving this than the right bed, constructed of quality, non-allergenic, and healthy sleeping materials,  crafted to provide the medically correct support. Impressed by a premium mattress we recently tested, we have chosen to share our review of NECTAR’s mattress, which is one of the stronger performing mattresses in the history of our testing and reviews(Rank#1 in top 10 mattress reviews list).

NECTAR mattresses have been known across Europe and in other global markets and last year began selling in the United States. The NECTAR has commanded unique respect and endorsements in a short period of time.

NECTAR also provides some of the most revolutionary practices we have observed in their support of an extended trial period (365 night), unusually long warranty period (lifetime) and companies focus on customer satisfaction, which includes replacing the removable premium mattress cover or replacing any NECTAR which shows any form of mold or bed bug activity anytime during its life of use.

The bed possesses some peculiar aspects, such as being  quite firm, yet preserving a very soft and cozy top layer feel.  The use of very premium medical grade and hypoallergenic foams has made NECTAR well recognized for their award winning mattress.


NECTAR mattress is a totally integrated 11″ gel memory foam mattress(industry standard is 10″) and 4 layers (industry standard is 3 layers).

structure of Nectar mattress

Top Cover

NECTAR’s cover is Tencel and long staple cotton, fully removable, quilted and embroidered, woven and prepared with a healthy aloe based cooling layer to assist air wicking. On top of this, this layer has an additional cotton fabric that is long staple in nature. The main purpose for the said layer is the fact that it ensures that there is free and conducive free aeration and circulation so that the conditions that you are sleeping under are very conducive for the owner. The fabric also has some resistive aspects that ensure that the mattress is bedbug free. The company itself will always ensure that you have the perfect and best attire to change if you ever need to change the covers. As a result they are just a phone call away in case of the service said above.

First Layer(Quilted gel memory foam)

The first layer of NECTAR mattress is 1″ quilted gel foam. This is one of the most important attributes that set aside this mattress from most of the others that are in the market. Most companies tend to exclude quilting while building their mattresses since, the process takes up a lot of time, added expense and man power. The process will involve the sewing together of various types of materials to form a thicker and also softer layer. This layer assists in softening and cooling the top layer by creating extra loft and top layer breathability.

Second layer

The second layer is 1″ semi open lush foam, it’s hard to produce and mostly for medical uses, this gel foam can absorbs and distribute heat away from the sleeper, and easily recovers to the original state unlike lower quality gel foam which feels cool at first, but will heat up after deep sleep.  NECTAR also uses a semiopen cell technology in this layer which creates air circulation .

Third layer

The third layer is 3″ adaptive Hi Core memory foam. This is one of those layers that is unique to NECTAR. The main thing that makes this layer miss in many other mattresses that are available in the market is the fact that most enginerr using two layers only for cost savings and that Hi Core foams are much more supportive than standard compression foams.  The weight of this layer creates a higher cost for shipping, which is paid by NECTAR in full, and due to these factors, most companies tend to overlook a third layer or one adding dense material weight and cost. This layer tends to take the fact that if you sleep there are those places that you will apply more pressure than others. Hi Core ensures a sleeper does not sink in to the bed. The main purpose of this layer is provide contouring and support while combating sinkage.

Fourth layer

The last and final layer is a 6″ breathable super premium channeled base layer. The base of the mattress is the foundation which underpins quality and NECTAR uses a 2.2 ILD weight foam in this layer, which is denser than most other base layers.  The NECTAR base also channels air to refresh NECTAR’s top layers and cool the mattress by circulating away warmth.  No matter the bed size or sleeping position, this mattress will always ensure that you have one of the best places to lay your head at all times.

Bed Frames

This mattress is not limited to the type of bed frame and can fit in most of the frames commercially available.  The main bed frames that most tend to use for the bed are box spring, traditional bed frames, platform beds and the ordinary floor.

Comfort and Firmness scale

NECTAR mattress is designed to fit most sleepers (Back, side and stomach). We would rated it 6.5-7/10 (if 10 is hardest) for the firmness level. But this is very personal, you’d better have a try yourself, for me, it feels softer than Tuft&Needle, more comfortable than Casper, and similar to Leesa mattress and Dromma bed, albeit with the added quilted top layer that is very comfortable.

Coupon for NECTAR mattress

In terms of the cash, the NECTAR’s vendors have a very flexible system that they expect the customer to pay through. They have PayPal that is an online platform and take all major credit and also debit cards.  Additionally, NECTAR offers a fairly unique No Interest and No Credit Check Required Installment Financing Plan available automatically at checkout.

NECTAR provides $100 extra off for readers of getbestmattress.com. You can click here to access official site and input promo code”GBM100” to check out.

Shipment, warranty and trial time.

The shipment process is excellent and FREE, with shipping by FEDEX Ground right to the front door of your house. They also offer optional  services to unwrap your mattress after the shipment and also if you have no room to store the mattress that you intend to replace, you may give it to the people that supply the mattress and they will leave with it. The services for the delivery and also any returns is absolutely free and as a result it makes it easier to buy the mattress.  NECTAR offers a very powerful lifetime warranty they term The FOREVER Warranty.

NECTAR provided an extra “white glove service”, set up new mattress for $100 and remove old mattress for $39 , but this is optional,  you can install by yourself. Only a fewer mattress companies provided this service and all of them charge for this.

Who is suitable for NECTAR mattress

  • Any sleeper who wants a cooling and comfortable high quality memory foam mattress. NECTAR uses two kinds of gel foam to ensure cool sleep all night, and not just the first fewer hours.
  • Sleepers who want a longer free trial period. NECTAR mattress provides an unbelievable 365 nights free trial, while we know the industry standard is 100 nights or less. You can return it for free anytime within this period.
  • Those who want a longer warranty. NECTAR mattress provides an unbelievable forever warranty.  One other mattress company did this before, most of them provided 10 years warranty. They are very confident with their product.
  • Those who want a thicker mattress with a limited budget. NECTAR mattress is totally 11″ high, with special 4 layer structure. Most of  NECTAR’s peers only produce a 10″ mattress.
  • Customers who want an all in one mattress, most customers don’t really know what they need, a firm mattress or a softer mattress? NECTAR is neither soft nor firm, can adapt to any kinds of sleepers and any kinds of sleeping positions.
  • Customers who  may wish to change the cover, you can do spot clean or dry clean, and if you wish, you can give a call to NECTAR sleep, they will exchange a new mattress cover for free, 5 star service.
  • Sleepers who do not live in US. Most online mattress only support shipping within US, but NECTAR mattress did better, they support international shipping, no matter you live in Canada, Europe or even Asia, the shipping fee outside of the US is generally no more than $100. Shipment and return is free within the US.
  • Buyers who want to save money, NECTAR is an awesome mattress, with so many impressive features, and you can even save $100 to get it with our discount code “GBM100”, I can’t think of an excuse why you shouldn’t give it a try?
Many readers contacted with us and asked Nectar vs Leesa, who is better? That’s hard to answer, but remember, if you want a memory foam mattress with low motion transfer and hug feelings, NECTAR is a better choice. On the other side, if you want a push back feeling, just like latex, Leesa is a better choice. If we just talk about money and value, you can save more than $100 with NECTAR.

We ranked NECTAR as #1 in our top 3 best mattress under $1,000. This is a really very good mattress.  Please don’t hesitate to leave a comment or let us know your thoughts. We really appreciate for that.

    I recently purchased a Nectar thanks to the revie and am very impressed by the service. The service team contacted me a number of times by email and phone to confirm details of the order and check on our experience. The mattress itself is unique and is very comfortable. I understand why they call it the most comfortable bed on the website. The nectar is a fully thick 11″ mattress, so larger and more substantial than others we looked at. I like the lifetime warranty and the quilted cover particularly.

      Thanks Susan for sharing your experience with us. I’m glad that you finnaly got what you need. You must did lots of research before buying, there are not too much resources for Nectar mattress compared with other famous online mattress companies like Leesa and Casper. Cheers!

    Hi Chris, thank you for your helpful reviews.

    I think I’ve narrowed it down to either the Nectar or the Hyphen. Since you are the only website I’ve found that has actually reviewed both, I was wondering what you would recommend. I’m a side sleeper who likes cushioning but doesn’t like being swallowed up in a mattress, and I’d like to be able to roll over without having to dig myself out of a hole. Also, the cooling properties of the mattress is important. In your experience regarding my preferences, did one mattress perform better than the other, or are they both even? Also, how would you rate the firmness of these two mattresses in relation to each other?

    This will be my first foam mattress, and I appreciate your feedback.

      Hey Therese, thanks for dropping by, if I were you I would choose NECTAR without any doubt, especially you are a side sleeper, NECTAR is thicker, has better warranty and free trial, and now they even provided $125 coupon for X-mas sale, I don’t know why you has any hesitation, if you prefer push back foam, then Leesa is another good choice, although it’s more expensive.

      For the firmness scale, it’s very subjective, I would rate NECTAR 5.5-6.5/10, and HYPHEN 6-7/10, hope this help.

    Hey Chris– I’m stuck here. Between the Nectar and Ghostbed…..which do you prefer? :[ Hard to decide between the two!

      Hey buddy, any of them you won’t regret.
      NECTAR sleeps more comfortable than Ghostbed, but Ghostbed is more bouncy.Both of them sleep cool.
      If you prefer hug feelings choose NECTAR, if you prefer push back feelings, choose Ghostbed.
      With NECTAR, you can get limited time $125 OFF, with Ghostbed, you can get free pillows. Good luck buddy and Merry X-Mas.

    Hi, you didn’t mention the weight of the premium memory foam layer ,the NASA part of it. Most companies say there’s are around 5 lb foam, what is nectar or ghost rated?

    • Reply
      Chris Young December 28, 2016 at 2:05 am

      Hi Tom, less than 3 lb care called low density foam, 3-5 lbs are called medium density foam, more than 5 is called high density foam. low density foam is soft, this kind of memory foam mattress feels softer, and you’ll sink into it more quickly. high density foam is firm, these mattresses have outstanding support and durability. So as the comfort layer,most mattress company choose the medium density foam, as I know, NECTAR used 3.5 lbs memory foam with a medical grade cooling and recovery levels, Ghostbed used 4 lbs density of gel memory foam with larger cells.

    I am interested in the Nectar but noticed a flaw in your report. You have to pay $99 for them to set up your new bed and then pay another $39 for them to haul the old mattress away. I think you may want to fix your review when you say it is free as that was at first a selling point for me.

      Chris Young December 29, 2016 at 2:03 am

      Hey Donna,thanks for dropping by, good question, and I’m sorry to confuse you, yes you’re right, they provided a “white glove service”, set up new mattress for $100 and remove old mattress for $39 as you said, but this is optional, as long as you have a flat surface you can install by yourself. What I mean for free is the shipment as return, actually as I know, only a few mattress companies provided “white glove service”, and none of them is free. hope this help.

    I just ordered a Nectar based on your review after debating between the Ghostbed and Leesa. I hope it is the right decision. Besides your review and a few others doesn’t seem to be many reviews out there on the Nectar. Even Amazon had just 1 review…kind of strange. Any further information on why so little reviews relative to Ghostbed and Leesa for example?

      Hey Zev, we just ordered ours too and thought the exact same as you – odd that there are so few reviews. Ours has not shipped yet. Have you had any issues with yours?

      Chris, thank you for such a thoughtful review, but can you comment on the company at all?

        Hey, Seamus , I just got message from Jamie, not sure if you’re the family 🙂
        I owned NECTAR for about 45 days. No problem at all, maybe some misfit in the first two days, but now no problem at all, and better and better, sleep cool, comfortable, no toss and turn , really like it.
        This is a young American company(less than one year) so I guess you can’t see too much review right now, I guess not too much mattress review site tried this mattress, but I believe there would be more and more in the coming month.
        Just give it a try, if really not your cake(but I believe you will like it), then return for free within 365 nights so nothing to worry about. Hope this help.

        • Seamus O'Briain January 5, 2017 at 3:06 pm

          Ha, Jamie is my work email, and Seamus my given (Gaelic name). Sorry for the confusion Chris, I had left this comment before your sent your email last night. Thanks again!

      Hey Zev, good question, NECTAR bed just got released on 09/26/2016 on Amazon, if too much reviews, then they should be fake review :-). As I claimed in http://getbestmattress.com/brooklyn-bedding-vs-leesa-vs-nectar-vs-casper-vs-helix/ , Nectar is a young company so compared with Leesa/Ghostbed, is got less exposure, I guess more and more mattress review site will post review in 2-3 months. Don’t worry, this is a awesome mattress, I’m sure you will like it, don’t forget to share with us your experience with NEctar here. Cheers!

    Hello, I’m interested in the Nectar mattress, and I wanted to know about the bounce of the mattress. I saw on your site that it doesn’t have as much bounce as a Leesa or Dromma mattress, but I wanted to know if it still had a decent bounce so that it doesn’t feel like you’re stuck inside the mattress and move freely.

    Thank you for all of your work!

      Chris Young January 13, 2017 at 2:39 am

      Hey Brendon, of course it has enough bouncy, as I mentioned in the review, the third layer is 3″ adaptive Hi Core memory foam, it make sure you won’t stuck inside the mattress. Yes I mentioned the bouncy is not as good as Dromma bed or Leesa, that’s because Dromma bed just use latex as top layer, and Leesa use Avena foam(feels like latex) as top layer, but that doesn’t mean NECTAR is lack of bouncy you know.

    Would you recommend NECTAR if I’m a back sleeper and prefer medium firm? My wife is not as picky… but I’m getting info overload. Also thought about the Luxi…

    • Reply
      Chris Young February 17, 2017 at 4:20 am

      Of course, the firmness scale of NECTAR is 6-6.5/10, perfect for back sleepers. Compared with other online mattresses, NECTAR is higher(11″) , the word’s only forever warranty, very long free trial (365 nights, the industry standard is just 10 years).Absolutely best mattress under $1,000.
      Luxi has more than 1 firmness scale to choose, but for you, I believe medium would be the most suitable, and one of our reader report she met bad customer service from Luxi,you can reference comment of Luxi mattress review(http://getbestmattress.com/luxi-mattress-review/).
      So I suggest you give NECTAR a try. I believe you’ll like it.

    Placed my order on Tuesday 2/7/17, was officially charged on 2/9. Contacted them through the chat service on Friday as my order had stayed in “processing” status through the week. Just asked to confirm a shipping date. Was told it should be on its way by Monday the 12th. Cool, no problem. Well, shipping label wasn’t created until Tuesday. My Nectar account and automatic email says my mattress has shipped. My FedEx tracking number says otherwise. After 3 days of no change, I contacted Nectar by phone to cancel my order. I had to leave a message and a Rep would call me back asap. No phone call ever returned. No contact or follow up emails or explanations ever given. So far, no impressed with Nectar or their customer service at all.

      Sorry to hear that Henry, I tried to contact with the manufacture and was told that they are back ordered on Kings and Queens for two weeks while supply catches up. Too many orders. And he promised to give you a call right away, how is it going?
