ZenHaven – Natural Latex Mattress Review
ZenHaven is the all natural offering from established mattress maker Saatva. This is about as pure and natural as mattresses come – a non-toxic mattress with a focus on luxury using the high quality natural and organic materials. ZenHaven is only sold online, allowing it to compete with comparable luxury brands which can retail for thousands more. What sets this mattress apart is that it is double sided, so you can flip it for a firmer or softer experience.
Materials & Construction
Talalay latex support core – 100% natural Talalay makes up the base layer in the middle of the mattress, offering resilience and support. It uses an open cell structure to increase air flow, and helps to disperse body heat.
2-in-1 adjustable comfort layers – There are two comfort layers on either side of the support core. One offers a “luxury plush” feel and the other a “gentle firm” feel, so you can flip the mattress over for two different comfort levels. This dual sided feature is what makes this mattress unique in my opinion. These comfort layers are also made from 100% natural Talalay latex, and feature zoned support; basically varying levels of density to suit different areas of the body.
Natural NewZealand wool layer – Both sides of the mattress are topped in a padding of 100% organic New Zealand wool blend. This means no toxic fire retardants are necessary, as wool is naturally fire resistant. The wool layer also provides additional comfort and breathability.
Organic cotton cover – Everything is encased in a quilted cover of organic cotton.

- All natural materials – Natural and non-toxic materials and zero fire retardants mean no VOC’s polluting your indoor air quality.

- Zoned support – The Zen Haven features a patented 5-Zone construction system giving pressure free support and proper body alignment. Good balance between comfort and support.
- Open cell structure – The open cell structure allows air to circulate through the mattress, evenly distributing body heat and creating a cooler more comfortable sleeping surface.

- Free Delivery & 120 night trial – Free white glove delivery and removal of your old mattress. Try for a generous 120 days and return it for a full refund.
- Price – Made in the USA from the best high quality materials means this mattress is not the cheapest, but buyers are typically making a longer term investment. Coming in at under $2000, the price is still very competitive compared to other luxury latex mattresses. If your after more of a short term solution or on a modest budget, there are definitely cheaper all latex alternatives.
- Weight – Latex is a weighty material, which makes the ZenHaven heavy compared to mattresses built with springs and traditional polyurethane foams. It makes moving it a little more annoying than moving a regular mattress, but by no means an impossible task!
This is a pure and simple all natural, non toxic mattress with a focus on luxury and the highest quality premium materials. For the price, what you get is real value. Aside from organic and natural materials, a real point of difference here is the double sided construction. The biggest factor with buying a mattress online has to be that you can’t test it out first, so having two options, a firmer side and a softer side, offers real peace of mind. With a 120 day trial, they are really willing to bet that you will love this mattress!
Give yourself time to fall in love with this mattress
I love this mattress now, but it took about 3 weeks before I, and it, adjusted. I’m the “princess and the pea” kind of person and this mattress is perfect for me now. So glad I gave it more time before jumping to a hasty and wrong conclusion.
First off… I hate getting out of bed now. That is saying a lot because before I received my Zenhaven I couldn’t stay in bed because it was so uncomfortable. I’m not the best person to review any mattress because my old one was 20+ years old and probably a card board box with sheets on it would have been better that want I had. However, from order to delivery was a bit slow (12-19-17 to 1-19-18) I did order a few days before Christmas and I’m sure I wasn’t the only person ordering a new mattress for Christmas but it is well worth the wait. Customer service contacted me several times during the process and I was able to text or call them when I want a progress report. Delivery was as advertised, they gave me a 4 hour window and at the top of the 3rd hour they showed up, removed my old mattress, setup foundation and mattress, gave me time to lay on each side and flipped the mattress before they left. Now to the sleep, the first two nights were nothing to get excited about and then I began to get very comfortable and now I don’t even want to get up. When I do, my “normal” aches and pains are not an issue, I’m feeling more rested. There is no chemical fumes and it doesn’t come squashed and squeezed in a tiny box. Very pleased I made the choice to buy a Zenhaven mattress. A big thank you to customer service for not leaving me hanging during the wait… to be able to contact them and get a quick reply is worth its wait in gold.
Upon searching for a non-toxic (latex) comfortable mattress option I came across the Zenhaven mattress by Saavta. The reviews were all favorable and since there was a trial period I thought why not. Could not be happier! We ordered the king with the split lineal and love it! Would recommend to anyone that asks (I have already recommended to someone that asked) – nice job!
