In this Noa Luxe mattress review, I will explore this premium option from the Canadian maker that recently launched in the UK. For those that you have never heard of the Noa brand, it’s a maker that launched about 2 years ago and since then, they have seen great success in Canada and Australia.
Besides this mattress, their range includes the Noa mattress and the Noa Lite mattress. These two options come with a cheaper price tag but they don’t match the specs of the Noa Luxe mattress. Mine arrived about 4 weeks ago so it’s a good time now to move to the full review below.
A cooling gel memory foam layer that is designed to regulate the body’s heat so the sleeping surface can stay cool during the night. It also helps with comfort and pressure relief.
A comforting memory foam layer that has great contouring properties. This layer can support your pressure points so you get better rest.
A layer made of micro-coils that can support your body. This type of foam allows important airflow, especially during the summer.
An adaptive transition foam layer that is designed to eliminate motion transfer. This is helpful as springs tend to transfer motion and this layer addresses that.
A pocket springs layer that is there to support your body. They have created a zoned system that can provide enhanced support for demanding areas like your hips and shoulders.
A thick foam layer that encases the perimeter of the mattress. It’s there to help with better edge support.
The mattress measures 30cm in height and all the foams used here follow the REACH Standards. The picture below gives us a better look at the inside of this mattress.
What is the cover made of?
The cover of the Noa Lux mattress is made of Tencel. This fantastic material has a number of properties that makes it ideal for mattresses. It’s very breathable but at the same time, it’s naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial. It’s also durable and it feels quite soft. To make it more comfortable, they added a pillow top which is a nice addition and it makes this mattress look more premium. The cover features a two-tone colourway with the upper part being white and the side part being dark grey. It’s a nice design and I personally loved it. On the sides, they have added 4 handles that will help you move it. This is practical thinking and it’s great when makers think this way. Unfortunately, the cover is not removable so you can only spot-clean it where needed. Overall, it’s a high-quality cover and Noa did an excellent job here.
How firm is the Noa Luxe mattress?
It’s time now to continue with this Noa Luxe mattress review and talk about its firmness. When designing it, they wanted to create a mattress that could suit every sleeper so this one comes with a medium-firm feel. If I use my virtual scale here, I would say it’s a 6.7 with 10 being really firm. I would like now to talk about the different sleeping positions and how this mattress performed.
Sleeping in the back position, the mattress did a good job with my back and I felt well-supported. The upper foam layers provided my body with the needed pressure relief and it was comfortable in this position.
Turning to the side position, the mattress adjusted quickly to my body weight and sinkage increased. This helped me to have a better spine alignment and I was impressed with how comfortable it was to sleep this way. Support was good and the Noa Luxe did a great job with this position.
Finally, moving to the stomach position, the mattress supported my hips and shoulders which helped my spine to align correctly. The sleeping surface felt firm enough and I really enjoyed sleeping in this position.
If you are a couple, this mattress comes with excellent edge support. This is due to the foam perimeter which helps a lot with that. In addition, the mattress features minimal motion transfer despite featuring pocket springs. That makes it a great choice for couples.
What type of bed can I use with this mattress?
This mattress doesn’t need a special set up and you can place it on any flat surface. However, I would advise you to use a slatted frame as it can help with airflow and it’s more hygienic. Other options include box springs or platform beds. If you use a slatted frame make sure the distance between each slat is no longer than 7cm.
Will this be packed in a box?
When you order your Noa Luxe mattress, you should expect it to come packed inside a carton box. They offer free delivery for all UK postcodes and you should expect it within 2-7 working days. That depends on where you live so for me in London, it was 4 working days. The whole process was straightforward and communication was excellent. Overall, I was happy with the service I got.
Is there a trial period for this mattress?
Every Noa mattress comes with a 100-night trial period so you have plenty of time to try this mattress and decide later whether you want to keep it or not. If you are not happy with it, you can return it and get a full refund. The process is simple and you don’t have to keep the original packaging to be able to return it. Besides that, you will also get a 15-year guarantee which will cover you for a really long time. Overall, this is a great support package here so no complaints at all.
How much does it cost?
The Luxe mattress is available in 5 sizes so you have several options. The smaller size (Single) sells for £1,149 with the bigger (Super King) going for £1,649. However, they run frequent promotions so you will rarely have to pay the full price. For instance, there was a 40% off discount at the moment of writing so you would pay only £809 for a double one.

Is the Noa Luxe mattress any good?
It’s time now to complete this Noa Luxe mattress review and share my final thoughts about it. I think that this mattress would be ideal for those looking for:
A hybrid mattress that is designed for combo sleepers.
A premium mattress that is made with high-quality materials.
A mattress that comes with great service and it’s good for couples.
If you look for all the above, the Noa Luxe mattress should be high on your list. It’s a great new entry into the UK market and it will suit everyone who wants to get better sleep. Noa managed to build a great mattress that is fairly priced and this is quite hard to find!
If you are willing to spend the same amount of money, you can also look at the Emma Original Hybrid mattress which is one of the best hybrid options out there. It performed well in every sleeping position and it comes with great service and support. Alternatively, if you look for a foam-only option, the Eve Premium mattress can be a good choice. It’s a hotel-style mattress with excellent specs from a name that you can trust.
