Read: Noa Review


The Noa luxe is the top of the mattress in the Noa collection. It has plenty of the same traits that made the Noa so sought after. Still, you will find the Noa Luxe to have some premium extras, one of them being the addition of bamboo charcoal latex. The material is eco-friendly, fragrance-free, allergen-free, and non-toxic.

Also, the permeable structure absorbs excess moisture and repels odors. The Noa Luxe is a hybrid mattress, so instead of a foam base, you have pocket springs, which is different from the Ecosa. From all the mattresses we have reviewed there’s not many that include micro-coils and this latest innovation expands and contracts in response to the pressure of your body, making the Noa Luxe extremely comfortable.

The mattress is in a similar price range and is excellent for anybody looking for a comfortable alternative that isn’t all memory foam.

Closest match : Emma


Pricing Range:
Emma – $549 – $1035
Ecosa – $799 – $1199

Pros

  • Won over 30 awards
  • 7 zones of support
  • OEKO-TEX® certification


Read: Emma Review


Emma is the highest awarded mattress in Europe with 30 + awards and an impressive statistic of over 400,000 people sleeping on them. Emma has recently arrived in Australia, and we understand why they have so many awards. It’s fabulous to sleep on. The mattress is slightly firmer compared to most memory foams, but that’s one of the reasons why people prefer them.

The 3 layers that make up the bed is a breathable eco-friendly hyperfoam, supportive polyether foam, and pressure-relieving point-elastic foam (excuse the mattress marketing jargon). We think the mattress is very comfortable, and if you want a memory foam mattress similar to the Ecosa but without the price tag, then I recommended this option.

Australian made : Hugo

Pricing Range:
Hugo – $630 – $1030
Koala – $750 – $1250

Pros

  • Natural latex
  • Australian made
  • 4 layers of foam design

Read: Hugo Review


The Hugo is another memory foam alternative that’s Australian made. With the Hugo, you get premium pressure relief and comfort without feeling ‘too-firm’ because of the combination of the 4 foam layers that is great for all body types and sleeping positions.

Being Australian made Hugo also has excellent customer service and offers same-day delivery to Melbourne metro areas and everywhere else in Aus is still fast and free.

The Hugo mattress foam layers are positioned and designed to have increased airflow and bounce. The layers starting at the top and working our way down go- latex, is naturally hypoallergenic and antimicrobial to reduce bacteria. Next, is memory foam that matches your body’s natural contours and works with the latex top layer, then a premium transition layer (that most mattresses skip over), and a high-density foam foundation that adds support and longevity.

Best Budget : Zinus ICoil

Pricing Range:
Zinus – $239 – $420
Ecosa – $799 – $1199

Pros

  • It’s an affordable mattress
  • Certi-PUR US certified
  • Hybrid


Read: Zinus Review


The Zinus ICoil is our budget-friendly choice, it’s a great mattress, but you won’t be getting all the bells and whistles like the other mattresses on the list. However, for the price, it’s the best mattress we have found in Australia.

Most of the time, you will find the foams on cheap mattresses to be treated or contain nasty chemicals. Which you will be breathing in every night, for years. However, the ZinusICoil is Certi-PUR US certified, so you don’t have to worry about that.

You can find the Zinus ICoil on Amazon.com.au, it also includes a 10-year warranty and is also a hybrid mattress. But, don’t expect the same level of comfort as the other mattresses on the list.

Cooler Sleep : Macoda

Pricing Range:
Macoda – $650 – $1100
Ecosa – $799 – $1199

Pros

  • Hybrid bed
  • Change the firmness
  • Zoned support


Read: Macoda Review


Macoda is a hybrid mattress, so instead of memory foam layers stacked together (which gets hot), you have a pocket spring base. This allows more airflow through the bed, keeping you cooler. Plus the foam layers that are in the Macoda are designed to keep you cool, like the natural pinhole latex and gel-infused memory foam.

The Macoda is also customisable like the Ecosa; you get two foam inserts that are interchangeable for a different firmness level. The different opinions give a soft, medium and firm comfort level depending on the set, and it only takes a couple of minutes. Great for fussy sleepers.

The Macoda contains 3 layers of foam and pocket springs all encased in a plush bamboo cover that is as comfortable as it looks. The layers of foam are latex, gel-infused memory foam, and high-density support foam.
