Advantages of Each Mattress, Selemy, Serenity, Sanctuary
Alea Selemy Mattress
The Alea Selemy Mattress is exclusively made in Canada, using Canadian materials. It comes with 3 layers of foam. The top part is the comfort part of the mattress, then followed by a transition layer and finally a base support layer. Having 3 layers is key to comfort and support, as you don’t want to go directly from comfort to base, or even simpler 1 layer of 1 firmness. In terms of firmness, its medium firm, a feel a lot of customers are used to when sleeping in hotels. The product itself will mold to the body of the individual , supporting both back and side sleepers, while providing a good amount of support. In terms of motion transfer, there practically is none. The AleaFoam™ was designed with coolness, comfort and motion transfer in mind. The cover is anti-microbial and anti-bacterial.
This mattress is great for those who don’t want to spend a lot on a mattress, but still want a quality mattress. Its comparable with the likes of Endy’s 3 layer mattress that is very popular across Canada. The main difference being the significantly lower price tag.
Alea Serenity Mattress
The Alea Serenity Mattress is unique in that it offers both the AleaFoam™ with a 3″ layer of cooling gel memory foam on top. This increases the comfort and support that many people are finding they like and desire. Most competitors, including Endy and Casper, use 2″ of memory foam or a cooling gel memory foam. So the extra 1″ really makes a difference. Its covered with a 100% GOTS Certified Organic Cotton Cover, which is like sleeping on heaven. Not that you want to always sleep directly on the cover (its tempting), but the positive impact of this type of cover are second to none. It’s heavenly *droolface*.
Alea Sanctuary Mattress
The epidemy of sleep. Combining the best features of every sleep technology and revolution. The aleasleep sanctuary mattress has all of the pluses and none of the drawbacks. It features the cooling memory foam that gives you the deep pressure and cradling support, with a layer of organic zoned latex. That allows your body the softness and spring. Nothing compares to latex’s cooling features, but to add even more temperature regulation, the Sanctuary added a wool layer for that added luxury. If your going to be paying $2000 for a mattress, you want the best. On top of this, its covered with an organic cotton layer, thats 100% GOTS certified. GOTS is a strict regulation. Anything that isn’t GOTS certified, isnt for a reason. And that reason is probably because the company is trying to greenwash you. So be wary of those who say organic cotton without the appropriate GOTS certification. It’s not expensive to get, but it has strict guidelines. Guidelines you want followed when paying for organic materials. The comfort and support is second to none and when I close my eyes, I can feel the soft support of this wonderful mattress.
If your after a really luxurious mattress, be prepared to pay a luxury price tag. The Sanctuary has all the frills, but if you have the budget its worth it. Keep in mind you’ll need sheets, pillows, bed frame and the rest of the furniture in the room. If you only sleep on your stomach or only on your back, the Serenity may be a bit too soft for you. A trick with the selemy is you can flip it over to get a really firm mattress if thats what you want.
If you do want to try it in person, unfortunately you will have to order it first. However, there is a free 101 night trial, with free shipping and returns so its of no risk to you. Other then setup and return if that is the case.
Alea really covers the bases with their product lineup. Each offering is unique in its own way and provides great value at the price points. We wouldn’t be surprised after a year or so to see these prices go up by a few hundred dollars each.
