Sleep Sherpa Reviews the Cariloha Bamboo Mattress

Cariloha recently launched their own memory-foam mattress. It’s called the Cariloha Bamboo Mattress.

Cariloha is well known for their bamboo sheets and clothing. In fact, on a recent Disney Cruise, we stopped in Nassau, Bahamas where Cariloha had a store.

When looking at a map of Cariloha stores, you can see that most of them are in warm regions, which makes sense because their clothing bedding and now mattress are designed to keep you cool and comfortable.

Overview of the Cariloha Mattress

Below is a video fo me on the Cariloha mattres calling out some of the major features. A queen size mattress currently retails for $1,100 and comes with a 100-night trial where you can return it for a full refund; note that this trial offer is only available in the contiguous United States.

Once you place your order, the mattress will arrive in a box in about a week.

Construction of the Cariloha Mattress

Cariloha put together a nice video of how their mattress is constructed.

Below are the specs of the mattress as listed on [Cariloha’s] website:

Top Layer

Naturally breathable, hypoallergenic bamboo charcoal memory foam is purified and carbonized in excess of 760° celsius to then be harmoniously blended with state-of-the-art, visco-elastic memory foam for the world’s most comfortable mattress.

Transition Memory foam Layer

Adapts to your body shape, alleviating pressure off the body’s main contour points to ensure a restful night’s sleep.

Base Layer

Improves airflow between you and the mattress keeping you 3° cooler, and helping retain the mattress’ ideal shape.


Side support. Works as a stabilizing system and gives you 20% more sleeping surface. Sleep edge to edge without rolling off. Plus, it extends the life of the mattress up to 50% longer than normal mattresses.


The charcoal infused memory foam top layer of the mattress is a dense foam so it is great with pressure relief. The layer underneath seemded to compress faster than the top layer, which slowly eases you into the mattress.

Here’s a picture to show how much the mattress will sink using a 14 lb. bowling ball.


The Cariloha Mattress is a great medium firm mattress and is ideal for people who like benefits that high-density foam can provide without the drawbacks of a slow recovery. You don’t sink much into this mattress, which is good for cooling. Although there is added edge support in this mattress, I didn’t notice any significant transition. I didn’t feel like I was going to roll off the edge of the bed either.

If you’re familiar with Cariloha bamboo sheets and like their brand, I think you will be pleased with their mattress offering as well.
