Y’all know I love eco-friendly products. So when I saw that Awara Sleep Mattressses have won several green mattress certifications and awards, I was immediately interested. Then I read that the Awara Premier Natural Hybrid Mattress has a plush Euro Top and my interest was peaked. I mean, 4 inches of Rainforest Alliance certified natural Dunlop latex covered in smooth organic cotton and soft 100% organic New Zealand wool? I always love it when green products are luxury products that reward you for picking the best! So I am happy to bring you an Awara Mattress review. Awara Sleep did provide me with a full size Awara Luxury Natural Hybrid Mattress and affiliate link in order to facilitate this review.
Organic Latex Mattress
I have always considered natural latex mattresses to be some of the most comfortable mattresses because it contours to your body so perfectly. I got one back when I was in high school because my mom has always been on the cutting edge of finding eco-friendly, luxury products. It is her natural talent! Anyway, the Awara mattresses feature Rainforest Alliance certified natural Dunlop latex. They also feature a premium coil support core of individually wrapped 8” coils, thus the hybrid name. This means that you get great support and great comfort. Firm and soft all at once. In fact it won the “Editor’s Pick Best Organic Latex Mattress 2022” from Tuck.
However, it is not just the organic latex inside that mattress that makes it such an eco-friendly choice. All Awara Mattresses are GREENGUARD Gold Certified by UL Environment. This mattress certification means that your mattress has passed the most rigorous scientific testing to ensure that it’s free from chemical exposure including volatile organic compounds (VOCs), formaldehyde, and phthalates. That is important to everyone but more sensitive folks, such as children and the elderly. As it so happens, my son has sensitive skin and an auto immune condition so this mattress is perfect for him.
But wait there is even more to love about this green mattress choice. Awara also has OKEO-TEX 100 certification which means they don’t include any ozone-depleting substances, PBDEs, PDCPP or TCEP flame retardants, mercury, lead, formaldehyde, phthalates, or chlorofluorocarbons in any of their products. Now that feels nice, specially since they wrap the mattress in organic materials!
Awara Premier Natural Hybrid Mattress Review
I am so glad to have discovered Awara Sleep and their Natural Luxury Hybrid Mattress. The Awara mattress is made from premium natural materials like organic latex tapped from real rubber trees and 100% sustainably sourced wool from New Zealand. The new mattress feels amazing to sleep on, it looks great, and you can feel great about this eco-friendly mattress purchase.
The Awara Hybrid Mattress features a top layer of soft, comfortable latex. Unlike memory foam, Dunlop latex helps you sleep naturally cool. The latex layer is over a layer of wrapped coil springs which provide contour and support for a restful sleep throughout the night. Awara’s combination of latex and individually wrapped coils improves air circulation. This means that you can sleep cool and dry. The Awara premium coil support core also minimizes motion transfer. This means that if your partner tosses and turns the motion isolation will let you get a peaceful night sleep, regardless.
The Awara Premier Natural Hybrid Mattress features a Euro Top with 4″ of latex foam from rubber trees to relieve pressure points. Are you wondering, what is a Euro top mattress? Well, according to the Sleep Foundation, “Euro-tops are sewn on flush with the edges of the mattress, rather than to the top of the mattress. Because of this, mattresses with Euro-tops appear more flat and neatly stacked, while pillow-tops appear more rounded.” In other words, it has an extra layer of comfort just like a pillow top but it is sewn on evenly with the rest of the mattress. I love this cleaner look as well as the resulting superior edge support. In addition, I like the added height because my son has a platform bed and it needs a thick mattress to offset the low base.
On a firmness scale, I would give it a 7/10, medium firm. I think it is a good choice is you want a nice firm mattress for support but you will still want it to feel soft and inviting. The firmness level is ideal for combination sleepers. No matter the sleep position it does a good job providing a touch of bounce to a firm mattress. It is the ultimate in comfort- from sitting on it to read to laying down for a full night’s sleep. My 15 year old son is thrilled with his new mattress. And after I tested it out for myself, I am a loyal Awara fan too.

Awara Mattress Delivery and Setup
The Awara full sized mattress arrived via FedEx. I sent my son out to help the delivery man because it was a big box and we have a long, steep driveway. His faithful polar bear was excited about the new bed and came to see the Awara box too!
We opened the box up and pulled out the mattress. It is compressed for shipping and rolled and wrapped in plastic. It comes with an envelop that tells you to open it first and inside is a nifty safety cutter. In this way you can cut the plastic off of the mattress without risking cutting the mattress itself.
The air rushes back into the mattress as the plastic is removed. The mattress resumes most of its full size and shape almost instantly. It may continue to expand for a little while after. The Awara Mattress is Bed Frame Inclusive which means is can work with platform beds, adjustable bases, traditional frames or be placed on a box spring. We placed the mattress on his platform bed frame and he tried it out the same night. My son is a huge fan.
