When two industry leaders go head to head - who comes out on top?

The Ghostbed is a good mattress. But it just doesn’t stand up to the Awara when it comes to price, warranty, trial, and environmental impact. If you’re looking at an Awara, you know you’re getting a mattress that’s not only an incredible nights sleep, but one that gives back to the communities they work with to provide you with an amazing mattress. Ghostbed costs over $1000 more, and hasn’t made any effort to look after the planet.

The Problem with Ghostbed

If you’re looking for a mattress that cares about the environment as much as you do, then the Ghostbed Flex mattress just doesn’t cut it. For half the price of the ghostbed, you get Awara’s premium quality hybrid mattress, hand crafted from organic and sustainable materials. Plus you get to sleep easy knowing that your choice made a positive impact on the people who helped to make it.

  • Awara uses Rainforest Alliance-Certified Dunlop natural latex that is sustainably sourced for a layer of cooling, cushioning comfort. Ghostbed doesn’t use real latex at all! They use a synthetic blend known as “gel memory foam” to synthesize a similar feeling to real latex. This isn’t nearly as comfortable or as breathable as the real thing. And sounds a lot like cutting corners to make more profit to us.
  • Awara has the superior system of using individually wrapped coils to give you that familiar bounce-back feeling of a traditional spring mattress. These coils respond directly to the curves and contours of your body, making sure you’re comforted and supported where you need to be. Ghostbed’s 8 ½” individually wrapped support coils aren’t quite as hefty as the Awara’s, meaning they won’t last as long, or offer you the support and comfort you need.
  • The Euro top for the Awara mattress is a perfect example of what we like to call eco-luxury,  made of 100% New Zealand wool and providing cushiony support, and natural temperature control. Ghostbed doesn’t have a Eurotop at all, and their cover is made of a synthetic material they call “Ghost Ice Fabric”. I mean I guess you can call your artificial viscose-polyester blend material whatever you want – but there’s still nothing natural about it!

For luxury that doesn’t compromise, choose Awara.
Don’t pay more and get less with the ghostbed!

Guilt-free premium materials, at half the price

Plush Euro Top with New Zealand Wool

This plush Euro Top is covered in smooth organic cotton and cozy 100% organic New Zealand wool. So you stay cool and dry as you sleep.

Breathable Natural Dunlop Latex​

4 inches of Rainforest Alliance certified natural Dunlop latex contours to your curves and supports pressure points and joints.

Premium Coil Support Core

Individually wrapped 9” coils improve breathability and reduce motion transfer. Even if your partner tosses and turns.

Easy-Move Base with 4 Reinforced Handles

A beautiful cotton blend cover wraps this supportive base. Plus 4 sturdy handles to make any move a breeze.

Quilted, Cooling Cover

artificial viscose-polyester blend “Ghost ice” material - meant to keep you cool, but sounds pretty artificial to us.

Cooling Fiber

Flexing the ghost ice material again

Gel Memory Foam

Meant to give you a “ghost hug” feeling, which feels a little spooky.

1″ of Gel Memory Foam

Wait… wasn’t that the last layer, too? So just an extra inch, then.

Ghost Bounce Layer

4” of proprietary gel memory foam. Nothing natural here. They won’t even tell you what’s in it! Just a nudge, a wink, and a ghostly name.

Individually Wrapped & Reinforced Coils

Another spooky name, Spirited Edge™ support, to try and reduce the bounce they put in layer 5.

High-Density Support Layer

To support the layers above.

Latex is a better choice. Naturally.

Latex provides all the supportive benefits of a memory foam mattress without the odors or chemicals. Latex also contours to your body – which can help keep the spine properly aligned and alleviate pressure points at night. Not to mention that latex offers above-average motion isolation.

  • Our latex is Rainforest Alliance certified. Which means that our organic, sustainable latex contributes to protecting forests and improving the livelihoods of farmers and forest communities – promoting their human rights, and helping them mitigate and adapt to the climate crisis.
  • The awara has 4’’ of luxurious latex, specifically designed to keep you cool, and take away the stresses and strain of your day while you sleep. As we mentioned, the Ghostbed doesn’t use any natural latex, and has quite a strange set up! Since they don’t have natural latex, they have substituted a series of different memory foams (four on the comfort layer and one along the bottom for support). Each of these layers is only around 1’’ thick each, and might not give the same responsive comfort and support as a single uninterrupted layer of latex.

Good for you. Good for the environment.

“Something about this mattress has completely changed my sleeping life.”

Awara supports your body, your conscience, and your favorite sleep-style.

Hybrid mattresses are a little different to Memory Foam. They are a little firmer: instead of “sinking in”, you settle down, and the mattress supports every curve.
