The trial period for a Guru mattress lasts for 100 nights starting from the day it arrives at your home, and customers can choose to return the bed in exchange for a full refund. The prices of the Guru mattresses are some of the most affordable beds in the market right now, without any compromises on quality. The company is able to achieve this because the mattresses are manufactured and shipped locally within Britain, offering factory-direct prices to Zen® customers.

Zen® is UK-based mattress company that specializes in affordable and high-quality memory foam mattresses. The renowned brand has a vast array of mattress collections for users to choose from. The Guru by Zen® mattresses are offered in memory foam and hybrid models, uniquely catering to the differing needs of the customers.
The Guru Mattress by Zen® is a comfortable combination of three special, uniquely engineered layers, each one specifically designed to ensure users enjoy a good sleep without any disruption. The layers for both the mattress types are as follows:
Guru by Zen
The 8cm topmost 4G Air Memory Foam layer of the Guru bed-in a box mattress provides comfort and good lumbar support. The memory foam molds to your body shape, promoting spinal alignment, and providing support.
Bottom two support layers:
The other two layers are of Revo technology foam and base foam, making up the 15 cm of reflex foam at the bottom. The Revo layer encourages increased airflow and gives the mattress an extra dose of bounce.
Guru 3000 Hybrid
The Guru 3000 Hybrid has a top layer which is 5cm of high-density memory foam for comfortable lumbar support and pressure point relief.
Bottom two layers:
Below the top layer is a 14cm thick twin layer of Reflex foam. Nestled inside the mattress are a total of 1000 18cm tall individually placed pocket springs and 2000 2.5cm responsive mini pocket springs. These springs in combination with the foam layers give the feeling of both luxury and support. Additionally, the high-quality pocket springs offer exceptional point-pressure relief.
The open-cell structure of the memory foam layer in both the mattresses aerates the whole mattress, keeping its temperature regulated. Good ventilation also keeps the moisture from building up and causing bacterial growth in the mattress structure. This, in turn, gives way to a cool, breezy sleep and discourages the likelihood of allergic reactions.
Guru mattresses come with a top-of-the-range mattress cover that boasts adaptive fabrics, specifically engineered for body-temperature regulation and maintaining the bed’s moisture levels. Guru mattresses open-celled foam encourages smooth airflow; the added ventilation helps keep users cool and comfortable throughout the night, guaranteeing a clean, uninterrupted sleep. The cover adds to the mattress’ durability and is easy to remove. You can machine wash the Guru mattress cover, but be sure to do so with care.
Firmness, Feel & Support
Both the mattresses offered in the Guru range by Zen® have similar firmness and feel, with the Guru 3000 Hybrid having a more luxurious touch and offering greater support thanks to its springs. Guru mattresses contour to your body’s shape, keeping you snug and comfortable throughout sleep.
Both models boast a medium-soft level of firmness. This firmness level is especially appreciated by side sleepers and lighter bodies. Heavier people may feel like they sink too much into the mattress, however. The memory foam layer contours to every part of your body, and the bed also deters motion transfer thanks to its resilient layering. This feature limits the disruptions that couples feel during sleep, when their partner rolls about, reducing interruptions in sleep by movement. This makes the Guru mattresses the right accessory for happier relationships!
