Serenity HLP Mattress Review
The Serenity HLP Mattress (by Regal Sleep) offers a high degree of customisation, allowing you to adjust firmness levels to suit your preference. It is Australian made and comes with an impressive 15 year warranty.
Purchase and delivery
Just like other ‘bed in a box’ products, the Serenity HLP Mattress can be ordered online and will be delivered to your door in a compact box. Delivery is free to (metropolitan areas of) Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, and Brisbane as well as certain regional areas. Please see full delivery details below in our ‘Delivery’ section.
The Serenity HLP Mattress box arrived in reasonable condition and is taller than most boxes we have seen. Unpacking the Serenity HLP Mattress should only take 5-10 minutes, and as always we recommend having two people on hand to assist in the unpacking process.
Once all the packaging is removed, the Serenity HLP Mattress should be ready to sleep on after a few hours. With that said, we always allow a mattress in a box to decompress for 24 hours before testing.
Aesthetically speaking, the Serenity HLP Mattress has a simple, yet modern design. It uses a grey and white colour theme, with wavy stitching on its top cover. It also has brand name embroidery at the base of the mattress.
The Serenity HLP Mattress has an outer cover made from Merino wool. This feels thick, durable, and is also well ventilated. This cover is removable and washable, making the mattress easy to keep clean.
This cover sits over a layer of Hygroflex foam (cream coloured with an orange coloured border), and a layer of ‘customisable’ comfort foam (varying colours, depending on the firmness). As the name suggests, the customisable foam layer can be exchanged with another foam layer of a different firmness.
These foam layers sit over a 9 zone pocket spring system made from Australian steel.
How does the customisation work?
As we mentioned earlier, the Serenity HLP Mattress can be customised to suit your individual preference. What this means is that you can choose the exact firmness level of the mattress that suits you (and/or your partner).
On your initial order, you can select either a ‘firm’ or ‘medium’ feel. In addition to these 2 options (on your initial order), you can order a ‘half-half’ configuration (firm on one side, and medium on the other). This is ideal for couples who have different firmness preferences.
If you aren’t satisfied with your initial selection, you can request from Serenity HLP (at no charge) additional foam layers to alter the firmness of your mattress (you must wait 7 nights from the time of delivery, and it must be done within the 100 night trial period).
The additional pieces of foam that can be requested include (with foam colours):
- Plush (yellow)
- Medium (white)
- Firm (purple)
- Extra firm (green)
Serenity HLP also allows you to request different foam pieces for different sections of the body. This unique adjustability makes this mattress very suitable for those who experience back pain, and is very reminiscent of the popular Sleeping Duck Mattress.
Comfort and support
The medium version of the Serenity HLP offers plenty of comfort and ‘bounce’ (responsiveness). Although pressure relief is plentiful, we didn’t detect any undesirable sinking. To this point, this version still offers good back support, especially in the side lying position.
We rated the medium version as a 5.5 / 10 on the firmness scale (where 10 is the firmest). Please note that our firmness ratings are just a guide and they do not necessarily relate to comfort.
The firm version is still nicely balanced with comfort and support, and (like the medium version) responds to body movement well. It is a little softer than some other firm versions we have tested, but nevertheless, it supports the spine well. We rated the firm version as a 7 / 10 on the firmness scale.
If neither the firm or medium options are to your liking, you do have the option to request ‘extra firm’ or ‘plush’ foam layers to adjust the mattress firmness.
We rated the extra firm version as a 7.5 / 10 on the firmness scale. Again, please note that our firmness ratings are just a guide and they do not necessarily relate to comfort.
Extra Firm Version
The plush version offers plenty of pressure relief, and will generally suit those who only sleep on their side. We rated the plush version as a 4 / 10 on the firmness scale.
Regardless of what firmness option/s you choose, the Serenity HLP offers offers good spinal support in all sleeping positions. Its pocket spring system feels stable, yet responsive, and should accommodate people of all sizes.
The finer details
The overall level of quality and craftsmanship of the Serenity HLP Mattress is very respectable. Its outer cover feels durable, and the side handles are strongly attached.
The zip mechanism that removes the top cover seems adequate, and the customisable foam layers are relatively easy to rearrange. Edge support is firm, and although partner disturbance is present, it is certainly not significant.
Serenity HLP offers a solid 100 night free trial and a 15 year warranty, giving you plenty of reassurance when you buy. As mentioned earlier, requests for firmness adjustments must be done within the 100 night trial period. Requests for firmness adjustments cannot be made in the first week (from the time of delivery).
The Serenity HLP Mattress is available in 6 sizes (king, queen, double, king single, long single and single) so it should accomodate most sleeping arrangements. Here are Australia’s standard bed (mattress) sizes in 2021.
The Serenity HLP Mattress is a very good mattress that offers a high level of customisation. It is one of only a few, Australian made ‘mattress in a box’ products, and comes with a handy 100 night trial period.
