Cooling & Temperature Control

Crafted with materials like EverCool® Fuze Gel, Memory foam enhances the cooling of the mattress. Besides, the wrapped coils also aid airflow.

Motion Isolation and Sharing a Bed


A coiled mattress engrosses movements like all foam, so the sleeper on one side of the bed is not bothered by motions on the other. This parameter makes Serta Serene Sky mattresses generally a good choice for couples. The foams offer outstanding comfort. The presence of up to 805 individually wound coils, including Serta Best Edge® Foam Encasement technology, enhances the mattress’s support.

Edge Support


The Serta Arctic offers excellent edge-to-edge support. The Serta® Foam Core provides strong support for any sleep position with consistent support from edge to edge. People don’t have the sensation of rolling off the border; while sleeping, they enjoy a more excellent surface.

Besides the Hybrid version, the individually wrapped coils of the 1025 Hybrid Support™ System along with BestEdge® Foam Encasement work freely to provide durable support.

Recommendation based on sleeping style

Q1. How would you describe the Serta Serene Sky™ mattress based on individual sleeping style?

  • Side Sleepers: more curves are available on our side. Shoulders. Hips. Knees. These areas create tension and pressure. Ideally, a softer mattress cradle the hips and shoulders to prevent stress and injury. Serta Arctic mattress is suitable to both lightweight and average weight sleepers. Heavy people will sink deep and may put pressure on the shoulder and hip.
  • Back Sleepers: Sleeping on the back is the best for spine health. Sleepers want a mattress that keeps weight off the joints and pressure points and cradles your spine optimally to maintain healthy alignment. Specifically, a firm mattress is great for back Firm mattresses prevent the hips and lumbar region from sinking deep and are suitable for the back. Healthy spinal alignment is vital for all types of sleepers. Serta Arctic offers comfort to the back sleepers in the lightweight and average weight category.
  • Stomach Sleepers-Stomach sleepers are at the most significant risk of spinal problems as there is a great deal of pressure on the thoracic and lumbar spine. Ideally- a firm mattress that holds up the hips, reducing pressure on the lower back. Serta Arctic is not so suitable to stomach sleepers. Heavy people will exert force, and there will be curvature and cause aches & pains.
  • Combination Sleepers- Sleepers who tend to toss and turn throughout the night change sleeping positions frequently. Depending on their weight, all Serta Serene Arctic mattresses do not perform well as the responsiveness of the mattress is low.
