The Nectar Premier Hybrid isolates motion slightly better than the typical hybrid. Memory foam and polyfoam layers act as shock absorbers for the springs, preventing movement from reverberating across the surface. Couples are therefore less likely to notice when their partner moves.
Any mattress with springs will generate some degree of motion transfer. High-movement sleepers and those over 230 pounds may notice more motion disturbance on the Premier Hybrid. Co-sleepers who are easily awakened may want to consider one of Nectar’s all-foam models, which offer superior motion isolation.

Pros & Cons:
Historically, Nectar has specialized in memory foam mattresses. Their flagship Nectar Mattress remains the brand’s most affordable and best-selling foam mattress. Shoppers seeking additional luxury features might consider the Nectar Premier or the Nectar Copper Premier. While the three models vary in height, all have a versatile medium firm (6) feel.
Nectar recently expanded its repertoire to include three hybrid mattresses. The Classic, Premier, and Premier Copper Hybrid all combine memory foam comfort systems with coil-based support systems. Unlike Nectar’s foam models, the hybrids feature a plush quilted cover with an antimicrobial sealant. While the Classic has the most accessible sticker tag, the Premier hybrids have thicker comfort systems and additional cooling features.
We’ll focus on the Nectar Premier Hybrid, discussing how the mattress’ materials and layout affect its comfort and support. We’ll also review how the model performs for different sleep positions and body weights.
Sleeping Style and Body Weight
Side sleepers usually prefer a plush mattress that contours closely to the body. Although a firm (7) feel is sometimes too firm for side sleepers, we found that the Premier Hybrid eases tension for side sleepers in all weight groups. Our testers reported that the memory foam cradles the hips and shoulders, while the high-density polyfoam supports good spine alignment. The mattress is an especially good fit for side sleepers over 230 pounds, as they don’t require as much contouring.
Our tests showed that the Premier Hybrid helps back sleepers maintain good spinal alignment. Sturdy coils and a firm feel limit sagging below the torso area, while the shoulders and legs are allowed to sink more. This mattress model is a solid choice for back sleepers over 130 pounds who usually experience excess sagging on all-foam mattresses.
Similar to back sleepers, our testers who sleep on their stomach found that the mattress’ firm feel provided good support. The pocketed coils and high-density polyfoam minimize sinkage beneath the midsection, helping the spine stay neutral. Additionally, the responsive memory foam alleviates pressure points on the shoulders, hips, and knees.
In addition to the hands-on feedback from our team, we conduct a number of quantitative tests in our Test Lab. The below ratings are based on the experience of our testers.

Nectar Premier Hybrid Mattress Review Breakdown
Nectar’s Premier Hybrid features five distinct layers. The soft and breathable quilted cover is fitted with handles for convenient carrying. The cover is treated with Microban, which is designed to reduce microbial growth.
The comfort system starts with a 1-inch layer of pressure-relieving memory foam. The foam incorporates gel infusions and phase change material, which are designed to dissipate excess heat. Next, a 2-inch layer of high-density polyfoam supports neutral spine alignment by preventing sinkage. A transitional polyfoam layer spreads body weight across the mattress and buffers sleepers from the sturdy steel coils.
The support system uses 8 inches of pocketed coils to stabilize the mattress. Each pocketed coil moves independently, so movement is less likely to ripple across the surface. The added bounce helps ensure that sleepers don’t feel “stuck” inside the memory foam. Reinforced edges are intended to prevent excess sagging along the sides. A final polyfoam layer helps keep the mattress firmly grounded.
The mattress’ firm (7) feel is designed to support all sleep positions.
Firm – 7
The Nectar Premier is a 5-layer hybrid with a quilted fabric cover. Memory foam and polyfoam comfort layers rest on a pocketed coil core with reinforced edges.

Mattress Prices and Sizing
Despite being one of Nectar’s higher-end models, the Premier Hybrid still has a more accessible price-point than many luxury hybrids. Different cooling features, a taller profile, and solid durability make the mattress an attractive value option. A lengthy sleep trial and a lifetime warranty are further enticements.
That said, shoppers on a tighter budget might want to consider one of Nectar’s less expensive all-foam models.
The Premier Hybrid comes in all six standard mattress sizes. Measuring 13 inches thick, the mattress is slightly taller than average.
