Don’t Just Rise – Shine! with Sleepyhead’s Best Bed Ever

Don’t Just Rise – Shine! with Sleepyhead’s Best Bed Ever

Breakers star jumps into new bed

Ekene Ibekwe testing out his new Sleepyhead Sanctuary bed.

New Zealand’s number one bed manufacturer Sleepyhead have ‘vamped’ up their popular Sanctuary range, producing a bed so fine even a vampire will wake feeling revived and refreshed after their best sleep in . . . 2,000 years.

The range has already been given the thumbs-up by towering new Breakers star Ekene Ibekwe whose sore back has disappeared since he jumped into his new Sanctuary bed.

Features of the new re-designed Sanctuary range is the renowned Sensorzone core. This combines the comfort and support of a traditional mattress with NZ-developed technology to provide an unparalleled level of luxury, comfort and pressure relief. The result is a reduction in tossing and turning and nasty aches and pains. Selected models feature the 3D Sensorzone core, FusionGel, Phase Change and Graphene comfort technologies which absorb and distribute excess heat from around the body and dissipate it down through the mattress. The end result is a bed so luxurious you will melt into it and feel the stresses of the day drift away – as depicted in the new Sanctuary TV ad which shows a vampire waking up refreshed and smiling, fangs and all.

Sleepyhead and NZ Comfort Group General Manager, Chris Taylor, says:

“At Sleepyhead we know a great sleep can completely transform the way you look and feel. In fact, it is the best beauty treatment your body can have. That’s why we’ve spent more than 80 years developing and improving our beds to ensure Kiwis have the best sleep possible

“Our new re-designed Sanctuary range uses world-leading technology developed right here in New Zealand and is undoubtedly our best bed yet. We are confident Kiwis won’t just rise – they will shine!”

That’s certainly true for New Zealand Breakers Centre Player Ekene Ibekwe who was one of the first people in New Zealand to test out the new Sanctuary range. At 2.06cm tall, the US-born Nigerian has never had a better night’s sleep.

“As athletes we need to get a good rest at night so we can re-energise and be fresh for the next day. Sleep is especially important the night before a big game and my Sleepyhead Sanctuary has given me the comfort and support for a great night’s sleep so I’m at my best on the court. I’ve definitely noticed a difference since switching to Sanctuary - I was after a firmer bed and now my aches and pains have disappeared!” says Ekene.

You can find Sleepyhead beds and the new Sanctuary range in any Beds R Us, Farmers or Smiths City store
