Cariloha is a well-known company that makes a wide range of bamboo products, including bedding options like bed sheets. They offer two different sets of sheets, the Classic and the Resort that provide different feels and sleeping experiences. Both sets can be machine washed and dried and come in a variety of colors, but I’ve highlighted the details that separate them so people can decide which set is best for them.

Pros and Cons of each sheet set

This video highlights the key pros and cons of each set.

Which to Choose…

  • People should choose Resort if they want to splurge on super soft sheets that have advanced stitching for extra durability.
  • People should pick Resort if their want a silkier feeling to their sheets.
  • People should choose Classic if they still want soft sheets but at a more moderate and affordable price.

The sheets are both incredibly soft and available in a variety of colors that a lot of consumers will really enjoy. Their care instructions are essentially the same and both wrinkle fairly easily if they are not placed onto the bed immediately after drying.

The Resort sheet set is softer thanks to the sateen weave of the fabric; While both sets of sheets feel lighter in comparison to their cotton counterparts, the Resort set is slightly lighter.

If details matter to certain people, they prefer sateen finishes and the durability that comes with box-stitched seams (and can handle a $239+ price tag), then the Resort Bamboo Sheet Set is right for them.

Cariloha Resort Bamboo Bed Sheet Review

Those who have budgetary concerns but still want the comforts of amazingly soft sheets should probably consider the Classic Sheet Set which is still pricey, but more affordable than the Resort set.
