When a set of sheets is labeled as “luxury,” I expect them to deliver supreme comfort, softness, and durability, and it seems that Luxor Linens Bali Bamboo Luxury Sheet Set is up to the challenge. Being a lifelong fan of cotton sheets, though, I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about my sheets being made of wood pulp (it’s a process), but Luxor Linens is changing my mind – and may change yours, too, unless you’re already well aware of the sumptuousness of these sheets. Do you still have questions about how these sheets can change your sleep life? Read on for all the details. I share my experience with these sheets, and I gathered some opinions from others who’ve slept on these sheets night after night and would gladly choose these linens again.

What to Expect from a set of Luxor Linens Bali Bamboo Luxury Sheets
My first impression of Luxor Linens was stellar, thanks to the ridiculously good-looking box my sheets were packaged in. All linens from this company seem to be packaged as if they’re boxes of gourmet chocolates or something. The ribbons, the logo, and the box itself are all high quality and made to impress. I was actually even more excited about my sheets based on the packaging. It’s like a promise that what’s inside is even better than the outer wrapping.
Once I got the product out of the package, I was pleasantly surprised: These sheets are luxuriously soft to the touch. I really wasn’t expecting that because I was so used to cotton feeling thick and crisp, but still soft.
The Bali Bamboo sheets, though, are super thin. Don’t get me wrong. They’re soft and silky, but thinner than I expected. I held up the gold sheets to my open window and I could mostly see through them. How would these sheets keep me warm on colder nights? Rather than question it, I gave it the old college try.
Unfolding the fitted one, I noted that the elastic was all around the entire sheet. That’s good news because the one thing I dislike more than scratchy sheets is a fitted one that won’t stay on my mattress. It was time for the true test: Would this fitted sheet fit over my thick mattress. Yes! Yes, it did. The sheet was snug and secure. Just because a company claims their deep-pocket sheets will fit a mattress up to 21 inches thick, even pillow top beds, doesn’t always mean it’ll work out the way you expect.
After slipping the last pillow into its case, I stepped back to admire my neatly made bed. The pillows fit perfectly in the envelope-style cases, which was nice. The embroidery was a nice touch, though not really my thing. I opted to have my initial added in monogramming, a nice little touch the company offers as an extra feature.
The flat sheet seemed a little on the short side. I have a queen-sized bed, and the flat sheet measures 88 inches wide and 100 inches long. My bed is about 80 inches long, so that leaves about 4 inches on either side. However, I’m used to sheets that are about 92 inches long. It doesn’t seem like much, but having 6 inches on either side makes a big difference when you sleep with a sheet and blanket hog.
The true test was going to be when I climbed into bed. I tend to keep the air conditioner going nearly all year long and a ceiling fan on high in my bedroom. I can’t stand sleeping hot. It turns out most of us need that dip into cooler temperatures to get into a deep sleep, anyway, so I’m on the side of science. Anyway, I’ve slept on sheets like these before. They’re thin and soft, and you’d expect them to barely touch your skin, but the next morning, you find yourself wrapped in a tornado of sweaty sheets that lied to you with their featherlight feel. The Luxor Linens Bali Bamboo sheets, though, did what they said they’d do. The sheets seemed to regulate my temperature throughout the night. I didn’t feel too hot at any point, but I also wasn’t freezing cold. Could these be the bed linens I’ve been looking for all my life? Maybe.
I slept on these glorious linens for several nights in a row, and not once did I feel overheated or cold. While the feel of the sheets is the most important factor in choosing bed linens, there’s still the consideration of how easy they are to care for and their durability.
So, the next test was to wash and dry them. It’s important to me that my sheets are easy to care for and so I expect to be able to toss them in my washer and then the dryer, and finally onto my bed. These bamboo sheets, though, require a bit more attention to their care. You’re going to want to use a gentle cycle and then dry them on low. It might even be best to line dry them. As I mentioned before, these sheets are quite thin and therefore a bit delicate. Although I noticed no pilling after a couple of washes, I did see a snag, which I know can easily lead to a tear.
Beyond the need to treat these sheets with kid gloves and the smaller size of the flat sheet, there’s not much else about them that could be considered a negative. They’re breathable sheets that keep me cool at night but don’t make me cold. As much as I like them, I’m considering buying a set for my guest bedroom.

Features & Benefits
Luxor Linens Bali Bamboo Luxury Sheet Set comes with a variety of features and benefits that you won’t get from a luxury set of cotton or polyester sheets. Read below to see which features might be most important to you.
Unlike most sheets that are either a cotton or cotton blend, these sheets are made from bamboo wood pulp. The process is quite involved, but bottom line is that the pulp is turned into a fiber that can be made into threads, which are then weaved into the fabric. It’s an eco-friendly way to make sheets, and bamboo is easy to come by.
The other awesome thing about bamboo is that the fabric made from it is naturally breathable. It wicks away moisture to keep you dry at night, which in turn keeps you warm or cool, as needed.

Most people have no allergic reaction to bamboo, but some have had reactions to cotton, which makes this a good choice for nearly everyone. Plus, bamboo sheets can ward off unwelcome guests, such as dust mites. Those little critters that are everywhere in your home and can cause you to sneeze or feel stuffy aren’t all that interested in bamboo sheets. Why? Dust mites prefer a warm, moist environment to call home. Bamboo shoots wick away moisture, which makes this a less hospitable place for those dust mites.
You probably already know that thread count isn’t that big a deal anymore. Manufacturers can claim 600 thread count sheets, when in fact, they’re using 3-ply threads to triple the thread count of sheets that are really 200. Luxor Linens doesn’t seem to engage in that deceptive practice, especially because they’re only claiming 300 thread count. And it turns out that 300 is kind of a sweet spot when it comes to bamboo sheets.
Plus, a lower thread count means a looser weave, which keeps the sheets more breathable. The higher the thread count, the tighter the weave, and you end up with heavy, thick sheets.
Technically, these sheets are easy to care for because you can wash them at home. I mean, you certainly don’t take them to a dry cleaner, so that makes it easier, right? Just be sure you choose a delicate cycle and tumble dry on low to mitigate any damage.
Who doesn’t love choice? The Bali Bamboo Luxury Sheet Set comes in a variety of colors, so you should be able to find a set that matches your bedroom. The colors available include beige, charcoal, chocolate, gold, ivory, navy, plum, pearl white, sage, sky, taupe, and wine.
That title might be a little misleading. These sheets aren’t totally wrinkle free, but they do resist wrinkles much better than any sheet I’ve put on my bed. You get an even better result if you pull these sheets out of the dryer before they’re totally dry and make your bed immediately.
These sheets come in full, queen, king, and California king sizes. They’re fairly standard when it comes to sizes. For example, the fitted sheet for a queen-sized set is 60×80. However, the flat sheet isn’t as generous as others out there. The good news is the fitted sheet has elastic all the way around (not just at the corners), so you’re likely to get a snug fit.
It’s uncommon to find sheets that are treated with aloe vera, but these bamboo sheets are. It could contribute to why they feel so incredibly soft the moment you unpack them. Whether the aloe vera infusion stays or not is up for debate.
You have the choice of adding your initials or name to your sheets with the monogramming option. There are several fonts and colors from which you can choose. I thought it was a nice touch!
What Others Had to Say
It helps to know what other consumers say about these sheets, so you know what the consensus is regarding Luxor Linens Bali Bamboo Luxury Sheet Set.
Overwhelmingly, customers who’ve bought these sheets agree that the Luxor Linens bamboo sheets are luxuriously soft. They feel like silk, but they aren’t slippery. They’re lightweight, and they sort of glide against your skin.
Caring for these sheets takes a little more attention than it does for cotton, but for the most part, they’re wash-and-wear sheets. They’re a bit thin and that could lead to snags and tears, as a few people have experienced.
Many people love the finishing touches of the stitching, especially on the pillows. The thicker stitch gives an air of luxury to your sheet set and that has nothing to do with the feel. No report of loose threads either.
The majority of people who bought these sheets agreed that they stayed cool at night but didn’t get cold when the temperature dropped, either. It seems that most people experienced temperature regulation from these moisture-wicking sheets.
Those who chose to get the monogramming seemed split on their opinions. Many people loved having their initials or monogram stitched onto their sheets and pillowcases, while many others didn’t like how heavy the embroidery was.
For the cost of these sheets, you’re getting affordable luxury, and most people agreed that it was a good value for what you pay. A handful of others felt the price tag was too high for the level of quality you’re getting.
The Luxor Linens Bali Bamboo Luxury Sheet Set offers several benefits for those who want to sleep soundly between ultra-soft, breathable sheets. Not only are these hypoallergenic and have antimicrobial properties, they are an eco-friendly choice. They’re sure to please most people who want a comfortable sleep every night. Of course, bamboo sheets aren’t for everyone. So, if you prefer a cool, crisp sheet, these are not the ones for you.
The fit of these sheets is generally good, especially with the fully elastic fitted sheet. You may find that the flat sheet is a little lacking in size width-wise. The fabric is quite thin, but it makes up for that by keeping you dry and warm or cool, depending on your body temperature.
