The durability factor of the Kahuna Elite Massage Chair Arete is fairly average. It only comes with a 2-year standard warranty, whereas other similar models usually come with a 3-year warranty. Although, you might not need a warranty considering the outer materials are made of an extremely durable vegan leather that keeps the chair in great shape, and looking stylish, no matter how much use it.

The Kahuna Elite Massage Chair Arete costs $5,500, which is fairly average compared to similar models. It may come with better massage quality than some other 3D massage chairs, but there’s nothing that really takes it over the edge price-wise to make it an incredible deal. It’s priced appropriately in exchange for the features and longevity of the chair, but we’ve seen other models with more features that either cost the same, or a little less.

Sleep Galleria Perfect Factor Rating

The Elite Arete by Kahuna is a fairly average 3D massage chair. It does come equipped with plenty of technology features and a wide array of 3D massage options, but its cost comparison is really what brings the score down a bit for us here. If you aren’t looking for the most money savings, but you’re still wanting an excellent 3D massage chair, then this model should definitely be on your list for consideration.
