Lelo has done it again – they’ve improved upon Soraya 2 and are delivering a toy that does the most work for you. In this Lelo Soraya Wave review, we’ll explore how good this multi-purpose rabbit and g-spot vibrator is.

Lelo Soraya Wave is ergonomically designed, feels a joy to use, and lets you focus on the pleasure by giving you high quality internal and external vibrations together with come hither motion for your G-spot pleasure.
The Not So Good
With the come hither (Wave Technology) motion comes a price in reduced battery life (2hrs vs 4 hrs) and extra noise that won’t be great for someone whose top priority is discreetness.
Who is it for?:
- For someone who enjoys a bit of everything: clitoral, thrusting & nice G-spot stimulation
- If the quality of the vibrations is really important to you
- If you require and can afford the toy from the luxury segment of the industry.
- If you want a toy that does the most work for you.
Who is it not for?:
- It’s not for someone who cannot justify a $250-300 budget for a branded toy.
- It’s not for you if you prefer clitoral, not G-spot stimulation. In that case, a simple clitoral vibrator (or Soraya 2) will be a better choice.
What is Lelo Soraya Wave?
The Soraya Wave is a luxurious average-sized rabbit vibrator from Lelo’s Insignia line, so it’s both functional and a pleasure to look at.
This toy has an external vibrating arm for clitoral stimulation, a curved vibrating tip for targeting the G-spot, and WAVE-MOTION technology.
On top of the vibration stimulation, Soraya Wave has a moving shaft that massages and puts extra pressure on the G-spot with a come hither motion.
Combine that with the two vibrating arms and you’re in for some mind-numbing orgasms.
Soraya Wave Review: The First Impressions
My girlfriend worked hard to test this toy, and it’s a joy to describe her experience to you. The toy came in a beautiful package.
It was mixed with black and golden shades with a transparent case showcasing the midnight blue Lelo Soraya Wave.
Inside, we also found a few surprises—a water-based lube & a satin pouch for storage.
So we took it out, charged it…and had some time to look at the specs…
So How Does Soraya Wave Looks Specs Wise?
I decided to compare it against the Lelo Soraya 2, the model that looks exactly the same but has no Wave Motion (come hither).
Instead it has 12 vibration modes vs 8 of Wave.
What are the key differences? Lelo Soraya 2 vs Lelo Soraya Wave
Few things to bring to your attention are: usage time, noise levels, modes.
Everything in those two models is pretty much the same except the Wave Motion. And that G-spot targeting motion affects two things: the Wave’s motor will last 2 hours (instead of 4), and it’s also louder than Soraya 2.
The motor that does the come hither motion takes it’s toll.
But is it worth it?
Read on… we’ll soon find out.
So What’s The Price & Where Can You Buy It?
Lelo Soraya Wave isn’t cheap.
But you knew that already since Lelo is the most famous luxury sex toy brand.
As for the price, it will set you back 250-300 USD depending when you buy it.
In exchange, you get high-quality vibrations that don’t numb, Wave Motion technology, and of course, the brand. It’s Lelo we’re talking about here.
It is one of the pricier G-spot vibrators in the market, but nothing comes close to it.
The safest place to buy is directly from the Lelo website. It will guarantee that you’ll receive a 1-year warranty and free shipping.
Let’s Talk About Lelo Soraya Wave’s Design & Functionality
Look & Feel
Lelo Soraya Wave is made from soft matte silicone material and is available in 3 colors: deep rose, midnight blue & black.
It feels extremely nice to touch & look at it. A luxury feel.
However, you’ll also notice the ABS golden elements on the tip of the vibrator & and a golden hole in the handle (which is fun to play with by the way).
I have mixed feelings about the golden element at the tip.
It looks nice, but cleaning it will require extra attention, and scrubbing those gaps harshly might make the golden paint come off with time.
It’s not a deal breaker for sure, but a little detail.
And Here Are Other Little Things Make Soraya Wave Usage A Nice Experience
First of all, the toy is 100% waterproof. You can safely use it in the bath or shower even though its charger hole is not covered.
The three buttons are placed just perfectly, they are big enough, you don’t need to look at them during use. Simply slide your fingers over and you will easily get what is what.
Let’s Turn It On & Talk About Functionality
Soraya Wave has 8 individually adjustable modes for a customized experience.
When pressing +/- buttons interestingly it feels like turning up/down a continuous level. One press of a button won’t equal one jump in intensity. Instead, the vibrations slowly grow or fade.
This is great when you’re trying to find just the right vibration strength & adjustments are subtle.
As you press through the 8 main modes (using the middle vulva-like button) you’ll notice that Soraya Wave has 3 motors:
- Controls the MotionWave motion
- Controls the vibrations of the main insertable shaft
- Controls the vibrations on the clitoral rabbit vibrator
While you cannot decide which one to turn on/off, you can switch through the modes and find one that works for you. Then you adjust the intensity of that mode to just the way you want it.
It would be great if there would be extra control over each motor (through an app maybe ?!), but right now you just need to cycle through preset settings. Which is fine too.
Quality Of Vibrations
My girlfriend noticed a clear difference in the quality of the vibrations compared to other toys. First of all, Soraya Wave has an awesome range of vibrations starting from very light to STRONG.
The light vibrations are great if you are in for a long session of enjoying yourself or want to add extra buzz to thrusting. Even at the lowest settings, you can still feel a gentle pulse.
But even the most intense vibration settings didn’t numb my girlfriend. Instead, they were deeply rumbling all around the area.
She reached 3 beautiful climaxes (and that was not the limit, she said).
My Miss also mentioned how the bendy rabbit tip is just the right size and place to hit the clit. Many companies get this wrong too.
How Good Is Wave Technology?
Well… if my girlfriend needed to choose she would always pick Wave over Soraya 2.
But keep in mind that she absolutely loves G-spot stimulation together with a bit of clit action.
And that’s what Soraya Wave does well – it offers all those things.
A little bit of this and a little bit of that.
That come hither motion has only one speed, but honestly, it’s still a game-changer to the whole experience.
Usually, if you want a G-spot stimulation you need to work hard to bend and thrust the toy to get it right….not so with Soraya Wave:
By default, you get a bit of G-spot pressure, and this allows you to work a LOT less and enjoy a lot more.
And this alone makes Soraya Wave worth it.
That is, if you enjoy G-spot stimulation and want the full bundle.
Oh, and also it depends on how much G-spot stimulation you want. If you want a gentle massage – Wave Technology motion will give it.
However, if you want strong pressure, you’ll still need to work on it. The toy itself is quite light (0.4 lbs) so you’ll need to press the handle down to get more out of the Wave motion.
Less weight equals more force you need to apply yourself.
The vibrations themselves are really silent.
But with that Wave technology on, things change.
You see, the motor that bends the tip of the toy produces a characteristic sound… Sort of like a prosthetics bending. It is not very loud (even at the loudest setting it didn’t go over 50 dB), but it is still noticeable even when the toy is inserted.
So for people who really care about discreetness, you’ll need to prepare around it a bit. That said, if you put on some background music or play with it in a shower, you’ll be all good.
Charging and Battery Life
Soraya Wave has a rechargeable battery, which makes getting it ready for a play session easier.
It’s powered by a USB charging cable. Just plug it into your laptop or get your mobile phone adapter and plug it into the wall.
The toy gets charged in 2 hours, giving you up to 2 hours playtime (considering Lelo’s functions, you’ll probably be having A LOT of orgasms in those hours).
In Use: How Does It Feel Like?
After a fresh session of three beautiful orgasms these were the impressions:
Overall Soraya Wave is a joy to use – its design is intuitive, vibrations are high quality & G-spot motion hits just right.
You don’t need to figure out the right angles or connectivity, simply charge the toy and you are in for a fun ride.
Many G-spot focused toys are useless for pretty much everything else. But Soraya’s shape and the firmness is not too exaggerated, so it feels great to stroke with too.
Room for improvement… drawbacks?
It would be great to have an extra button to go back to the previous mode. Now, if you miss your favorite setting, you need to shuffle through all the other modes to get the right one.
Also, my girl would love to have manual control over those 3 separate motors. In the current Soraya Wave, you have a combination of the motors being turned on and off within the particular modes.
You cannot randomly decide to turn off the rabbit vibe while keeping the pattern. You need to find the right setting that has a rabbit turned off.
Wave has different intensities of the vibrations, but only one G-spot rub speed. While that one speed is well-picked, more would be desired.
From these three suggestions, only one (the lack of the extra button) has been an inconvenience. Despite the lack of manual control and extra speed for the G-spot sub, the overall impression is great.
This toy will make the playtime worthwhile and offer a well-rounded experience that you usually would only get from 3 different toys.
But here you get a bit of goodness of many different things in one.
How Easy To Clean & Durability
Since the toy is made from high-quality silicone with ABS elements you can clean it thoroughly without any special precautions.
It’s waterproof so you can either wash the Soraya Wave in warm soapy water or use an antibacterial sex toy cleaner.
The only challenging place to clean is the golden ABS material piece at the shaft of the toy. If you want to be thorough, use the toothbrush to clean the finer details, just avoid scraping there with fingernails.
Over time too much scraping will cause the golden paint to slowly come off. Be careful.
And remember, Lelo comes with 1-year warranty, and it’s a quality toy that is built to last.
What Makes Lelo Soraya Wave Unique from Other Sex Toys?
Speaking of innovation, Lelo’s “wave technology” is something that deserves a shout-out.
Soraya Wave also incorporates this technology, so it’s not like just any rabbit vibe out there.
Soraya Wave stimulates through vibrations AND a come hither motion of the shaft that massages and puts pressure on the G-spot.
The combination of these stimulations delivers unique and intense sensations and more powerful internal orgasms.
Would I Recommend It?
I (& my girlfriend) would definitely recommend this toy as the whole experience felt effortless – just grab it and use it. Soraya Wave does most of the work for you.
However I also know that if you’re on a budget this sex toy is a high expense, and maybe a simpler vibrator would be a better choice if you’re starting out.
Lelo Soraya Wave Alternatives
There aren’t really other great toys that have something similar like Motion Wave technology targeting the G-spot and stimulating it for you.
However if you don’t require extra G-spot attention, but still want to choose something From Lelo you could consider:
Lelo Soraya 2 gives 12 vibration modes (and currently is on sale on Lelo for $229)
Lelo Sona 2 is a great clitoral suction-focused toy.
If you want to know more about Lelo Sona, check our comparison between Sona and Cruise here.
There are plenty of other toys with a G-spot angle, however, and other rabbit vibrators that you can drive yourself for a lower price.
I guess the closest competitor that comes to mind is We-Vibe Nova 2, which comes for $100-150 and has two motors to vibrate both the clitoris and the G-spot.

Conclusion: Final Thoughts
Lelo Soraya Wave is a great multi-purpose sex toy that does a lot of things very well.
For G-spot stimulation fans, it’s a must & little sacrifices you give for battery life and noise are still totally worth it.
It has the potential to become the best LELO vibrator in your arsenal. And it’s sure to be one hell of an experience for vagina havers everywhere.
It’s a great to have toy, if you can afford the luxury price, that Lelo brand commands.
