In the heart of Maiori, nestled between history and beauty, lies the Hotel Botanico San Lazzaro, a historic hotel on the Amalfi Coast. Our story dates back to the 19th century, when Beniamino Cimini, a prominent member of one of the town’s most prestigious families, became Mayor of Maiori in 1860. His forward-thinking vision and love for the land sparked an agricultural revival for his region, employing some of his fellow citizens, who were facing economic hardships, in the construction of a building on his land property.

This property became the foundation upon which his grandchildren, Andrea and Beniamino Cimini, began, in the 1970s, the transformation into a welcoming hotel. After years of waiting and thanks to the dedication of Andrea and Angela Cimini, the current owners of this precious legacy, the Hotel Botanico San Lazzaro finally opened its doors in 2010.

Today, after 14 years, the Hotel Botanico is renowned as one of the best 5-star hotels on the Amalfi Coast, celebrated for its spectacular views over Maiori.


The Hotel Botanico is a precious mansion managed by a family that has dedicatedly and passionately passed down the art of hospitality through three generations of hoteliers from the Cimini family. It is an oasis of peace and tranquility, far from the bustle of Amalfi and Positano, where you can immerse yourself in the refined and chic atmosphere of a boutique hotel, enjoying an unforgettable stay, curated in every small detail.

The hospitality we offer is more than just a service: every stay with us is a journey into the past, akin to finding oneself in a grand old house, enriched with all the necessities and modern comforts. Ours is an invitation to share the beauty of a family tradition that warmly embraces the creation of a long-lasting bond, capable of enduring over time and leaving a pleasant memory of the moments shared with us.
