Quintessentially Mediterranean, effortlessly elegant, Hotel Botanico San Lazzaro is one of the most exclusive 5 star properties on the Amalfi Coast. On the hills of Maiori gazing out towards the sea, the hotel is a harmonious composition of graceful arches, shady loggias and sun-drenched terraces set in a magnificent botanic garden containing over 2000 species of plants.
Hand painted ceramics from Vietri, furniture custom-made by Tuscan cabinet makers, satellite television, high speed internet connectivity, and exclusive bathroom courtesy products by Designers Guild: Hotel Botanico San Lazzari's bedrooms and suites are the result of a sophisticated combination of tradition, comfort, and technology. Those looking for the ultimate in Mediterranean luxury should try to book the much sought-after "Premier Special Suite", complete with panoramic terrace, Jacuzzi and in-suite gym.
Guests dining in Hotel Botanico San Lazzaro's "Donna Clelia" restaurant enjoy delicious Neapolitan cuisine, served either in the elegant dining room or on the sweeping sea view terrace. An excellent range of cocktails and tasty snacks are available in the Grusonii Lounge bar.
Using the hotel's shuttle bus, guests quickly reach Maiori's Moorea Beach Club and the sea. Those unwilling to leave the comfort of the hotel will, no doubt, spend much of the day in the garden, lazing by the recently inaugurated swimming pool and fitness area.

A tiny coastal settlement traditionally inhabited almost exclusively by fishermen, agricultural workers, and their families, the peaceful little town of Maiori is one of the Amalfi Coast's best kept secrets.
Perched on a natural terrace from where it dominates the historic center, Hotel Botanico San Lazzaro combines faultless hospitality with a magnificent view of the bay. From Maiori, the legendary towns of Amalfi and Positano are just a short bus, car or boat ride away.
Ravello, Furore, Cetrara, Vietri sul Mare, Cava dei Tirreni and the city of Salerno are, likewise, situated within easy reach of the hotel. Only a little further away, the archeological areas of Paestum and Agropoli and the National Park of Cilento and Vallo di Diano are all well worth a visit. The city of Naples is just over an hour's drive away.
