Sarai (or Serai) is an ancient Persian term for an inn and Toria is a nearby village; hence the name Sarai at Toria. Located amidst agricultural land in unspoilt countryside, the Sarai at Toria spreads over nine acres of undulating land. With the river on one side and a small forest patch at the back, it provides many lovely corners for hideaway reading, relaxation and for private al fresco meals. The Sarai at Toria’s uniquely designed accommodation is situated on a beautiful riverside site, close to Khajuraho in Madhya Pradesh, India. It can be a destination in itself, as the surrounding area is full of wonderful history and natural beauty, and it is also conveniently located to fit into a number of central Indian itineraries. This luxurious but earth-friendly small retreat is envisaged as the founding component of a wider project that seeks to play a positive role in the economic and social development of the local area.
