Sarai (or Serai) is an ancient Persian term for an inn and Toria is a nearby village; hence the Sarai at Toria. Welcome! 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; we also see it as a base for conservation activities and for wildlife and climate change research.

We opened on 15th October 2010. Our new season starts 1st October 2014
