The Sarai at Toria is a uniquely designed eco-lodge owned by ‘big-cat’ biologist Raghunandan Singh Chundawat and his wildlife photographer-writer and conservationist wife Joanna van Gruisen. Located off the Jhansi-Satna national highway in Madla on the banks of Ken River less than 2 km from Panna National Park, the lodge is a 30 minute drive from Khajuraho. 6 independent cottages are rustic and earth-friendly with traditional mud-based insulating construction, tin-and-grass roofing, and solar and biomass power. Ethnically designed in glossy, mineral oxide-finished floors with traditional Indian fabrics, each cottage offers en suite bathrooms, verandas and private courtyards, of which 4 cottages have tucked-away mezzanine bed spaces ideal for kids. Relish lantern-lit meals of home-style Indian dishes prepared by Chundawat himself.

The attention to detail at this lodge was amazing. One day we were the only guests there for lunch and they set up a table for us in the garden under a tree. We also liked that they were only a five minute drive to Panna National Park.
