We serve our delicious pizzas for dinner between 7-10 PM.
SARAYA ART GALLERY-
Walking around the Saraya Art Gallery is an exceptionally relaxing and calming experience. A place where you can focus on your senses, explore mindfully and disconnect for a time from the strains of everyday life. A beautiful opportunity to enjoy both art and fresh air at the same time.
A land management system that consciously and synergistically integrates agriculture and social design principles into the native ecosystem. It offers a practical and creative approach to the problems of diminishing resources and threatened life support systems the world now faces. The core principles of each of these systems is to, Take responsibility, Care for the earth, Care for people & Fair share.
VOLUNTEERING AT SARAYA-
If we attempt to define what Saraya is, it would be an eco-stay, gallery space and cafe. The word itself, however, means “to begin, to flow”, which is what we are constantly striving to do. Here at Saraya, we are continually pushing ourselves to establish spaces where people can come together to create, share and experience art, food and live in rhythm with nature. We depend on a constant stream of volunteers to help us achieve this. We welcome both long term and short term help.
