We were in Tiruvannamalai last weekend for Girivalam(14km circumbulation around the sacred ARUNACHALA Hill on Pournami) and our extended family of 8 members stayed at Sunshine Guest House.We had booked well ahead anticipating Girivalam rush.Located on the Perumbakkam Road, away from the regular tourist rush areas, the rooms have a wonderful view of the ARUNACHALA Hill.I enjoyed sitting on the verandah and meditating on the Jagat Pitah and JagannMata.Ideal place to stay, if looking for a peaceful stay away from the maddening crowd.

Sunshine Guest House is a delightful and peaceful place to stay in Tiruvannamalai: beautiful view of the Arunachala montain, a quiet place without the noise of the center of Tiruvannamalai but at the same time very near of the center (1or 2km).

Room were spacious, clean and well accomodated, hot water in bathroom, a covered roof for yoga with a beautiful view on the montain, internet available.

Sathish, Rajju and the other members of the staff took care of us very nicely and make our trip in Tiruvannamali very enjoyable!

You will find in this guesthouse everything you need for the traveller: You will feel at home and you will not want to leave this place!

Sunshine Guest House is one of the best places to stay in Tiruvannamalai. It all starts with a great view of Arunachala. The rooms are spacious, well appointed, and each is differently decorated. There are nice large bathrooms wit hot water, AC available, and restaurant onsite, and a covered roof where you can sit and meditate looking at the sacred mountain.

During the season there are often yoga classes onsite, and they can arrange any touring you need, local and throughout India. They are also happy to arrange an airport pickup when you arrive in Chennai. They make you fee welcome and at home.

The owners, Sathya and Corrine take good care of the guests. This place is a real jewel!

The warmth of Sunshine Guesthouse reached us before we even saw it. Our ride from the airport to the hotel, the welcome call and the lovely drive the next morning, was all arranged by our hosts Sathya & Corrine. We were warmly greeted on arrival at the guest house and made to feel at home. Chia tea on the thatch covered patio, while we got acquainted with our hosts, staff and other guests. Our room was cheerful, spacious, clean and well appointed. The fresh flower leis were a lovely touch.
The gardens were delightful and very well kept. The large thatched, screened dining room was the gathering place for meals, internet, and companionship. The rooftop was a great place to enjoy the spectacular view, do some yoga or just meditate your cares away. Even the power interruptions brought beauty to this place. Our first night I saw my first firefly in the garden when the power went out.
The staff prepared delicious meals, with Sathya making culinary contributions from time to time. Special requests were cheerfully accommodated.
Sathya arranged rides, gave directions and general advice on almost any topic. He is a very entertaining and informative tour guide, who brought special meaning to the places we visited. We always felt safe and well cared for. India is a busy, beautiful, intense place and at times, it can be overwhelming. We cherished our peaceful mid day rest in our cool room with a soft breeze blowing through the colorful curtains. A delightful stay indeed!

We have been Tiru a number of times and stayed at Ramana's ashram plus Sparsa resort which is nice but nothing compares to the family feeling at Sunshine Guesthouse. The people and the food is fabulous and the view of Arunachula from every room is unsurpassed. If you are looking for a sweet stay in Tiru Sunshine is the place. You will feel at home as soon as as you walk through the gate. We felt very taken care of and will return.

Thank you Sunshine Guest house-you make India fell like home! Great ambiance, clean and welcoming-thank you-what a relief after 12 hours of travel! Sathya and Corrine are great hosts and they went out of their way to make sure I had what I needed and that I knew where I was going. India can be overwhelming at times and the Sunshine Guest House was a perfect landing spot.
