We stayed in the Sunshine Guest House for a single night and felt welcomed by Satyam. He is full of knowledge. He is more than willing to share and visit. It has a beautiful garden in the middle of the guest house and comfortable accommodation.


You will find in this guesthouse everything a traveler looks for: a great welcome, attentive personnel, spacious and clean rooms with a comfortable bed, a coach, AC, drinking water, and a well-equipped bathroom.

It’s a great place with friendly staff and a great view of mountains and lake.

Sunshine Guest House is a delightful and peaceful place to stay in Tiruvannamalai: a beautiful view of the Arunachala mountain, a quiet place without the noise of the center of Tiruvannamalai but at the same time very near the center.

—Isabel Lopes

The furnished rooms have a mattress, refrigerator, and water purifier. The interiors are in good taste.

Beautiful and peaceful.

Everything I wanted and more!
I can’t recommend this guesthouse highly enough. Everything I needed was right here – an incredible view of Arunachala mountain, a peaceful river scene at the back of the property, pro-active friendly staff, fridge, and water purifier in the room was enormous and tastefully decorated. The whole place feels very Zen.

Wonderful peaceful place. The rooms are bigger for family stay. Bicycles and mopeds are available for use. Typical South Indian village atmosphere.

“Let’s go home,” we said on the way back from the ashram every day.

This is a real gem in Tiruvannamalai.

—Guest Tel Aviv, Israel

Lovely, new, and spotless rooms, with a small kitchen and A/C, arranged around a leafy courtyard. A perfect retreat for Western visitors, with laundry service, friendly service, and even a reverse-osmosis water filter in every room.


Sunshine cottage is a gem of a find in Trivannamalai, located with a view of Mount Arunachala, but just out of the noise of town. If you are going to visit the Ramana Ashram or the area surrounding it, you could not find a better place to stay.

The fact that a portion of the profit goes to a local orphanage that they run is amazing as well. The hotel room has clean rooms, thoughtful amenities, and friendly staff.

We stayed a couple of nights at Sunshine Guesthouse. The room was very good, spacious, and very clean. The setting of the guesthouse had a great view over the Arunachala mountain. The owner was friendly and helpful as well as the staff, especially Raju, who goes out of his way to help guests. Overall a great stay!!

Great hotel!
Selection of different types of rooms, from simple to luxurious. Great feel, with the owner very helpful and accommodating. Satya went out of his way for me many times. You arrive as a traveler, leave feeling part of the family.
