Sunshine Guest House

Guesthouse in Tiruvannamalai

In a blissfully quiet spot 1km southwest of the main ashram area, this colourful new building fronted by gardens offers excellent value. Tasteful, spotless rooms, each styled after a Hindu god, give the feel of an Indian trinkets shop: print-design sheets, sequined fabrics, cane swing-chairs and in-room water filters. The upstairs hall is perfect for yoga. Fresh breakfasts cost ₹150.
