  • Prems place is super comfortable and simply feels like home. The food in his rooftop restaurant is amazing and the location is very convenient. Prem is a very open and fun guy. Totally recommend!

  • Prem is very gentle, helpful and always easy to reach. The studio is not very spacess, but modern, very clean and with excellent matress. We felt very good during our 10 nights stay. We particulary like the integrated water filter, thus you don't need to buy, carry and waste ugly plastic water bottles. The studio is also in a nice and quite area. The roof top restaurants has yummy food.

  • I am glad I stayed here and was very happy with the room. It was particularly good to have plenty of light coming in. I also appreciated having a gas stove and reverse osmosis filtered water in the room. That certainly made life a lot easier for me. Prem also sorted me out with a taxi from the airport. Thanks Prem!

    Kevin2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Prem is the best. He completely takes care of you. He arranged for the taxi, changed currency, carried luggage, anything that you need. I asked if I should change dollars into rupees at the airport for the taxi and he said no I will take care of it, which he did. He said the airport charges too much tax so he gave us a good rate. We never had to use an ATM because Prem was always available for money exchange. We arrived in the middle the night, he greeted us and showed us to our rooms (and paid for the taxi). He had a beautiful little restaurant on the top floor that we didn’t realize was there that overlooked Arunachala. We didn’t realize it closed at seven and on the way up the stairs we ran into Prem leaving. We said we could go to another restaurant but he insisted that he would re-open the restaurant and he cooked us a wonderful meal. He said after serving us, just turn the lights out and close the door. I couldn’t say more about Prem, he completely takes care of all your needs, young or old. I am in my 70s and he treated me just as well as he did the young women.

  • Wonderful Stay, Prem is a wonderful persone and the rooftop restaurant has some delicious dishes. I Highly recommend it and I will come back again.

    Gabriele2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Really great space - welcoming, clean, bright - close to Ramana’s ashram which is perfect. Prem is lovely and friendly, a great host - and has a fab cafe upstairs with yum food and drinks!

    Izzy2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect venue for my retreat. It became my home away from home. Prem was essentially my private chef and concierge, but more importantly my friend. This was my fourth time in India and the first time without a stomach upset! I ate exclusively at his rooftop restaurant with spectacular views of Arunachala and he was happy to modify any meal to my liking. Even trying out my recipe suggestions. Prem exchanged my money at an unbelievably good rate, booked my taxi and helped with my laundry. I was a five minute walk from Ramanasramam, which I visited most days. It was sad to leave, but I have very fond memories to take with me. Thank you!

The place has a very nice and positive vibe and is close by to Ramana Ashram. Getting a Scooty is so helpful and the hosts go out of their way to ensure that we have a great experience. Really enjoyed staying here and meeting this family. Hope to see them again.

They do provide scooter which can make things lot easier to roam around the town. They have electric cook top, basic vessels and washer/dryer in the room. The place is safe and you can see "Arunachala" right from their house. I enjoyed nice clean and gecko free place :)

    Ashwin2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much Thilakavathi! Lakshmi Nivas was the best: spacious, safe, restful and cooling.

    Sébastien2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Value for money ! Near to Ramana Ashram! Independent house with Ashram sort of ambiance Hospitality was not excellent! Communication was great by Ms thilakavathi. I would highly recco her place

    Rahul2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic place to stay at Tiruvannamalai, especially if you are travelling as a family with your own vehicle. We absolutely loved the house and it's garden. With everything available at doorstep (milk, curd veggies) from small town vendors, and a super market nearby, the place is super value for money. Within walking distance of Yogiram Suratkumar ashram.. though a bit inskirts for those with out their own vehicle. The host was also highly welcoming and courteous.

    Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu, India

    Peace or Shanti (to which the Verandah belongs) along with the other houses in tree-filled Bose Compound, was built in the 1930s by my great grandfather, Aurobindo Bose, a devotee of Ramana Maharishi. Bose Compound is a 2min walk away from Ramana Ashram where one can also begin the climb up Arunachala. We're located on the Girivalam road with Nilgiris, small shops & eateries close by. It's an old place that's very open to nature-- Those looking for a swanky modern set up will be disappointed!
    Green, tree filled spaces with many birds and animals. Old houses built to last with thick walls that keep our rooms cool in the summer. Langurs and peacocks passing through the garden in a common sight.
    The neighbourhood is very conveniently located since it is right opposite the Ramana ashram and the path up the mountain. It's also close to the post office, Yogi Ramsuratkumar's and Sheshadri ashram. There are a number of supermarkets and bakeries and restaurants very close by.
  • Beautiful peaceful and restful place. Tastefully decorated and unpretentious. Tara was extremely acomoda ring and helpful.

    Adam2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • SIMPLY GREAT! Very Beautiful place to stay in Tiruvannamalai! Everything was amazing! The room, the garden, the position! Tara is always there when you need! I really recommend it! Thank you!

    Maddalena2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and rustic rooms nestled in the middle of trees and sounds of birds make this an oasis gem next to busy road and marketplace. Of course location near Ramanashram makes this even more compelling.

    Maneesh2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place, great location, everything was perfect. I highly recommend staying at the Bose Compound!

    Emma2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome!

    Irina2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • The Bose compound somehow reminds of Auroville and is a natural setting, and is a contrast to the properties in the vicinity of this place which are typically the hotel types. There is a lot of privacy, and the room was very functional, tastefully done and clean and the host is very responsive.

    Vivek2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • A heritage retreat compound dating from the early days of Ramana. Very close and easily connected to the ashram, giving a feel and presence for what the early days may have been like. The spaces are full of heart, history, and elegant simplicity close to the era, with simple modern conveniences. Tara is a wonderful host and connection to those early days of Bagawan, also very helpful for the practicals around Tiru.

    C2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • We decided to travel to Tiruvanamalai after checking this place in Airbnb. It was totally worth it. The Bose compound itself has some amazing history. The room is wonderful, amazing trees, peacocks and lot of awesome dogs :)

Further afield, there is much to explore, Arunachala( it's the name of a holy hill associated with the god Shiva). Ramana Maharshi said that other holy places such as Kailash, Varanasi and Rishikesh are sacred because they are the abodes of Lord Siva whereas Arunachala is Lord Siva himself. There are several cafes such as Aakash inn, Dreaming Tree, Tasty Cafe, German bakery and Hotel Auro Usha, as well shops and even a supermarket.

    Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu, India

    Situated less than a km from Ramana ashram. Very closeby Shri yogi ramsuratkumar ashram. Fully furnished house with TV, WIFI, KITCHEN, POWERBACK UP and above all an excellent view of the holy arunachala from the house. Kitchen is equipped with basic utensils, pans, stove, mixie and micro wave oven, RO system, chimney and Refrigerator. New construction with parking space for one small car/2 wheelers.
    Sadhana Kuteer is a spiritual cottage for your peaceful sadhana activities. There is tiny kitchen with basic amenities like gas stove, micrwave, ricecooker, mixie, refrigerator and pans and vessels, which is more than suffice to take care of your satwic food. The top floor (ff) has a beautiful little sitting area (or yoga area) with an enchanting view of Arunachala.
    The neighbourhood is a quiet residential area. it takes a 10 min walk to reach here from ramana ashram. Sri yogi ramsurat kumar ashram is 5 mins walk.
  • It was a real pleasure to stay at Sadhana Kuteer for the month of January, 2020. Neeraja provided plenty of information about Tiruvannamalai and area, and Arun the caretaker was available whenever needed. It's an easy 20 minute walk to Ramana Ashram and grocery shopping, there are good restaurants in the area within 20 minutes as well. Sadhana Kuteer is comfortable, spacious, well-lit, with good ventilation, fans and air conditioning. There's one bedroom & ensuite bathroom upstairs and another bedroom & ensuite on the main floor. There's also a handy extra bathroom, and a day-bed to stretch out on in the living room. The kitchen and adjacent eating/sitting area are quite serviceable, especially for two, and we alternated between meals at home and meals out. Fridge, stove, hot water were great. We had good weather for our visit and took walks on the country roads nearby and especially enjoyed sitting on the upstairs balcony/deck viewing nearby Arunachala. An excellent home to spend time during the day, as well as return to for a restful sleep at night. Highly recommended to make the most of your time at Tiruvannamalai. Thank you Neeraja and Arun.

    James2020-02-03T00:00:00Z

    Jehanathan2018-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Neeraja was very accessible & accommodating with our early checkin/ late checkout. The house is beautiful & we could have darshanam of Arunachala the first thing in the morning, from the bed itself! Ramanashramam was within a 15 min walk, we had a wonderful girivalam, arunachala darshanam and multiple ashram visits during our stay. Amenities were good esp. the RO, well equipped kitchen, some choicest spiritual books and the mosquito mesh in all windows. Bed linen was spotless clean. We look forward to visiting again. Thanks Neeraja!

    Ajay2018-12-09T00:00:00Z

    Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu, India

    Spectacular view of the mountain from the terrace and balcony. The residence is 500 meters from the Ramana Ashram, located in Ramana Nagar. Couple of Blocks away from Five elements restaurant and Shiva Sakthi Ashram.
    The apartment consists of living room, kitchen with fridge, Gas stove and utensils, bedroom with high quality queen mattress, bathroom with shower and hot water, terrace, balcony. Bed linens and towels is available. Living room connected to the kitchen and bathroom. One of the main considerations is to bring in light & capitalize on natural ventilation. It is perfect for those seeking a quality experience in a peaceful, private setting.
    Power of Arunachla: Lord Shiva says: Though in fact fiery, my lack-lustre appearance as a hill on this spot is an act of grace for the maintenance of the world. I also abide here as the Siddha. Within me there are many glorious caves filled with all kinds of enjoyments. Know this. Action naturally binds the entire world. One’s refuge (from such bondage) is this glorious Arunachala by seeing which one becomes itself. What cannot be acquired without great pains – the true import of Vedanta (viz. Self-realization) – can be attained by anyone who looks at (this hill) from where it is visible or even mentally thinks of it from afar. I, the Lord, ordain that those who reside within a radius of three yojanas of this place (Arunachala) shall attain union (with the Supreme) which removes bondage even in the absence of initiation, etc. Sri Ramana Ashram: is the ashram which was home to modern sage and Advaita Vedanta philosopher Ramana Maharshi from 1922 until his death in 1950. It is situated at the foot of the Arunachala hill, to the west of Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu, where thousands of seekers flocked to be in his presence. His samadhi shrine continues to attract devotees from all over the world. Open Daily 5am-12:30pm/2-9pm. Walking around the hill (Giri Pradakshina): ‘Pradakshina’ has a typical meaning. The letter ‘Pra’ stands for removal of all kinds of sins; ‘da’ stands for fulfilling the desires; ‘kshi’ stands for freedom from future births; ‘na’ stands for giving deliverance through Jnana.” Really, it is difficult to describe the pleasure and the happiness one gets by this Pradakshina. The body gets tired, the sense organs lose their strength and all the activities of the body become absorbed within. It is possible thus to forget oneself and get into a state of meditation. As one continues to walk, the body automatically gets harmonized as in the Asana state. The body therefore becomes improved in health. Besides this, there are several varieties of medicinal herbs on the hill. The air that passes over those herbs is good for the lungs”. Skandasramam: This lovely tree-shaded hermitage on the Hill overlooking the Big Temple is where Bhagavan lived from 1916 to 1922; Virupaksha Cave has the shape of the sacred “Om” and contains the samadhi of Sage Virupaksha. Bhagavan Sri Ramana lived here from 1899 to 1916. Both caves are historical sites preserved and maintained by Sri Ramanasramam for the benefit of visitors. Daily: 8am-4:00pm.

    Vinod2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for a month at Sai's house and it was all we expected and more. The apartment was spotlessly clean, with all that is needed, and Sai's parents received us and were regularly checking that all was good and whether we needed anything. The house is a good 25 minute walk from town, and they provided a two-wheeler to go back and forth (we ended up mostly walking or taking tuk-tuks anyway). Very good place and excellent hospitality!

    Roger2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place. Absolute value for money. I will surely recommend this to others.

Further afield, there is much to explore, Arunachala( it's the name of a holy hill associated with the god Shiva). Ramana Maharshi said that other holy places such as Kailash, Varanasi and Rishikesh are sacred because they are the abodes of Lord Siva whereas Arunachala is Lord Siva himself. There are several cafes such as Aakash inn, Dreaming Tree, Tasty cafe, German bakery and Hotel Auro Usha, as well shops and even a supermarket.

  • The place is beautiful, clean and in a great location. It was so nice that I extended my stay and was sad to leave. It's a little safe place to escape feeling like your in India, but rather back home sipping a coffee. Bala was helpful with any request, like getting water or a taxi. He also replied very fast and was always friendly. It was nice to know after booking, all I had to do is show up and he was there to welcome me to my new home away from home. I was a solo female traveler this time but I didn't feel alone or unsafe staying here. I will come back, and knowing the city now, I would still pick his place as my first choice. This place is much better than a hotel by far.

    Sue2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • If this place is free for the dates you need, just book it. It would be hard to find a nicer place in such a great location. It is clean, comfortable, safe and in a great area.

    Sue2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place, quiet, clean and well equipped. Excellent location and rental in accordance with the description. I will come back and I have already advised.

    Laurence2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Bala is an unbelievably cool and efficient host. He does his talking through his actions (He is the quiet type). His facilities are incredibly comfortable and there was nothing more I could have asked of him. His place way exceeded my expectations, considering the quality (or lack thereof) of other places I have stayed at. To those reading this review, I say go to Bala's place unhesitatingly. There is not one iota of exaggeration in this review.

    Adil2019-05-16T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful accommodation quite close to Ramanashram. Beautiful apartment and well maintaine. Bala was very friendly and helpful right through out the stay.

    Vidyashankar2019-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment and host are perfect in every way. We (two adults, one child) stayed two nights, three days. It is very spacious and all the amenities you need is provided. It really takes 5 min to walk to Ramana ashram.

    Durgarajesh2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very clean and well maintained. I stayed here for 10 days and had absolutely no issues with anything. The hospitality I received impressed me as well!

    Raghuram2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Janarthanan is a wonderful being. We stayed in the house for 3 days and it was effortless. I think the focus of Janarthanan is to make their guest's comfortable and he did so with ease to our group. We loved the place. The place has a master bedroom (with AC), a hall , a kitchen and an open terrace (we used it extensively for silent reflection in the morning). Auto's are available at a 2-3 minute walk . It's a rare find and we will definitely come again on our next visits to Thiruvanamalai :)

    Gopal Ji2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • The stay was very comfortable. The house was sparkling clean, prompt communication from the host & over all the place was beyond my expectation. We actually reached the place at 11pm. But, still Mr. Jana had so much patience.

    Hendrik2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Praveen's place is very conveniently located near Ramanashram, yet away from the hustle-bustle of the main street. I had reached very early in the morning at 4 am and even though check-in time was way later, Praveen's parents offered me one of their private rooms at their home to rest. The place is very clean and has a cute terrace with an amazing view of Arunachala hill. All the cafes are walkable from Praveen's place. It is an extremely safe place for solo female travelers and it will definitely be my first preference whenever I'm in Tiruvannamalai.

    Sreemoyee2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Nice room. Clean, the air conditioner works fine, the boiler did not give out hot water, but it’s so hot there. Wifi does not work in the room, but outside is not very convenient - mosquitoes eat.

    My apartment is located at the center of town, Not more than 5 minutes walking distance away from the Sri Ramana Ashram. Couple of Blocks away from the Shiva Sakthi Ashram.
    The apartment consists of living room,High speed internet, kitchen with fridge, Gas stove and utensils, good quality spring mattress, bathroom with shower and hot water, terrace with Mountain View. Bed linens and towels is available. Living room connected to the kitchen and bathroom. One of the main considerations is to bring in light & capitalize on natural ventilation. It is perfect for those seeking a quality experience in a peaceful, private setting.
    Power of Arunachla: Lord Siva says: Though in fact fiery, my lack-lustre appearance as a hill on this spot is an act of grace for the maintenance of the world. I also abide here as the Siddha. Within me there are many glorious caves filled with all kinds of enjoyments. Know this. Action naturally binds the entire world. One’s refuge (from such bondage) is this glorious Arunachala by seeing which one becomes itself. What cannot be acquired without great pains – the true import of Vedanta (viz. Self-realization) – can be attained by anyone who looks at (this hill) from where it is visible or even mentally thinks of it from afar. I, the Lord, ordain that those who reside within a radius of three yojanas of this place (Arunachala) shall attain union (with the Supreme) which removes bondage even in the absence of initiation, etc. Sri Ramana Ashram: is the ashram which was home to modern sage and Advaita Vedanta philosopher Ramana Maharshi from 1922 until his death in 1950. It is situated at the foot of the Arunachala hill, to the west of Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu, where thousands of seekers flocked to be in his presence. His samadhi shrine continues to attract devotees from all over the world. Open Daily 5am-12:30pm/2-9pm. Walking around the hill (Giri Pradakshina): ‘Pradakshina’ has a typical meaning. The letter ‘Pra’ stands for removal of all kinds of sins; ‘da’ stands for fulfilling the desires; ‘kshi’ stands for freedom from future births; ‘na’ stands for giving deliverance through Jnana.” Really, it is difficult to describe the pleasure and the happiness one gets by this Pradakshina. The body gets tired, the sense organs lose their strength and all the activities of the body become absorbed within. It is possible thus to forget oneself and get into a state of meditation. As one continues to walk, the body automatically gets harmonized as in the Asana state. The body therefore becomes improved in health. Besides this, there are several varieties of medicinal herbs on the hill. The air that passes over those herbs is good for the lungs”. Skandasramam: This lovely tree-shaded hermitage on the Hill overlooking the Big Temple is where Bhagavan lived from 1916 to 1922; Virupaksha Cave has the shape of the sacred “Om” and contains the samadhi of Sage Virupaksha. Bhagavan Sri Ramana lived here from 1899 to 1916. Both caves are historical sites preserved and maintained by Sri Ramanasramam for the benefit of visitors. Daily: 8am-4:00pm.
  • Bala is a great host. He speaks good English, very respectful, and accommodating, and was communicating very well before and during my stay. The flat had everything you might need for a short stay- fridge, little stove top and some dishes and pots and pans. They provided all the necessities- soap, toilet paper, kitchen towel and bath towel. There is a hot water heater in the bathroom, so you can take hot and warm showers. The location is great, the only thing- it was noisy because of the construction going on near by, but they might be done building by the next season, if so- the location is nice because near Ashrams and right in town, but not on the noisy street. So it's a happy medium. I would come back again.

    Elena2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed my stay here. It is a great location, very close to the Ramana Ashram, but in a quiet lane away from the big road. All the little things one might need during their stay were there, seems like they have been added to according to the feedback of prior guests. Also every single window is covered with nets, so no moskito issues which is great.

    Lilly2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Green House is very well located, 10 minutes walk from the Ashram and the main road with shops and rickshaws. The neighborhood is quiet and full of charm. You can find nice little restaurants (favorite for the Tasty Cafe!) And shops. The apartment is nice, secure, very functional, you can cook without problem. The roof terrace with its extraordinary view of the hill Arunachala is the greatest asset of the accommodation. We were warmly welcomed by Bala's father, Murgugan, who is incredibly kind, always available, ready to respond to our requests. We highly recommend!

    Joëlle2019-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • Bala is a great host, very friendly and always helpful. The apartment is very clean and has everything you need. The location is quiet and not far from the Ramana Ashram. There is also a rooftop terrace with great views of the Arunachala. I felt very well in Green House.

    Thomas2019-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Bala is the perfect host, he goes the extra mile to make you feel at home. His space is clean and beautiful. From the rooftop you can see Arunachala hill.

  • Clean, spacious, walkable distance from Ramanasramam as advertised.. Respect for privacy is something we do not usually get at other places but we were pleasantly surprised and happy to get that here. Bala was always reachable and quick to answer any questions. Highly recommend for others and we sure want to make this our first preference of stay for every visit to Tiruvannamalai.

    Ram2018-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • Balas place is close to Ramana Ashram and the dreaming tree cafe down a quiet lane. It was peaceful and private, everything as described and clean & tidy. Bala was a great host and left us alone as we wanted, but was quick to respond to any questions. He was also super understanding when we misread the house rules regarding parking our motorbike. The house has hot water and ceiling fans, no AC, fridge and western bathroom. Great place to stay, we'd recommend Bala again

  • This is a perfect place to eat sleep and meditate. Thoughtful touches, sparkling cleanliness and local help with divine views of the sacred Arunachala, this is an apt place in the abode of Ramana. Will definitely visit on another time.

    Vivek2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • We watched the fire works and saw the summit of Arunachla lit for Deepam from the roof top at Monisha's place. Surrounded by small farms and away from the bustling centre of town this apartment was bliss. Raja Singh was a great help with all matters and the use of the scooty was exactly what we needed to zip in and out of Thiruvannamalai. Thank you for the comfort Hospitality!

    Lincoln2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • A very nice private room in a shared suite. If you’re willing to rent a scooter (at a very reasonable rate!) and drive 20 minutes into town, this is a lovely place to stay! Very clean. Monisha is an awesome host and was completely helpful with everything we needed.

    Liv2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Serenity all over, comfy n available just when you need help; no interferences at all.

    Kay2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • It is a clean and a peaceful place located in calm surroundings The hospitality is good The host answered all the queries promptly and guided us through to the facility There is a caretaker who is very cordial and responds immediately to any requests Kitchen had all the amenities Only drawback is It is a bit inside ~1 - 1.5 km from the main road and this location is preferable if you have a personal vehicle

    Satish2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Mount View was a very pleasant experience for us. Firstly, it offers a view of the holy mountain. Secondly, the place is clean. Thirdly, since the spot is in the outskirts of the town, one gets to enjoy silence and fresh air. Fourthly, Monisha has made it sure that her guests are well taken care of. There is a kitchen as well. A great help if you need a quick cup of coffee or some home made food.

    Sonia2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • The Place is well located in peace with exotic view of Annamalai Hill. Especially Panoramic view of hill in mornings is awesome. Though says as Country side but all modern facilities are available. Well furnished Kitchen gives an edge to have home made food economically. Ample of free space gives the relief from city/town congestion, fresh air. Added advantage is availability of 2 wheeler on very minimal rental price gives us the freedom of travel when travelling only 2 people not to mention the headache of looking for parking places is no more. Best tips, advice given by Monisha & Ramunujan who are well aware of local traditions and culture will give us a clear picture of Thiruvannamali. All

    The Orange Room in Purity, along with the other houses in Bose Compound, was built in the 1930s by my great grandfather, Aurobindo Bose, a devotee of Ramana Maharishi. Later, it was improved by my father to look the way it does today. Bose Compound is 2min away from Ramana Ashram where one can begin the climb up to Arunachala mountain. We're on the Girivalam road, part of the Pradakshina route. There's a Nilgiris next door, the Ramana supermarket, as well as small coffee shops & eateries.
    The Orange room is in Purity cottage and is self contained with it's own bath, a desk and a sitting area equipped with a small fridge and water kettle for tea or coffee. It's quiet and if you need an AC has one, though the old Madras roof and thick walls generally keep things reasonably cool.
  • This is my second visit to Tara's place.. I ve reviewed it already.. Great place to stay..

  • I’m in love with Tara’a place! It’s a historic sweet place nestled in a beautiful garden and nature surrounding with lots of ancient magic and just a 1 min walk away from Ramana’s Ashram and great places for food!

  • Good flat, quite clean, full of natural light, very quiet with the 2 bedrooms with a view to a tree garden, good location at 5 mn from Ramanashramam, hot water in the bathroom, and Prem is very nice and welcoming. The roof top has an amazing view on Arunachala ! There is a fridge which is very convenient to cook ourselves ! The only one thing is that the kitchen utensils are a little bit limited, but you can ask Prem What you need if you want to cook yourself and he will give you.

    Catherine2019-11-20T00:00:00Z

The location is peaceful and also a short walk to the ashrams, great restaurants and stores, and Arunachala, via the back of Sri Ramana’s Ashram. I would love to stay here again. I enthusiastically recommend it to anyone visiting Tiruvannamalai.

    The Red Room in Purity, along with the other houses in Bose Compound, was built in the 1930s by my great grandfather, Aurobindo Bose, a devotee of Ramana Maharishi. Later, it was improved by my father to look the way it does today. Bose Compound is 2min away from Ramana Ashram where one can begin the climb up to Arunachala mountain. We're on the Girivalam road, part of the Pradakshina route. There's a Nilgiris next door, the Ramana supermarket, as well as small coffee shops & eateries.
    The Red room is in Purity cottage and is self contained with it's own bath, a desk and a sitting area equipped with a small fridge and water kettle for tea or coffee. It's quiet and the old Madras roof and thick walls generally keep things reasonably cool even in the summer.
  • Surreal experience.

    Murali2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Bose Compound, within which the Red Room is located, is a lovely wooded enclave a short hop away from Ramashram. I was there during Full Moon, when the road is full of devotees performing the Girivalam or the walk around Arunachala. Despite all the activity, hardly any trace of that reaches you, once you are inside Bose Compound. The rooms themselves are well spaced out within the compound - so there is more than adequate privacy. The moment you step out, you will find places to eat that could suit any budget. Good restaurants offering vegan and international cuisine are also a short walk like the highly rated Dreaming Tree Cafe. So are supermarkets like Ramana Supermarket and Nilgiris which stock vegan, gourmet and organic foods. The room itself has been thoughtfully stocked with a mini refrigerator, an electric kettle and supplies for making yourself a tea or a coffee. Whether you are in this sacred space for Girivalam or Ramanashram - great space as a base!

    Ramji2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Am a frequent traveller.. This is my first booking with Airbnb and in Bose Compound.. The place is completely serene and calm.. Tara and the people who work in the compound are always ready to help with our needs though much help wasn't needed at all.. The compoundis filled with lot of trees and shrubs and felt out of the world.. I recommend this place✌

    Bhuvan2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed for 4 nights in February. Found it to be an enjoyable stay near to Ashram and cafes. Good place to hang out or do some work. rooms are mostly ground floor with private veranda, nice period / vintage feel to the whole compound. Service is pleasantly non-intrusive. A good place for people who dont need unnecessary luxury. The compound entrance is located on a main road, but there is sufficient distance along a walkway to the actual compound from the road to keep away the traffic noise. Will stay here again when in TV Mallai next time.

    Wolf2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place for arriving in Tiruvannamalai. Just next to Ramana ashram but very silent and peaceful. The hosting comes from the heart and the place is very cozy and comfortable.

    Fabrizio2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • It is very beautiful place. Lot of greenery just next to a highway. Difficult to imagine such a beautiful place exist next to a busy road. Will consider to stay in this place again.

    Loic2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely homestay with a room seperate to the main house (located on the first floor). Loved the small street off the main road Raghavan and family house is located in. Utterly charming and full of the colours and atmosphere that makes India incredibly magnetic. Loved walking to Ramana Ashram early in the morning and watch the small shops around coming to life while walking along the sound of the morning Pujas in the several temples on the way - makes it a comfortable 30 minutes walk. The sacred hill of Arunachala is also closely seen which totally adds to making the walk even more picturesque. The big Shiva temple also is on the way. With a rickshaw it is a quick 5-8 min ride from Ashram. Many people also rent bicycles so distance not an issue. I received a very warm welcome and Raghavan and his family were very accommodating with my check-in and check-out time. The room is spacious and comfortable. It has en-suite bathroom and a fridge in a seperate room by the main entrance door and also has air-conditionning. Recommend without hesitation. Thank you for the lovely stay .

    Aurelie2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Host Narayanan sir is a perfect gentleman and when we call him on a any help he always responds with a friendly and warmth note. The Place is near to temple North entrance and Ramana Ashram is walkable too.

    Venkatesh2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Staying here was one of the best decisions we made on our trip to Arunachala. We came as strangers and left feeling like we were family. We feel very blessed to have had this experience. We were well fed by Raghavan's wonderful mother and his father Narayan enriched our experience with his keen insights and willingness to take us under his wing and show us around. The entire experience was truly invaluable and we couldn't recommend this place enough.

    William2019-11-15T00:00:00Z

    Dilip2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best Airbnb experiences so far. Raghavan and Narayanan uncle treated me as a family member with utmost care throughout my stay at Thiruvannamalai. If you are in Thiruvannamalai, make sure you get the guidance and help from Raghavan or Narayanan uncle for your trip and plan accordingly. They are very welcoming and Do not hesitate to ask for their help if you need. The place is much much better than how it looks in the photo with a traditional style and ambience. I liked it!

  • The neighborhood is lovely clean and quiet. The accommodation is close to all shops, small restaurants where you can eat excellent paratas, and a half hour walk from the temple of Shiva and the ashram of Ramana Maharshi. The accommodation is very clean, air conditioned on the third and last floor of a small building opening onto a terrace with views of the sacred mountain and the great temple. The owners are very nice and the host is in constant contact by Whatsapp for any need. In addition, a washing machine was installed on the first day of our arrival. We were so well settled that we extended our stay by a week. We recommend without any reservations and invite people to come and spend some time in this little nest !!!

    The house is in a quiet place away from the noise of the road.
    Ramanashram is hardly 300m away, Arunachaleswarar temple is 2km. Dreaming tree restaurant is 50m.
  • Nice choice for your stay in Tiru. Great location, quiet, nice rooftop with view and Bala is an excellent host. I stayed here for 2 weeks.

    Maneesh2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • It was a wonderful welcome and stay at Balamurale's house. The location is very good, five minutes walk from the Ramana Ashram. The owner of the house showed great hospitality and gave a lot of useful advice, attention and care, making living in the house wonderful and comfortable. Before arriving at the house, he was wondering if everything was in order; complements were expected upon arrival at the house (bananas, water, a book)... The stay was so comfortable, everything was thought out in details (garbage bags, flashlight and much more). Balamurale is a very friendly and wonderful person who is ready to help at any time.

    Shynar2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Balamurale’s place is in a residential quiet neighborhood away from the hassle and bustle off the main road. For any visitor of the Ramana’s temple really near and ideal, just about 5 min away. Food stores and nice restaurant all nearby. There are a few ATM machines nearby. We do suggest you inform your bank that you are Travelling to india so you won’t encounter issues drawing out money. Balamurale’s place has a lovely vibe and from one of the windows you can see the special Arunachala mountain. It has simple cooking facilities but still what one could need. The good vegan and organic restaurants like the dreaming tree and German cafe are just a few hundred meters away. Balamurale is a fabulous host. He has a big heart just like Arunachala and is extremely helpful, he made our stay easy when needing a specific medication or needing help with the ATM machine or needing to add excess luggage. We can highly recommend him as a host and his lovely place. A big thank you to Bala.

    Harvey And Deborah (Nickname Kheli)2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at Balamurale’s place was simply amazing! He is a great, attentive, kind host! Traveling alone as a woman I was a bit fearful of staying at someone’s place, but I had a good feeling about the host and it proved right! Murali is very correct, understands very well Western mentality due to his experience working and traveling in Europe. He understands very well expectations and western standards. You can always rely on his advice and he reacts very promptly. He helped me with a lot of different tips, even some unusual ones:) like where I can go and weight myself:) His place is very cozy, clean, simple yet has its own nice style. It went beyond my expectations which were not very high due to different accommodation standards in India vs Europe. It’s very close to Ramana ashram, Yogi Ramsuratkumar ashram, main temple, girivalam road and nice cafés like Dreaming tree, German bakery etc. So really highly recommend both Murali as the host and his place, which has also a nice roof terrace. Neighbors were sweethearts as well :) Thank you, thank you, Murali! Will come again! :)

    Peace House's White room, along with the other houses in Bose Compound, was built in the 1930s by my great grandfather, Aurobindo Bose, a devotee of Ramana Maharishi. Bose Compound is a 2min walk away from Ramana Ashram where one can also begin the climb up Arunachala. We're located on the Girivalam road with Nilgiris, small shops & eateries close by. It's an old place that's very open to nature-- Those looking for a swanky modern set up will be disappointed!
    The white room is at the very top of the house Shanti or Peace, with it's own stairs and entrance. There is a small kitchen with the basics and a fridge, as well as a bedroom with an AC. The best thing about the place is the terrace which is large enough for at least 2 to do yoga in the mornings.
  • A beautiful place, quiet but close to everything important. Tara is a great host and takes care of everything so fast. The studio was very clean, spacious, with lovely energy.

  • This was our third time staying in the White Room, which is part of the verdant, spacious, historic Bose Compound. It’s very very close to Sri Ramanashramam, which is why the compound was built. Mr. Bose was a devotee of Sri Ramana. We love the White Room so much it truly feels like we’re coming home. This second floor space is so solid and spacious with 3 rooms - kitchen and living space, bedroom and bath. There’s also a very large, quiet balcony surrounded by shade trees, all very private and pleasant for taking meals, reading and meditating. One can really settle into the space....and make it home! The beds and furnishings are solid and comfortable... Tara, the proprietor, is helpful, present and very responsive. As is Devi, who can take care of little issues that arise. We’ll be back next year for an even longer stay!

  • Everything about my stay was perfect. I loved the White Room, it’s very spacious and cozy. Great location with everything you need close by, and although main gate is on a very busy street, as soon as you cross it you feel like entering an oasis. It always feels recharging to come back to this peaceful place. Overall 5 stars! I highly recommend it. Tara and the care takers are very kind and welcoming and always there to help you.

  • I stayed in the White Room for 2 weeks and I felt so at home I was sad to leave. The location couldn’t be more convenient for the town, restaurants and Ramanashramam. The first night I was awakened by the sound of monkeys on the roof which was a little alarming but I quickly got used to them. The Compound is filled with trees and wildlife. The small apartment was very comfortable, perfect for 2 people but in a pinch 3 people can stay. I highly recommend.

  • Cosy apartment with everything you need, feels like in a movie. Green garden infront your door, bakery and shops just outside the gate, 2min to Ramana ashram. Kind and friendly host. Perfect place for me. Glad, that I could extend my stay :)

    our house is perfect for devotees and at only a 2 mins walk from Ramanashramam . It has great accessibility to cafes, grocery stores , internet cafes and spas. It is located right beside Manna Cafe. I speak fluent Telugu and Hindi. I can speak English although not very fluent. Please bear with me in case of communication issues in any other languages which am sure can be fixed.
    Guests to maintain cleanliness at all times.
    2 mins walk from Ramanshramam and a wonderful place of Devotees to visit Aashram, Temple and perform Girivalam
  • We only stay one night but I appreciate the perfect location, just a few minutes walk from Sri Ramana ashram. Nice quiet and clean place.

    Peace House's Blue room, along with the other houses in Bose Compound, was built in the 1930s by my great grandfather, Aurobindo Bose, a devotee of Ramana Maharishi. Bose Compound is a 2min walk away from Ramana Ashram where one can also begin the climb up Arunachala. We're located on the Girivalam road with Nilgiris, small shops & eateries close by. It's an old place that's very open to nature-- Those looking for a swanky modern set up will be disappointed!
    The Blue room is rushed away at the back of the house Shanti or Peace, with it's own entrance. There is a small kitchen with the basics and a fridge, as well as thick mud walls which keep it very cool, even in summers. It's quiet and peaceful, and in that sense lives up to it's name.
  • Such a tranquil feel and nice escape from the chaos outside. It’s basic accommodation but Tiru is not a luxury place. Location is ideal, ashram, mountain, supermarket, cafes etc. all within walking distance. I felt very safe and at home, I really believe it’s the best place to stay in Tiruvannamalai and I would recommend Tara without hesitation.

  • First of all it's an imazing place with a big history and heart. Location is great, 2 minutes to ashram. And the place so green with big threes and country stile landscape design. I loved to stay at small terrace and drink tea. Also the house I love a lot. Every small peace has a soul, pictures, shits, small fridge, tea and coffee, tea pot, colors, lights. Also there small dressing room in front restroom, where I could keep my close. This place has feeling of home, thank u Tara for that :-)

  • Lovely place for a small family or a couple. Done up so well and very very clean. It made our weekend so nice! Just be prepared for a bit of drive to reach attractions or the main city markets. We enjoyed our stay with our infant !

  • As soon as we entered Monisha's place...we just felt at home. The place was so well kept and welcoming, that there were some moments when we forgot that this is not our home. The view of Arunachala from this place is just splendid. Enjoyed each bit of our stay here. Thanks Monisha and Thambi Raja for taking care of us.

    Large and spacious house in the midst of nature at it's best. Fully equipped with all neccessary amenities. The terrace provides a wonderful view of Arunachala.
    The house is 200 meters off the girivalam path and near the sparsa resort. It is 3.5 kms away from the Ramanashram and 5 kms away from the Temple.
  • Great helpful host of a property a bit removed from the noise and traffic. Sai helped me a great deal with transportation and logistics to make for a pleasant experience.
