About Aran Villa

In the Somali language, “aran” refers to the first rainfall that ends a long period of drought and brings bountiful harvests. Somalis commonly use the word to describe any situation or event that instills hope and optimism.

That concept is behind the ARAN VILLA, a full-service accommodations/security escort/facilitation center in Mogadishu, Somalia.

ARAN VILLA is a boutique hotel for international diplomats, journalists, development contractors and consultants, and private executives seeking a safe sanctuary in Mogadishu with all of the modern comforts of home. Conveniently located just minutes outside Mogadishu’s International Airport (MIA), Aran Villa offers seven well-appointed Suites for long-term guests, 14 standard rooms, office space for monthly rentals, and a large conference/meeting room. High speed Internet is available and the compound is wi-fi enabled, including outdoor areas.
