Abu Dhabi goes Hollywood

The very American blog Luxist publishes this photo, which may have escaped the editors of Gulf News and The National. The blog post is lacking in any of the snide undertones which characterize so many mentions of developments in the Sandlands. The only remaining question is whether Sulaiman Al Fahim's keffiyeh hides a quiff rivalling that of The Donald!

Dr. Sulaiman Al Fahim, the CEO of Hydra Properties got the Hollywood treatment last week, hanging out with stars including Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, Katherine Heigl and Charlie Sheen at the
Chrysalis Butterfly Ball at a posh estate in Bel-Air. Who is this guy? Dr. Fahim is a bit of a one man publicity machine for the economy and investment opportunities in Abu Dhabi, he's a young entrepreneur with his hand is a whole host of real estate developments. And like Trump, he's even hosting his own reality show. The Hydra Executives show will pit two teams, eight British and eight American contestants against each other in a variety of business related challenges in Abu Dhabi competing for the standard reality-television carrot of $1 million. Hydra Properties has a variety of projects underway in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Mexico and elsewhere around the world.
