Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, the crown prince of Dubai, is currently visiting British Columbia and making good use of his $55 million penthouse at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel.

The 31-year-old is frequently ranked as one of the sexiest Arab men alive. He is the son and heir-apparent of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and constitutional monarch of Dubai.

The family is among the world’s richest royals with a wealth of $4.5 billion, down from nearly $13 billion in 2010 when the recession greatly impacted the value of global investment company Dubai Holding.

The crown prince is known to be a thrill seeker and believes his many adventures and travels have prepared him for leadership. This includes skydiving, publishing poetry under the name Fazza, and becoming a competitive horseback rider – winning awards that include a gold medal in equestrian at the 2006 Asian Games. He is a graduate of Sandhurst and the London School of Economics.

Sheikh Hamdan arrived in Vancouver on a Boeing 747-400 owned by the Dubai Royal Air Wing, the airline of the government of Dubai.

He previously visited Vancouver in March 2013 and during that stay made Canada’s most expensive real estate deal. His family’s property at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel covers 15,000 square feet over the building’s top three floors, encompassing the penthouse plus three sub-penthouse units to create one massive luxurious penthouse unit with unparalleled views of the inlet and mountains.
