Saudi Arabian government leaders relish the cool ocean breezes of Taif, a city nestled upon the Al-Sarawat Mountains, as the government moves here every year to escape the scorching heat of the country’s capital. Renowned for sweet honey and grapes, Taif boasts peaceful rose gardens and a welcome respite from blazing desert summers. Le Meridien Al Hada is perched on the highest peak of the mountain range, 2,500 meters above sea level. A steep and rocky green slope leads to the 111-room mountain resort.
