What does Rixos Mean?

According to the Greek historian Strabo, after the Trojan War, the city of Perge was discovered by colonists from Argos under the leadership of heroes Mopsos and Kalkhas. Research has confirmed that the Achaeans arrived in Pamphylia in around 2000 BC.

Moreover, in the excavations which took place in 1953, inscriptions dating from 120 - 121 AD were discovered in the forecourt of the Hellenistic entry gates within the city of Perge which bear witness to this colonization. The writings beneath the statues bear the names of the seven heroes: Mopsos, Kalkhas, Rixos, Labos, Machaon, Leonteus and Minyasas as legendary founders of the city. Our Group has been named after Rixos (1000 BC), one of the seven heroes who founded the city of Perge.


Rixos Hotels was established by Mr. Fettah Tamince in 2000 in Antalya, the capital of Turkey's tourism industry. The concept of "All Inclusive - All Exclusive" was developed at Rixos Hotels and represents our brand image.
