History
The Rixos Al Nasr in Tripoli, Libya (2010)
Rixos Hotels was founded by Fettah Tamince in Antalya, Turkey in 2000. Beginning in 1999, Tamince had a partnership with Tevfik Arif in the Antalya-based Labada Hotel, which ended in 2007.[1][2][3]
In 2009, Antalya mayor Menderes Türel was a chief consultant to Rixos.[4]
By 2010, the hotel chain had grown to include 14 properties and had gained recognition for hosting the Turkish President and Prime Minister during their vacations.[5]
During the 2009–10 Süper Lig, Rixos was the shirt sponsor for the Turkish football club Antalyaspor. In 2012, Rixos signed an advertising agreement with Spanish football club Atlético Madrid, with their logo appearing on footballers' shirts.[6]
In 2013, a joint venture of Sembol-Ekopark İnşaat-Fine Otelcilik, companies that Rixos owns shares in, secured rights to develop the Golden Horn yacht harbor in Istanbul.[7] Rixos joined the Global Hotel Alliance in 2013.[8]
In 2017, Rixos and AccorHotels signed a strategic partnership agreement within the framework of their growth strategies in the luxury hotel market.[9]
Rixos moved the headquarters to Dubai in 2014 but it's relocated to Antalya afterwards.[10]
