12 Best All-Inclusive Resorts in Antalya
Antalya is one of Turkey's Mediterranean vacation hot spots.
An international clientele flocks to this seafront city throughout the summer months to laze on a coastline fringed by sweeps of sand and backed by the jagged peaks of the Taurus Mountains.
One of the bonuses of a holiday here is that visitors have both the beach and the tourist attractions and buzzing cultural life of a big city on hand. Some of Turkey's most famous ancient archaeological sites, including the great theater of Aspendos and the vast city ruins of Perge and Termessos are also within day-tripping distance from the sand.
Get some ideas for your Antalya stay with our list of the best all-inclusive resorts in Antalya.
1. Rixos Premium Belek
