Hajo & Rose von Keller

Hajo & Rose von Keller

Managing Directors / Owners

The Mangosteen Ayurveda & Wellness Resort in Phuket wouldn’t be where it is without the dedicated staff, doctors and teachers; but also without the passionate owners, Hajo and Rose von Keller.

Read About the Owners
Hajo von Keller originates from Munich, Germany and decided to move to Thailand in 1996 to develop the sporting goods business for families, initially opening an office with a warehouse in Bangkok, and later a Sport Shop in Phuket Town.
At this stage, he did not plan to stay in Thailand very long, however the business was growing very fast and the team grew to around 25 staff, so the option to leave was diminishing monthly. Due to the Asian crisis in 1997, he decided to consolidate the business, moved to Phuket to leave the, at this time depressed city of Bangkok, and started to work on the “resort idea”. Completely new to the hospitality industry, he was studying possibilities carefully, contacting several experienced hoteliers, as he believed to have found an interesting market niche: A Boutique Resort with lots of space, comfortable but not snobbish, different from the classic “square building” hotels. It took 6 months to find the land in Rawai, 3 months to convince the bank and 18 months to build the Mangosteen Resort, which opened in March 2003.

The resort is more a hobby and a lifestyle, rather than a means of work for him, as he enjoys every minute of it. Hajo honestly didn’t want to work alone, so he has his wife Rose to help him, which is sharing the same passion as him.

Rose von Keller has been born in the northern town of Chiang Rai, but grew up mostly in Bangkok. Rose has been studying at the St. Theresa Secretarial School and Hotel business from Vittyanukorn university, graduated from UTCC (University of Thai Chamber of Commerce) and worked in famous hotels like The Mandarin Oriental in Koh Samui, as the Secretary to the General Manager.
She moved to Phuket in 1994 and worked as a Personal Assistant to the General Manager at Colony’s Hotel in Kamala to then, in 1997 join a leading publishing company, as a Office- and Sales Manager for an 8 years period.

Her experience in organization, her skills in human resources, and her ability to negotiate the best deals for the company have been essential for its success. Charming and always in good mood, she is a great motivator for the whole team and, of course, her children, who are studying Hospitality to make sure the resort remains family managed even after the current owners one day leave their positions.
In 2018, she received the official “Spa Manager” Certificate by the Ministry of Public Health, Bangkok. Her knowledge about Nutrition, Spa treatments, products, equipment and hygiene from the Spa Manager course has definitely come off very useful for the daily operation of the Mangosteen Ayurveda Spa. Together with Dr. Subhash she has created the new Ayurveda Food Menu and Super Drinks for the Mangosteen Restaurant.

Nitikarn Thachina (Niti)

Nitikarn Thachina (Niti)

Yoga & Meditation

Niti has taught at several famous retreats and wellness in Phuket with background in yoga and meditation.

Read More About Niti

Niti has joined us as a volunteer in teaching yoga and meditation at many social institutions, such as a range of orphanages in the area around our Yoga Resort. Niti has her spirit, vision and firm belief in humankind to live in harmony with our natural self. Her gentle soul and life experience has taught her to be a positive person through and through. Giving to others is her highest ambition in life.

In the modern society, individuals often do not take time off to listen and tune into their inner needs. Negative responses in addition to emotional restlessness can also manifest physically, such as aches, sores, and headaches.
Niti strives to solve the health concerns that stem from both physical and internal causes in the body as a result from the daily life’s stressfulness. .
Niti’s Yoga classes focus entirely on guiding practitioners to attend their inner voice, and still their bodies, as they are merely a vessel for your spiritual being, leading you to most happiness and peace with your unique self.
Niti also performs crystal-bowl singing meditation which accompany you with pleasant tone into deep trance, where you let go of all your worries and to be one with your peaceful essence, where you can reflect your outer self from within. Practitioners are encouraged to open for new experiences and free from ego. With genuine intention to practice and resolve to follow instruction, the result of the meditation will be worthwhile and exceed all expectations. Those who experience the benefits of meditation first-hand, would likely want to continue keeping on practicing as a fixed part of their life’s, as it helps one become more open and disciplined mentally.

Niti is well-known for her Singing Bowl Meditation classes, “Miracle of Sound”. Allow her to guide you to deep tranquility, where you will meet your inner serenity and contemplation that comes with it.

Ayurvedic medicine (“Ayurveda” for short) is one of the world’s oldest holistic
(“whole-body”) healing systems. It is a system that was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India and since improved and perfected to the state it is known for today. It’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit.

Its main goal is to promote good health, not to fight disease.


Janu Vasti Mangosteen Ayurveda Wellness Resort Phuket MenuWhy Ayurveda?

Hectic life in modern society mostly ignores traditional, natural, holistic healing methods. Ayurveda is an ancient holistic healing method from India, taking various factors of your body, your “Doshas” into account.

Many people are realizing that classic medicine often produces more side effects than effects, relating more and more to traditional, natural healing methods.

Ayurveda Cleansing Methodologies

FLU and VIRUS infections to the respiratory tract are a very common infestation and history since the existence of mankind.

The potency of the Virus is strongest during the peak of the winters and the change in climatic conditions, when the immune system is at the weakest.

It’s the very nature of a Virus to create a better self each year, with a better characteristic and a stronger new generation every year, and the only defense that can destroy them is the strong human body itself with the symptoms of fever, headache, nasal and oral discharges.
