Case Study:
The Datai Langkawi

The 5 star beach hotel, The Datai Langkawi adopted AWS Cloud Security Assessment and Migration Service to keep their data secure and accessible around the world with the right security practices in place. With the support of AWS and G-AsiaPacific, The Datai Langkawi no longer faces challenges of unsecured, cost and time burning.


The Datai Langkawi is a luxurious destination resort nestled in the heart of a 10-million- year-old rainforest, set against a backdrop of primordial mountains. Located on the north western tip of the lush tropical island of Langkawi off the coast of West Malaysia, The Datai is truly an oasis of relaxation and tranquillity surrounded by centuries-old virgin rainforest with a private footpath leading to an idyllic white sand beach, swimming pool and spa, and nearby The Els Club Teluk Datai. Designed by the visionary architect Kerry Hill and interior designer Didier Lefort, it is the most awarded resort hotel in Southeast Asia.

The Challenge

No AWS experts on their end

Security on AWS being compromised which caused a spike in the usage

Solutions from G-AsiaPacific

G-AsiaPacific to provide post deployment service and conduct an AWS Cloud Security Assessment to find the root cause of the issue. The Datai Langkawi are no longer experiencing high usage due to compromised security. Our AWS resources are secured as well.

Why Amazon Web Service

AWS is one of the largest cloud services, and is well known for providing enhanced security to protect organizations. AWS data centers and servers have multiple layers of operational security which makes security monitoring faster and much more reliable.

The Outcome

We used AWS cloud security assessment to help us provide insights on how our account is configured and managed with the use of industry best practices and recommendations. The assessment deep dived into technical security to identify misconfiguration, vulnerabilities, and improvements. Also, the migration service provide our company unbeatable operational speed and agility, cost saving and higher operational resilience.
