I wanted to thank you both very much for making our event so successful. Feedback from everyone was extremely positive without exception. Your Team were fast and friendly on the bar, the food was absolutely delicious, (I ate far too much!) please pass this on to your Chef and the venue absolutely gorgeous- those views are stunning. But saying all of that, what was even better and was the proverbial glue that held everything together, was both of you. Nothing was a problem from extending our space to providing a mini stage, and that was hugely appreciated. You were both brilliant although I feel a bit guilty for poor Claudia having to stay on so long as our guests were having such a great time they didn’t want to leave!
We would again want to say a big thank you, for an amazing time at Akarana. Your gracious hospitality and professional Kaupapa far extended all our expectations. Everyone absolutely loved the day. Of course, especially too, we would like to acknowledge Claudia aka Chole, thank you for being a champion with us all and going with the flow.. you were great on stage a lovely presence.. and the most wonderful hostess. Thank you both for all your support, calmness and always smiling.
Thank you for such a wonderful day on Saturday. Our team was blown away with Claudia’s attention to detail, care, and kindness. She made the day run perfectly and the venue of course is stunning.
