Description: All Shave Ice is Not Created Equal... We specialize in and are passionate about serving the BEST shave ice! Now open for 5 years, we have rapidly become recognized as the top shave ice shop in Maui and one of the top 3 shave ice shops in ALL of Hawaii! We are known for the softest ice (comparable to Waiola's on Oahu), the best tasting flavors (we make 100% of our flavors using premium fruit purees, fresh fruits (when available), extracts, and concentrates from Hawaii and all across the United States), and warm friendly service with true ALOHA spirit! We specialize in our tropical fruit flavors. Our mango, coconut, pineapple, lilikoi (passion fruit), and guava taste like biting into the fresh fruit itself. From the filtered water to the premium gourmet Roselani's Ice Cream to the homemade mochi and azuki add-ons, we have thought through every detail of the shave ice to provide the BEST tasting shave ice possible! Get rid of any preconceived notions of what a shave ice or snow cone is like.....this takes shave ice beyond the highest level imaginable!

“Don't miss this place -- Awesome, awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2009

Do not miss this place. We were in Maui for 5 days and stopped here 3 times. This is not your typical Icee or Slurpee. This is a totally different experience. The serving size is huge. My wife and I split a small and we were both full when we finished. Believe me, they do not skimp on the size. And at $4, it is a bargain in Hawaii. The people that work here are great. My wife and I couldn't decide what to get. They gave us samples and recommendations until we could decide. They try to get to know you and really appreciate your business. Really, truly first class customer service. If you get shaved iced anywhere in Lahaina, it needs to be here. It is slightly hidden but if you find Cheeseburger in Paradise, head north and it is literally right there on your left. Stop here, it will be worth it!!

“The Best Shave Ice Hands Down”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2009

I went to every shave ice place I passed. At least 20 all over the island and Ululani's on front street is the best. They have the finest shave most importantly. The syrups are thick and delicious and they have the most options I have seen. They have the tastiest cream for on top and everyone that works there is super friendly. You may have to wait in a line but it is well worth it. I like Tiger's Blood (cherry & coconut) with Blue Hawaii (blue vanilla & coconut) topped off with a snow cap of sweet cream. Onolicious!!!

“Best Shave Ice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2009

We just spent two weeks on Maui, and my kids tried all the shaved ice places in Lahaina, and Ulalani's was by far the best. The quality of the flavors was by far the best. We went back four times during our stay. Also the ice was shaved very fine unlike some of the other places that were larger ice shavings.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2009

The best shaved ice we've ever had - don't be misled by prior "sno-cone" experiences - this is a taste experience that should not be missed while in Maui. Excellent value for the quality and serving size. Fantastic!
