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!

“Ulalani x 2”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

Ulalani's Shaved Ice is by far the best. Macadamia Ice Cream, Fluffy snowy ice & flavored with mango, passionfruit and pineapple. My husband and I can't wait to go back to Lahaina so we can cure our cravings. Yum, Yum and Yum.

Not only are the shaved ice outstanding but the employees and owner provide great service with a smile and a bit of joking for fun. Enjoy!

“Simply the Best!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

If you like Shave Ice (or even if you don't think you do), you MUST try Ululani's. Its the best on any of the Islands. Coconut is amazing!

“Hands down, the best on Maui!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

We visited a couple of shave ice places to compare vendors and figure out all the hype about Ululani. We were impressed with Ululani's and agree that it is the best on the island. The ice is much lighter and finer (like Waiola's in Honolulu). The syrups are more refined and the flavors are identfiable. The servers punch small holes in the ice to allow the syrups to permeate the mound. As a result, we could taste the intense flavors to almost the very end. The prices are a little higher and they charge for all the extras. But if you want the best, this is it.

“Worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2012

This was the only shave ice we tried in Hawaii (and ever) so I do not have any comparison. But we did like it and I can agree with the other positive comments. The ice cream you can have at the bottom of the cup is delicious. Even the small size is big enough.
