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!

Worth the long lines

We had heard so much about this place that we had to try it. The long lines are worth the wait. They offer 3 sizes and the big one is huge! I recommend the medium size for adults and small for kids. Their shaving technique really sets this apart from a snow-cone. It comes off as a creamy... read more

I thought shave ice... what's the big deal? Everybody's had a "snow cone". And then I tried Ululani's and understood. The shave ice is as fine as snow with wonderful homemade syrups that actually taste like fruit. The line can be long sometimes, but it's worth the wait! As a bonus, get a scoop of mac nut ice cream in... More

Our family has been enjoying Ululani's amazing shave ice since they first opened in Maui in 2008. We were lucky enough to discover them after reading the glowing Tripadvisor reviews back then and thinking how does a shave ice place get #1 restaurant? We have to try it! Well, all it took was that first try! Since then we have... More

It is pure and true shaved Ice, with real sugar cane flavors and one of a kind flavors. It you are hungry or brave or LOVE Ice cream, add the Ice Cream to the bottom of it bowl and paradise.

I recommend the Haleakala with coconut ice cream on the bottom but others had great shave ice as well. Passion fruit was good You can't go wrong it's all excellent. Lines weren't bad at all and price are very good. Don't miss this place.

First time eating shave ice -- must try. Vast array of flavors, toppings and ice cream add-ons. Definitely recommend any one of their locations, but the beach-side stand at the Hyatt Kaanapali is a particularly nice place.

Visited with my family during our recent vacation in Maui. It is the best shaved ice we have ever had as it is not like any other we have ever had. It is very smooth like a powder that just melts in your mouth. Definitely a must when you visit Maui.
