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!

Loved the shave ice here! Make sure you get a Snow Cap and toasted coconut on top! Delicious! A sweet treat that is sure to cool you off after a day at the beach!

“Best on Maui!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Great service, prices, flavors and the best on Maui! Packed with locals so you know it's good! They make their own syrups so the taste is fresh and pure. Very good consistency for shaved ice.

I had never had a shaved ice with ice cream in the bottom. We loved this so much we went here everyday.

“Yummy Shave Ice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

My husband and I flew into Maui today, and just about the first thing we did was head to Ululani's Shave Ice. We ended up getting there about 5 minutes until they closed. We had never been there before and weren't aware of the operating hours. As soon as we walked in the door, it was obvious that they were already cleaning up. I felt bad initially, because I am not one to show up at any restaurant establishment even within 30 minutes of closing. But despite us inconveniencing the girls working there, they were super friendly and were more than willing to serve us. The shave ice was SO good. I have been to Matsumato's on the northern shore of Oahu, and it is similar to that place. Both delicious. I had the coconut ice cream at the bottom, and mango and passion fruit flavors added. Yummy! We will be going back many times during our vacation here!

“Tried several shave ice places in Hawaii, this one is the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

We had shave ice twice in Kauai, and once in Maui. Ululani's turned out to be the best. Their tropical flavors used real fruit in the syrup, not just the fake syrupy stuff that the other places used. We had coconut and pineapple, with a scoop of coconut on the bottom. It was really good. Their ice was also the finest texture of all that we tried. The other places put ice cream in the middle, which we didn't enjoy as much. Uluani's was the smallest and most expensive, but turned out to be our favorite.
