There were so many amazing reviews of the shave ice at Ululani's we had to try it during our Maui stay. It was everything other reviewers have said, and more. From the macadamia ice cream base to the snowcap on top, and the fresh syrups in between, this is what I think shave ice is supposed to be. The staff... More

They have done an excellent job of marketing. There is almost always a long line, but in reality their shave ice was about the same as any other place. I do like the fact that if you hit a "white spot" in the ice (indicating no flavor) you can go to the front of the line and get more juice... More

My wife and I stopped and it was hard to figure out which flavors to add. We finally chose tigers blood, red raspberry and pineapple. The flavors tasted like the real fruit and the texture of the shaved ice was very creamy! Check this place out its awesome!

We tried one other place for Hawaiian Shave Ice, but really there's no need. Delicious treats and super friendly servers. Definitely a place to visit multiple times!

Great shave ice.... so finely shaved that it's super smooth. You can even go back for extra flavoring if you find it not enough.

When you walk up to the window you are immediately greeted with a warm greeting and a big smile. Next, you feel so confused over the flavors; what's li hing mui? What's Calamansi? Pickled Mango??? Yaaassss!!! Step out of the box and taste the love of the Island right there on your shave ice! No matter what flavor you get,... More

We stopped by the stand at the Hyatt hotel. The shave ice was fabulous and quite different from expected. It really is unique. The staff members were super! Very friendly!

This is the best shave ice you'll ever have. We live on Maui & still come here almost weekly. And the staff is top notch!

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!
