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!

BEST in Maui! try snow capped coconut with mac or coconut ice cream. Holes in picnic tables to hold monstrous plastic cup called small. Great friendly staff! Wish we had tried it in the first of our week- it's true what it says on the back of their card. All shave ice is not created equal. Tried to find a shaved ice on the big Island as good in Kona and couldn't.

“Awesome shave ice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Tried both the one in Kahului and lahaina and both are really good. Try the Hawaiian flavors such as guava and lilikoi. Delicious. Good way to start or end your trip.

“Terrific shave Ice right near the airport!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

We love our shave ice and Ululani's in Kahului is a great way to start any Maui holiday. We ordered ours with sweet azuki beans and macadamia nut ice cream in the bottom and lychee and passion fruit syrups on top... oh and, of course, some sweet condensed milk on top. So ono!

It's located right on busy Dairy Road near the airport, so it's not scenic, but the shave ice is terrific. What set Ululani's apart from the rest, for us, were the generous scoops of ice cream and azuki beans at the bottom. Some other shave ice places we've tried haven't been as generous with the goodies you can't see at the bottom. The only negative for Ululani's might be the lack of seating in front. There is only a little bit of shade in which to sit (we were there in early afternoon) but if you go just around the corner of the building there are some public benches in the shade.

Prices seem about on par with other shave ice places. It's not cheap, especially when you add lots of options like we did, but it is very good. Overall I would recommend Ululani's in Kahului as an excellent first stop when you land on Maui. Actually we'll probably stop there on the way back home too!

“No better place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

The place to go. Period. Best shave ice anywhere and that staff are so friendly. We went twice in a week and loved the amazing amount of choices we had. Clean tasting and not over heavy syrups because they are homemade.
