“The World's Best Shaved Ice!”

Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice
Ranked #1 of 20 Dessert in Kihei
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $4 - $9
Cuisines: Hawaiian
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!

“The World's Best Shaved Ice!”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

I have been visiting the Hawaiian Islands for the past 39 years and have always enjoyed shaved ice. On our recent trip to Kihei we discovered Ululani's Shaved Ice in Kihei, just a mile down the beach from where we were staying. The ice is shaved perfectly, shaped in the dish size of your choice and poked with holes, but the flavors that they use are amazing. I have never had such wonderful flavors that also completely saturate the ice. The hardest thing is to pick your three flavors. The coconut flavor seemed to completely change the texture of the ice. We also elected to have a scoop of macadamia nut ice cream at the bottom both times that we visited and that sent it over the top. The girls that waited on us really seem to pride themselves in making a perfect shaved ice, they were also extremely friendly. My daughter and son-in-law liked it so much that they went back three times. They also have great holders for your dish which is great for kids and/or messy adults. Tables and chairs are available outside to enjoy your treat. Away from the crowds, this is the place to have a little bit of heaven in Paradise.
Con: When you get back home to the mainland you really want another.
