“Best Shave Ice on Maui”

Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice
Ranked #1 of 21 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!

My wife and I shared a shave ice at Ululani's in Lahina and loved it. While venturing through Maui and checking out their wonderful swap meets, we passed the Ululani's in Kihea. I had to turn around and go back. AMAZING... the largest pile of shave ice I've seen. And that was the SMALL. plus the macadamia nut ice cream and sweetened condensed milk on top and toasted coconut. MMMMMMM This is a must stop.

We read the reviews and couldn’t understand how shave ice could be rated so high. Our past experience was it was just another word for a snowball. This place proved us wrong. This was nothing like a snowball. It was smooth and so delicious. We both had “micros” – more than enough. My wife had mac nut ice cream on the bottom with salted caramel (a daily special) and chocolate on hers. It was good! I had vanilla ice cream on the bottom with tropical flavors on top and the snow cap. Again, good. We went back another day and planned on sharing a small of the same flavors she had previously gotten but sadly no salted caramel was available that day. So we did the mac nut ice cream with chocolate and coffee - again so good.
Be aware – the servings are LARGE! The service was good and the staff very friendly. Get the punch card because you will return.

This place is great. They have tables right out front for you to sit and eat your shaved ice. The tables have holes in them the size of your shave ice for you to put in place. The flavors are really good. We had the Lahaina, which is Pineapple, Banana and Coconut. The day we were there, the staff of two young woman and a young man were helping all the customers. The young man working there is a great guy from the island but shows interest in every customer and where they are from. Very friendly and attentive. He is great and I cannot recommend him enough! We will definitely be going back for more shaved ice!

Do NOT miss going to Ululani's however once you go here, you won't want to have any other shave ice. They have inspired me to make my own syrups at home.
