“heaven in a cup”

Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice
Ranked #1 of 22 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 reviews are true! Best shave ice in Maui. We tried two other shave ice vendors when Ululani's was closed and was happy with their flavor/quality. After trying Ululani's, we realized that the other vendors are a distant second place!

The service was first glass every time we we went. The product top shelf. The staff made you feel welcome every time, and we went many times it became our go to spot for desert. It's a must go

They have several locations in Maui. If you come across one, just go get one, pronto!

We like the Kihei location. Shaded seating area, view of the water, and some friendly young ladies working there.

Shave ice comes in three sizes: Micro, Small, and Large.

Small is physically quite large, about the size of softball. But don't worry, it's just water and sweet fruity syrup, so it's not too filling. A small is enough for two to share, but you guys might race each other to finish it. It's so good that it triggers "selfishness hormones."

You get to choose up to three flavors. Just stick to the most popular flavors as notated on the menu, and stick to the tropical flavors. You are in the tropics, after all. Don't go all mainland and order strawberry, orange, and cherry, lol.

Get the scoop of the local Maui vanilla ice cream with your shave ice. No need to feel guilty, you're on vacation. Don't worry, you'll burn it off when you go for a swim at the beach. And even if you don't, you are on vacation, so indulge a bit, wontcha?

And it's "shave ice," not "shaved ice." You in Hawaii brah.

we tried both the Lahaina and Kihei locations of Ululani's, both were excellent. The flavours and textures were unmatched. Also the staff are sooo friendly and great with customer service.

This place has great shave ice, with unlimited choices. If you are staying for more then a few weeks or have a family that like shave ice ask for their reward card. It did not take long to fill ours up.
