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!

This is a regular stop each time were on the island. The flavors and the textures and tastes are amazing. Try the passionfruit. Definitely good when it's hot outside as a cooler and a way to get cooled off!!

Good stuff for kids of all ages.

Stopped here after reading all the great reviews. The ice certainly has a softer, different consistency than the other stands and the flavors taste a bit better, too. Nothing to go insane over, but we will definitely be back again next time we are in the area. The girls that were working were also really nice and friendly!

Just returned from Maui. By far, one of our favorite places to go for a mid-day treat was Ululani's Shave Ice in Kihei! Oh, my word...talk about delicious! So many delectable flavors to choose from...our family favorite was a combination of pina' colada and tiger's blood. Beyond AMAZING! We got 2 larges every time we visited and we gobbled them down. The girls behind the counter were so friendly and welcoming...asking us what fun things we'd done that day. We almost felt like we'd made new friends. You DO NOT want to miss out on these wonderful treats. Give them a try...you will be hooked!

I was wondering how could this be better than when you leave your ice cream in the freezer too long and it crystalizes but wow is this ever different! The ice, like everyone says, is shaved to the texture of a fresh snowfall. And when you get to the ice cream at the bottom, it is an incredible mix of textures. I got the coconut pudding ice cream so I'm not sure if that has a special texture of its own but it seems more...well...pudding-y. I got the haleakala flavor combo which is leche, coconut, and condensed milk snow cap. Excellent combo. The second time I got it dirty which means coffee on top and that was even more excellent. The flavours go all the way through the ice because they poke holes in it. I didn't even try any other places because I heard no one else can get the same fluffy snowy texture to their ice...you think it would be easy if you just buy the same shaving machine...

My son and I visited this location several times during our time on Maui. The first time we had no idea to ask for ice cream on the bottom although they offered. Oh what a nice treat! (I only got Ice cream once to save on calories because it's great without!!)
