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 no snow cone!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Ululani has brought shaving ice to perfection. No crushed ice. No blocks or chips of ice. Just pure perfection of shaved ice. The flavors are not just your standard fare either. They are puréed and crushed. Everything is just great. We went back three times during our trip to Maui.

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

We went here because of all the great Trip Advisor reviews. Did not disappoint. This ice is so smooth it could double as ice cream. We took the staff recommendation of Chocolate, Coconut and Cherry. Chocolate was a bit rich but the coconut and cherry were delish.

“Now I love shaved ice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

We go to Hawaii almost every year and each time I try shaved ice and end up not liking it. With Ululani's that changed. The ice is creamy instead of super icy, the flavors are good and not super artificial but what really changed me is the ice cream. The ice cream is so good I could eat just a bowl of that but with the shaved ice it is even better. If you don't like shaved ice I'd give this place a shot.. you'll probably be turned too

“The most cordial merchants on Front St.!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Best shaved ice on Maui. We went 4 times in 5 days. Try the "Sunset Beach" or the "Haleakala". Very pleasant clerks. Open at 11AM. Go early. Lines form when its hot.
