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!

“Try the mango flavour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Really enjoyed the shave ice here. Tried shave ice at Lampert's (sp?) ice cream shop and is was not as good as Ululani's. The mango flavour was my favourite. We also tried bubblegum and cotton candy. When you order a small you can choose up to three different flavours. The Lahaina location is next to a really good burger joint, grab a burger and a shave ice and enjoy the lovely atmosphere surrounding you!

“Best Shave Ice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

We had our first shave ice here. I kind of expected it to be like a snow cone and was pleasantly surprised at how delicious it was. It was so creamy and smooth, like someone else says, "melts in your mouth like snow." There are so many flavors to choose from. We made a special trip back to Lahaina just to go back for this amazing treat. We tried some other shave ice places and this was our very favorite. If you stop here you won't be disappointed.

“Melts in your mouth like snow.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

It was one of our places to go on the list of things to do. Wasn't disappointed at all. It was every thing the reviews said and more. Going up over 30 years ago it was a treat do have snow cream. For any one who has had the treat of eating snow cream this will bring back memories.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

Ululani's is the best shave ice place on the island!! There are several Ululani Shave Ice locations on Maui, and all super good.

“Best part of our trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

We always associate shave ice with Jo-Jo's on Kauai, but now we have a new favorite! We kind of stumbled on it, because we ate lunch at the Down to Earth market in Kahalui, but then we went 4 more times in Lahaina. Excellent texture and flavors. Really remarkable. And to a person, the friendliest, happiest staff - no bad attitudes. Will be back the next time we're in Maui!
