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!

I was wondering why this was going to be better than similar things I've tried. All I can say is just try it, and you will be on here giving it 5 stars. Only complaint I got is we went by on our last night in Maui around 10pm on a Friday night, and it was already closed. Bummer!!!! Guess we have to go back, and finish our vacation off right the next time!!!

“The BEST shave ice on the island!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Excellent flavors--you can actually taste real flavor here, not that artificial stuff--and the ice is shaved so finely. Truly a delight, especially after a hot day. Warning: their "small" is pretty big, so plan to share! :)

“Best in Lahaina”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

As newbies to the island, two adults and two kids took to the streets of Lahaina in late May-early June, 2013. We stopped by each of the shaved ice stands and couldn't be more impressed with the selection and flavors of the offerings at Ululani's. Only one of the flavor selections didn't appeal to us (local motion with li hing (yuk)). Each of the other flavor combinations was excellent and we can honestly recommend this as the BEST HAWAIIAN SHAVED ICE during our visit...The ice-craftsmen/women behind the counter engaged in lively conversation as they made the treats; prices are reasonable and make sure you as for a card to stamp if you will return during your stay on the island.

“Amazing, refreshing treat”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

I was a bit skeptical of the shave ice concept upon arrival in Maui. Fortunately the first place we tried it was Ululani's. The ice is so soft that it is almost creamy and the syrups are fresh and delicious. Service was always great and the flavors were such a treat. Coconut lovers was our favorite - coconut, pina colada and tiger's blood. Adding a scoop of coconut ice cream made it even better. We ended up going here three times and I will definitely be back during my next trip to Maui!

Reviewed June 6, 2013

Fun staff, amazing assortment of flavors (lilikoi was my favorite), reasonable prices. This place is just full of win. We hit this place almost nightly when we had dinner in Lahaina.
