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!

“A Suggestion re Ululani's”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

We've been to Ululani's several times during our visits to Lahaina. I have concluded THE best shave ice is the "Haleakala", with macadamia ice cream. It's not only very good, it's unique.

And, as always, the young people working the stand are engaging, well-trained and very pleasant (and they certainly deserve to have that tip box kept full). Ululani's become a "must" for our Lahaina walkabouts.

“Best shave ice on three islands!”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

My family just returned from a two-week trip to Hawaii. We visited a few different islands, and sampled the shave ice whenever possible. My family unanimously voted this the best shave ice that we ate the entire trip. When I told them I would be writing a review, they insisted that Ululani's get five stars. We recommend the root beer float - it was awesome!

“Must visit again!”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Great price, huge servings! The staff was very friendly and helpful. I had the coconut icecream with half mango, half pinapple. It was so refreshingg. I will never eat a snow cone from the mid-west again. There is no comparison! Do not miss this place. There are 4 differnt shops. Try to hist one or 2 of them!

“So Good!”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

The flavors were very true to their names. The coconut looked strange but was tasty. The size of the regular was actually very large. I tried the coconut, pineapple, lime, grape, and peach. They were all excellent (but I did not really like the peach, it reminded me of peach rings).

“Shave Ice: A-; Staff: A+”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

There's no doubt that Uluano's serves up some tasty shave ice. But I'm not sure it's any better than some of the other good spots I've visited on Maui and the other islands. I will say, though, the guys working the stand were friendly and a lot of fun to talk to.
