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!

Real shave ice is not a snow cone - you don't get tiny, granulated pieces of ice, it's more like soft, freshly fallen snow. Ululani shave ice is soft, and they make their own syrup, so you get something a little bit different. Try tiger's blood with some macadamia nut ice cream. Yummy!

“Best Shaved Ice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

OK, we tried about eight shaved ice spots while on Vacation on Maui this September for 12 nights. This one, right on Front street was the best. Flavoring was top notch and the texture of the ice was more like a snowball then ice. Make sure you try it here, its a unique experience walking down front street while eating one of these and enjoying the views.

“Two Locations downtown Lahaina”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

We just returned from Maui and I thought I might mention that if you find one of the Ululani's Shave Ice shops in downtown Lahaina and the line is long, there is another location only a half block away. It is across the street and only a few businesses away. So ask and the locals will tell you about the 2nd location. The 2nd location also has tables with umbrellas for shade and lets you use plastic stands to hold the shaved ice. They come in handy......

“Oh yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

Fantastic shave ice. Friendly customer service.

This one is worth the hype. The ice is shaved so finely that it's almost creamy in and of itself. I had the Haleakela, a combination of coconut syrup and leche, sweetened condensed cream and cream mix. Adding the ice cream on the bottom added an extra decadent touch.

My family gravitated toward the fruit flavours. I tried a spoonful of my husband's and each fruit flavor tasted absolutely authentic.

The servings are huge. A "small" will be more than enough for most people.

“Fantastic!”

Don't be tempted by all the other shaved ice places along Front Street, these people have two shops and make the best ice on the island. Try coconut ice cream in it when you get to try one!
