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 the place! The shave ice is smooth and almost creamy and the flavors are authentic. I love the passion fruit and the cocoanut.

Went to this place three times in four days. We love shave ice and tried a couple of others on Maui and Oahu but Ululani's tops them all easily. There flavours are perfect and taste delicious, they are not to strong and overpowering or too tangy, they are just right. The ice cream in the bottom, the poking of holes in the ice to get the flavour in, the flavour combinations, the stands for the shave ice, the friendly staff is what makes this place the best restaurant in Maui. This was our favourite food experience in Maui, do not miss out on going here, you will not regret it.

After hearing from many folks that this is the best Shave Ice we decided to give it a try, WOW! We had our first EVER Shave Ice here about a week ago, AMAZING! Who knew?!
We had a large, it was around 8.00 and filled us both up, it was mango, passion fruit and pineapple with coconut ice cream on the bottom and topped with toasted coconut. Our eyes were rolling back into our head on the first bite! Our favorite was the mango, it seemed to have the fullest flavor but was complimented very well by the other two. The employees were amazing, friendly and genuinely excited to help us with our first ever selections.
We tried a shave ice several days later somewhere else, if that was our first we'd have NEVER had another, I am with all the folks say don't try another, at least make Ululani's your first so you won't be disappointed!

....We stopped for one more on our way to the airport! ;)

This shaved is is so light that it literally melts in your mouth without any ice crystal crunching! How do they do it? Believe all the reviews. The macadamia nut ice cream is to die for and their syrup distribution is perfect -- no pooling up at the bottom and no big chunks of ice without syrup. Portions are huge -- small is large and they now have a micro size!

The servers at these window-service only stands are so friendly, every time asking where we were from or what we were up to -- I suspect they are really well trained to chat while they prepare the ices (it takes awhile). If not, we all want to find their recruiting secret! It makes for an awesome experience -- you really get the feeling that they are happy you are there.

We discovered Ululani's based on TA. Went there three times in a week. BIG discovery on our way back from biking on Haleakala -- they have a location on Dairy Road that is on the way out from the airport! This was our last stop before going to the airport and will be our first stop on our next trip to Maui. Wish they had an inside-airport location as our plane was delayed for six hours. A MUST visit. This is a family owned company and they rock!
