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!

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed February 8, 2010

Better than Matsumoto Shave Ice on Oahu! We went 3 times! Try some of the tropical flavors - passion fruit, lychee, etc...they make 80% of their flavors

A little hard to find - next to Cheeseburgers in Paradise

“Walked past it twice, but well worth seeking out”
Reviewed February 1, 2010

This walk-up window place is set back from the sidewalk in a courtyard, so we had to search it out a little bit. The small size was so large we ended just splitting two smalls between two adults and two kids. The service was very friendly and helpful, and even though there was a line behind us, the staffer did not rush us.

The thing that separated it from other shave ice is that the ice is cut so fine that it does refreeze and create chunks of ice, so you get the same consistency in texture and flavor from start to finish.

Our only regret was not finding it sooner.

“Wondeful Hawaiian Shaved Ice”
Reviewed January 28, 2010

My wife and I went by Ululani's twice when we stayed in Kaanapali. We made it a point to drive over to Lahaina just to visit Ululani's.

The employees are always super friendly.

The portions are very large... a small size could actually be shared and only costs $4.00

“Best Shaved Ice we have ever had!”
Reviewed January 19, 2010

This is the best place to buy shaved ice on the island! We went back several times and highly recommend it. Our favorite was coconut, banana and strawberry with a snow cap. Yum, yum... tastes just like a Lava Flow (which was our favorite drink)! The cherry, lilikoi and orange flavors were also very delicious. We found out the owner was from Vancouver, Wa (where we are from) and he treated us extra special. He remembered us every time we came back. Great service and great prices!
