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 most amazing shaved ice - the best we've ever eaten. We discovered Ululani's in April 2009 on our first day of vacation and ended up going back every day (sorry it took so long for the review, David). We went back to Maui in December and again had to have our daily dose of ice. All the flavor are fabulous but of course, I think mine is the best (strawberry and lechee with cream on top - it's to die for). The service is top quality - David, Ulu and staff make you feel like family. Thanks so much for this perfect treat. We'll be back in April - See ya'll soon. Kasey and Regina
P.S. Can't wait to try out the Kahului location.

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

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.

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
