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!

“We went back for more!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2010

We visited Lahaina over a year ago (March 2009) and are still talking about the awesome Hawaiian Shave Ice we got at Ululani's. The service was the friendly and the selection was huge! We went back a few days later for some more and our family even went when they were in Lahaina last month. Ululani's is a must for everyone!

“Best Shaved Ice - Super Friendly Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2010

Just got back from Maui - we stumbled upon Ululani's Shaved Ice on Front Street in Lahaina. What can I say? Wow! We went there four days in a row trying different flavors. A must try

“SO GOOD”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2010

The name shaved ice is misleading. It's more like fluffy, snowy, heavenly goodness. I'm not one for frozen treats or anything sweet, but i loooooooved it. I recommend the haleakala flavor. It looks big so i shared with my husband. BIG mistake. Get your own. You won't regret it.

“Best Shave Ice in Hawaii”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2010

If you go to Maui you MUST stop at Ululani's or you've missed the best edible treat on the islands. They offer two sizes of shave ice but you must always order the large. The first shave ice we ever had was on Oahu and it had vanilla ice cream in the bottom. At Ululani's you can choose from three different ice cream flavors. Also they have over 35 flavors (including sugar free) and you can combine any flavors you want. The nicest thing is that the owner is usually there and he is genuinely appreciative of your business. That's something you don't hear much anymore..."thank you." Also his employees are fun and they make the whole experience even more enjoyable. The only negatives are that it is a bit difficult to find and parking in Lahaina is always a challenge BUT Ululani's is well worth the effort..

“It's everything that people say...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2010

Warm service and a scrumptious treat! This was my first experience with shave ice and I was WOWED. It's simply delicious. Intense flavor. Fluffy, creamy ice. I know creamy isn't a word for ice, but somehow it fits! I had a simple shave ice (no ice cream) with fruit and coconut natural flavors. With a dash of sweet cream. I'm not a big sugar person and you get big portions even with the smallest size... but I couldn't help myself... I ate the whole thing. And the next morning I woke up craving another!
