It was a nice treat to cool off in maui. The employees were super nice and let us taste different flavors. Ours was coconut and passion fruit. Too sweet but still yummy. Bought a large. Couldn't finish it. I'm not a sweet tooth kind of person but if you are, you'll love this little shack!

There's a reason this place gets called out for their shave ice. Great amount of syrup, fluffiness, snow cap, and Mac nut ice cream. Expensive like everything on Maui, so we shared. We ate at the location by the airport---not especially scenic.

Ive traveled the state pretty well and have ordered shave ice at least once on every single island. Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice is the best! Forget Local Boys, Matsumoto, or Waiola! Ululani's is the best shave and is further complimented with the best flavors. The flavorings used are not the widely used syrups found everywhere else, but I believe Aunty... More

Stopped here to check off another bucket list item - having some shave ice. Watching the nice lady prepare the small serving was almost like watching an artist at work. There's a science to these things. It took a while but was worth the wait. I took a seat at one of the two benches, situated under a burlap canopy... More

I have tried shave ice before in the North Shore area in Oahu. And I have noticed that Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice had less varieties than the one from North Shore. Nevertheless, it was good in a hot day.

I was not a fan of shave ice and it's sugary syrups until I tried Ululani's. They use real fruit juice and that makes a huge difference. There are a huge variety of flavors. I like it best with haupia (coconut) ice cream underneath. Plus, the people who work there are always very friendly and patient.

This shaved ice was far more delicious than I imagined it could be! Try the ice cream on the bottom with mango and orange guava. Throw on he snow cap for an extra-creamy, cool and sweet Hawaiian treat!

Very refreshing shaved ice, cools you off after basking under the sun. Yummy! Has good selection of flavors. Good place to get your sugar fix, next to it is a pastry shop.

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!
