Maui’s Best: Ululani’s Shave Ice

Heaven on Earth

Okay, fine. Something as simple as shave ice does not warrant godly claims, but Maui’s finest shave ice, Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice does come close to commanding those kind of references.There’s nothing better to satiate the salt in your mouth after a long and hot day at the beach than the smooth, sweet, freezing sensation of a shave ice. Only in Hawaii is there an option for shave ice on Yelp, but interestingly enough, Ululani’s takes the top spot with all four of their locations operating at 5 stars.

Ululani’s originally opened in the Christmas of 2008 at their first location in Lahaina on Front Street. Since then, they have systematically expanded to the earlier mentioned four locations: two Front Street locations, Dairy Road in Kahului, and South Kihei Road.


Owners David and Ululani Yamashiro have instilled in their workers to make every experience at Ululani’s the best, they aim to serve shave ice with a taste of Aloha spirit in every bite. They believe in making every experience at Ululani’s a special one, creating lasting and delicious memories for each and every one of their customer.

They have crafted their special recipes for their assortment of syrups, using only 100% pure cane sugar, premium purees, natural fruit juices and extracts, hand picked concentrates, and local ingredients. They take careful attention of the finest details giving Ululani’s the edge over their competitors. The little things filtered water, Maui’s Roselani’s Ice Cream, homemade mochi, and quality azuki add-ons. It’s the tiny details and care put into the shave ice that allows them to provide the best tasting shave ice possible!


They stress they aloha spirit at Ululani’s so much so that their foundational values lie in a company acronym:

● A – Akahai – meaning kindness to be expressed with tenderness
● L – Lokahi – meaning unity, to be expressed with harmony
● O – `Olu`olu – meaning agreeable, to be expressed with pleasantness
● H – Ha`aha`a – meaning humility, to be expressed with modesty

After a bite of Ululani’s, the realization of their superiority quality will make you realize what shave ice is suppose to be like.
