“SM's Premier Mall in the South”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

SM's extensive experience in the business of Malls is evident in their construction and management of SM Lanang.
Located in a place which was not conventionally a place for commercial shopping, they have, once again, successfully created a "supply" not dependent on the "need".
It boasts of a good number of familiar shops and services that you can find in the capital of the Philippines, which is a real comfort for people from the Metro visiting Davao.
Parking is not a problem.
I also noticed a very efficient cab-queuing process that was quick and safe.
The main Atrium was big and the high ceilings of the mall made this area look even more spacious.
The security guards were quite familiar with the location of the shops.
Aircon was cold enough to cool the huge mall.

“One-Stop Destination for Shopping, Dining, Entertainment and So Much More”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

One of the best malls I've ever been to! I was really awed by the place. It so spacious. The mall's exterior design is inspired by origami, the traditional Japanese art of paper folding. The abstract and asymmetric lines of the origami are introduced in the mall's the north, south and west facades.

SM Lanang Premier is targeted towards the higher segment of the market, no wonder it belongs to the crème de la crème of SM malls.

I love its Flat Café where Starbucks is designed on top of a free-standing slab that offers a 360-degree view of the monumental atrium.

Tenants/Mall staff are very friendly and helpful.

“Fashion Forum, Flat Cafe, Skygarden and So Much More at SM Lanang Premier”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

I love everything about SM Lanang Premier. From the Fashion Forum to the impressive 360 degree view atop the Starbucks Flat Cafe to the restaurants Selera (make sure to try the bacon wrapped bagaybay), Hog's Breath Cafe and Blugre at the Skygarden!
