Pavilion Mall is located along Manila South Road near Barangay San Antonio in Biñan Laguna. It is roughly 45 minutes to 1 hour away from Manila by public transportation particularly by bus and jeepney. Surprisingly, it is quite easy to get there if you will be coming from Manila.

The nearest commercial establishment is the Umbria Commercial Center. The Jubilation Enclaves subdivision is just a stone throw away from the Pavilion Mall.
