With annual vacations at a halt, many of us are yearning for something other than trips to Sentosa’s beaches. At The Jovell, beach bums can vicariously enjoy a coastal experience at their swimming pool, which looks just like a white sandy beach at first glance.

Spanning almost half a football field, the pool is a great place to clock in some laps or just chill with your friends.
