The Hotel Eden Roc makes waterskiing available to its guests, and I could not resist when I looked out over the glasslike waters of Lake Maggiore. Eden Roc's GM Daniel Schali took me out in one of the hotel's swift and stylish motorboats, and even though I hadn't waterskied in years, I was soon out on the lake waving at Daniel, who'd put on his own skis to join me. The fact that the hotel has its very own boats and boat dock make the peak experience seamless—you can literally walk from your room right out to the dock, and you're on the water!
