Scarlett Osborn Takes Over The IBIS BAY Fun Desk!

Key West’s truly unique resort, IBIS BAY Waterfront Resort, is proud to announce that Key West-native Scarlett Osborn is taking over the resort’s Fun Desk, where visitors and locals can get the inside scoop on the best local beaches, adventures, activities, restaurants, shops, bar crawls and fishing expeditions.  One of the biggest benefits is that locals with visitors in town can now plan a fun-filled day or week no matter what types of things their visitors love to do!

“I love Key West, and I want every guest to have the best Key West experience possible,” said Osborn. “I’ve spent most of my life here and I want to share the best the island has to offer with as many people as I can.  Even though it’s located in the IBIS BAY lobby, the Fun Desk is open to everyone, not just guests staying at the resort.  Everyone on the island can find the most up-to-date info and best prices for everything in Key West at the IBIS BAY Fun Desk!  All they have to do is tell me what types of things they like to do, and I can arrange a day full of fun for thrill-seekers, shopaholics, foodies, fishermen or families!”

With new Fun Desk activity packages specially designed for different personality types, Osborn has made it quick and easy for locals and travelers to plan and book their adventures and experience Key West.  Located in the main lobby of the popular new IBIS BAY Waterfront Resort on North Roosevelt Boulevard, the Fun Desk brings together all the best attractions of Key West, saving travelers time and money by offering them everything they could want all in one place.  With a quick stop by the Fun Desk, it’s easy to book and schedule activities and then get on with enjoying everything the island has to offer.  IBIS BAY has also launched a new second location for the Fun Desk right on the beach outside the resort!

The full list of activities, packages, and specials can be found at, and visitors can book in advance by calling the Fun Desk at (305) 296-0616.

Scarlett Osborn grew up swimming, snorkeling, free diving and spear fishing on the island and she brings her love of Key West's aquatic lifestyle to her work at the Fundesk.  This was also the inspiration for Scarlett's own SOS line of designer swimwear which is now on sale at the IBIS BAY gift shop. Osborn’s SOS label will hold fashion shows at IBIS BAY to support local causes such as the Kevin Piper, Jr. Foundation.  She’s also active in the Key West economy, making sure the IBIS BAY gift shop will soon offer more local items such as hot sauces from Peppers of Key West. 

“I want to help stimulate the Key West economy,” Osborn added, “so I’m bringing more local items to the IBIS BAY gift shop and getting people excited about all the great nightlife, restaurants, shops, tours and watersports that make Key west so special!.”

IBIS BAY Waterfront Resort is known for having fun and original attractions such as Mixed Martial Arts Fight Nights, Thursday night Dive-In movies on the poolside movie screen, hosting performers during the Key West Songwriter’s Festival and holding fashion shows for local designers.
