It will be considered a Special Event, those involving more than 15 guests in the villa (including the guests registered at the villa).

There are some Permits to be obtained and some fees to be paid to the Desa (Village), to the Banjar of Seseh, to the Police (POLRES) and to the Villa owners. For this kind of events, a refundable Security Deposit will be required and special terms and conditions will be applied.
