To begin with, we should make a reservation. In fact, Bali's fifteen-meter limit can accommodate houses four stories high. But houses four stories high are rare here. This is connected with another Bali tradition - the fear of the number 4. It is considered unlucky here.
To get around the restriction, some hotels and entertainment complexes in Bali may build additional floors underground. This clever invention makes it possible to provide more places to accommodate guests without exceeding the existing ban.
And yet, in Bali you can find houses taller than four floors. Before the law prohibiting construction above the level of coconut trees was introduced, several buildings were built in Bali that exceed this level. These buildings generally date from the pre-restriction period. However, such cases are extremely rare and are not typical for the modern architecture of the island.
