The Sims 4: Spa Day is the second game pack for The Sims 4. It was released on July 14, 2015 for PC and Mac.[1] The console version was released on April 18, 2019.

The pack features gameplay elements from The Sims 2: Bon Voyage. It includes a new type of venue, the spa, new objects such as the sauna, outfits and interactions, such as getting a massage at the massage chair and the mud bath. The pack also includes the new wellness skill; by taking yoga classes and learning how to meditate, Sims can build this skill. The higher their wellness skill, the more yoga poses they will be able to do, and the better massages they will be able to give.

On September 2, 2021, it was announced that Spa Day would be getting an update on September 7, 2021 to add significantly more content, including a new trait, a new aspiration, manicures, pedicures, and allowing children to participate in yoga and meditation.[2]

Wellness is also great to develop in the brand new Spa Lot assignment, which is the main feature of this game pack.

Developing the wellness skill also unlocks new food and drink recipes.

Sims can now take hand and foot massages with the new massage chair wherever they like. Massages can leave Sims with either a positive or negative moodlet. Along with the massages are mud baths and body soaks, a new way for Sims to relive their stress. They can be taken in every kind of bathtub in any type of lot.

Saunas are also returning in Spa Day. Saunas can be placed any type of lot and are another great way for Sims to relive their stress and relax. Along with these saunas, there is a new death by sauna. Saunas are also a new WooHoo location.

Yoga returns for Sims to develop. Yoga mats are new objects that can be purchased in buy mode and can be used everywhere. In the spa lots, there are yoga classes that Sims can take part in, if wanted.

Aquariums return from the previous games in this pack as well. Sims can catch or buy fish and put them into the aquarium for other Sims to view. With aquariums, new fish has been added to the fish collection.
