Virtualize a Debian system within Manjaro

Dear Colleagues,

There is an office where the standard desktop OS is Manjaro (a
clone of Arch Linux). There is not much choice actually.

I don't very much like Manjaro's packaging system and its lack of many
essential packages in binary format. When I need something as simple as
codesearch or apg or dateutils, it tries to compile them.

Willing to run a Debian instance within Manjaro, what's my best choice? 

The easiest thing that comes to mind is installing VirtualBox in
Manjaro, but are there less resource-intensive and GUI-dependent
options? Maybe some kind of chroot or container?
