International - to - International: Do you have to clear Sri Lanka immigration and customs?
Assume luggage checked through to final destination and in possession of the onward boarding pass (or able to obtain one from the transfer desk airside).

Nope no need, dont expect very shwish a la SIN, but very straight forward small airport, and friendly staff, and the UL lounge is fairly pleasant if you have access.
So a 1h 35min connection time is OK?
Expertflyer indicates minimum connection time of 1.5h.
Shouldnt be an issue as long as flights are on-time. Many flights use bussing stands so can take a bit longer if thats the case.
Have you stayed at the Serendiva Transit Hotel in CMB? It's apparently airside next to the Emirates lounge.
Do you know how to book a room there? There doesn't seem to be any website for the property. The property is also not listed on expedia or other hotel booking websites.
