A site in our intranet has been deleted by mistake.

I have the whole intranet's database backed up onto tapes.

Could anybody guide me as on to how to restore this particular site?

The database is Ms SQL 2008, the backup software is CA Arcserve r15

If you have the database backed up, then restore it to an alternate name -dont overwrite the original!!! - then use sp2010 central admin restore to open the offline database and backup the site. Then you can restore that backup to the live site collection.

Does it need to be restored in the same server that hosts sharepoint's db for the central admin to be able to see it?

Nope, but the farm account will need to be dbo on that database, something that would be there if restored to the same sql server.

If it is a single site that you need to reimport you will have to use export-import instead of backup-restore
