Unless you backed up somewhere else before deleting the contacts and not since, i.e. iTunes on your computer, sorry but no. The backups are overwritten each time there is changed data - old backups on iCloud aren't saved.
There is no way to restore any data deleted from an iOS device if it isn't in an available backup.

I assume thAt you have a backup that you previously made onto your computer via iTunes. Maybe you could restore from that backup. I guess you would have to disable iCloud and restore from the backup on your computer.
