We have a CMS Server which runs with apache Server. During night time around 7 to 11 PM the cpu spikes and after some time it comes down automatically.

I tried different troubleshooting methods like reloading and restarting the apache server. Is there any permanent solution or what could be the root cause for this?

As we are all aware Apache is dealing with hardware resource(cpu+ram)...if you are enough HW and proper tuning of apache will lead the cpu spike issues.

These are below points can help you -->Is this your CMS+Apache running on the same machine? if yes please capture Thread Dumps and Heap Dump if required. -->CPU spike is dependent on how load is on the application level. -->As you said it's some particular time cpu spike issue,then you have to think out of the box ex: Network,DB etc..
